Book Reviews - Silent leadership
by Life Positive
Canadaís bestselling business leadership guru is back with another book to add to his collection of hits. This book deals with how each one can be a leader in his own capacity. Written in the same way as his first bestseller, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, this one deals with a young employee who is directionless and seeks purpose in his life.
The values of a great leader arenít taught at any institute, they are inherent in each one of us and just have to be uncovered. The book talks about how each one of us can be a leader at what we do. We don't have to be at the top of the ladder or in a managerial position to do so. Excelling in what we do because we like and appreciate it is what brings satisfaction, not the promise of a large cushy job at some point in the future for which you sacrifice your happiness in the present. Taking inspiration from the most ordinary of people such as a housekeeper in a hotel, a bicycle store owner, a gardener, and a massage therapist, Sharma so plainly shows that an attitudinal shift is all that's required to get you from just another employee, to the employee of the month.
A valuable addition to Sharmaís collection, this book teaches us that leading isnít about glory or fame or being the alpha member of the team. It requires humility, dedication and a vision that is complete and inclusive of everyone else. Each member of a team has the responsibility of leading it, playing their part to the best so that everyone succeeds.
