Reviews - What do customers think about Leading from the Front: No-Excuse Leadership Tactics for Women?

Not Just For Women  May 9, 2008
I purchased this book for two reasons. First I had seen editorials by both CPTs Lynch and Morgan on the [...] (applying the Art of War to success in daily life) website and was impressed with their perspectives. Second, I have created a professional reading program for my IT staff and as a (male) manager of a department dominated by women, I want to provide resources which are relevant to their career and personal development.

My first observation is that this book is for women in the same way that every business and leadership book over the last two decades is for men. The fact is that this book is full of important and reasoned perspective that is relevant to ANYONE looking to take charge of their situation and succeed.

The book is easy to read and full of specific relevant, interesting examples. CPTs Lynch and Morgan offer insight into their own struggles and successes. Through their sharing they exemplify one of their principles; that success starts with courage. They have shared stories of failure as well as achievement. This honest approach reinforces their message and invests the reader in the outcome.

I'm sure that I am biased by my own military experience, and the respect I have for those who make the sacrifices required to serve and lead. The application of lessons learned in the military to business, family, and emotional success is sometimes difficult. These leaders have done an excellent job of establishing a case for and an approach to that application.

As the subtitle suggests this book should indeed be read by women who are seeking to take charge and become leaders. However this book really should be read by anyone, not just women, who would embrace the opportunity to apply the lessons of someone else's sacrifice. This is an important addition to the professional library of any student dedicated to personal development.
You'll remember the tips in this book, and they work too  Sep 23, 2007
I loved how the authors used their own "wow" experiences to relate to everyday situations.

The principles are easy to understand, and most importantly, easy to remember and follow. I tried out just one of the tips at first and found that I gained more composure in difficult situations, both at work and at home. The book is a quick read too.

I loaned my copy out to several friends (young professionals & 30-somethings) and they just kept passing it around to their friends. Apparently, everyone who read my copy went out and bought their own to keep. I finally got mine back.

An Executive Director at a private college even told me that she's recommending that "Leading From the Front" be added to the required reading list for a couple of courses.
A Great Book for Everyone!  Jun 26, 2007
I heard about this book from, "The Girls Guide to Being a Boss Without Being a Bitch" (which I also recommend). I decided to conduct one of the leadership workshops "Strive for Five" that Courtney and Angie recommend. You have a group of five women - in my case there are six of us - read the book and have weekly conference calls to discuss and share ideas. It has been such a valuable experience for all of us and we are enjoying the experience tremendously! I highly recommend this workshop idea to any and every manager out there. Not only that, but it really has great life lessons for everyone as we all need to be leaders in every aspect of our lives (not just at work).
Solid leadership basics, with good application in the workplace.  May 8, 2007
As female manager of people for the past 30 + years, I believe it is never too late to review basic leadership principles. While I feel I regularly subscribe to Angie and Courtney's thought processes, I enjoyed reading this book and was impressed with how it hit on parallels that apply to business and the armed forces. The only point I disagreed with was the negativity regarding crying at work. Many females (myself included) have cried at work when faced with frustrating circumstances. I tend to think this is not viewed as negative by others as it is simply a release of emotions that cannot always be controlled. At times, it is an outward communication of passion regarding the issue at hand. Other than this point, I thought the book was great and have recommended it to direct reports and peers - male and female!
Leadership for women  Feb 26, 2007
I bought this book for a number of women employees and managers that I work with - initial reactions were reserved but after reading the book all thanked me for the gift. The book does a great job of making it clear that women can lead just like men and can face and overcome the same challenges. The authors tell their personal stories and relate them to the leadership principles. In all, a great book for women 'hesitating' to lead or those seeking to understand the difference between management and leadership.
