Read this Book! Mar 7, 2001
I read "Awaken the Leader Within" while I was doing research for my tape series "Jesus and the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership." This is an excellent book and provided me with many wonderful insights. If you are searching for a book that is well written, fun to read, and filled with pointed and practical insights about leadership, you'll love this book. In fact, you'll probably find yourself referring others to it.
Very practical leadership help for everyone Nov 29, 2000
I have read many dozens of books on leadership, but this book provides more sound, practical advise to help everyone be a leader wherever they are.
It focuses on character as the most important characteristic of effective leaders. They are trustworthy, transparent, honest, have vision and encourage others to go with them.
Other sections include: "Humble leaders rely on God for his strength and guidance. Accomplished leaders know that commitment eventually leads to success. Prudent leaders know their weaknesses and fortify them. Inspirational leaders infect their team with a compelling vision of the future. Wise leaders consistently make good decisions. Victorious leaders know how to build a team that's greater than the sum of its parts. Creative leaders know how to facilitate innovation. Great leaders know how to give away honor. "
The references are excellent and I am meeting with a group of men weekly to study the book using the study guide that is included.
Practical, insightful and timeless leadership principles! May 24, 2000
As the general manager of a high technology company with global operations, I found Bill's insights to be very thought provoking. Bill clearly communicates with helpful and humorous illustrations essential elements of practical leadership for today. For example, Bill acknowledges we are in a world of breakneck change and shows that leaders must be change masters to help their teams thrive. This is a book any leader would find helpful whether you're in a corporate, non-profit, community, sacred or secular leadership position. I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends and colleagues.
