Item description for Leadership Made Easy (Entrepreneur Made Easy Series) by Randall D. Ponder...

"Ponder provides an imaginative and eminently digestible road map of leadership principles and techniques of leader development that will be of great value to experienced leaders and novices alike."
--General (Ret.) Carl E. Vuono, former chief of staff of the U.S. Army

"Ponder captures and conveys the behaviors needed to establish a culture of leadership and drive individual and organizational performance to new heights."
--Dr. Henry McKinnel Jr., chairman and CEO of Pfizer Inc.

The conventional wisdom that says that some people are born leaders and others are not is wrong. Leadership is actually a skill--and one that can be developed.

Author Randall Ponder identifies the 15 essential leadership skills and teaches you how to develop and use them. Plus, he explores the challenge that leaders face and offers simple, task-oriented solutions.

Skills include:

  • Problem solving and decision making
  • Training and development
  • Vision
  • Conflict resolution
  • Motivation
  • And more!

Reviews - What do customers think about Leadership Made Easy (Entrepreneur Made Easy Series)?

Superb Overview with Great Detail  May 27, 2008
I am completely amazed with this book. It covers everything I needed to get up and running as a new manager. I gave it to my director, and she loved it. What is unique about this book? It addresses the basic, intermediate, and advanced skills that a leader/manager needs to succeed in the workplace. It contains little overt theory, but the theory is imbedded in the text as real-life examples and explanations. It gives you the basics on 15 skills and shows you how to develop each of those skills as needed. This book is destined to be a classic.

A Superior Leadership Book  May 22, 2007
I had read this book recently (a co-worker's) and had to purchase it myself. It is one of the most concise books ever packaged into a softcover easy-to-use format. I am most impressed by the analysis of the most valuable skills needed by managers and leaders. It is, without doubt, an easy-to-implement reference and a "must have" as a desk reference. It is worth 10 times the price.
A superior leadership book  Jul 30, 2006
My staff and I have read this book and discussed it among ourselves. We are impressed. Initially, we thought it would be similar to other management books, but it is refreshingly different. Why? The words flow easily, simply, and are to-the-point. The messages the author sends are relevant and needed in this troubled age. Finally, the book is organized in such a way that it moves effortlessly from topic to topic in such ways that make sense. We strongly recommend it.
A very well-written book; a joy to read  Apr 22, 2006
Over the past few years I have had an interest in learning as much as I can about leadership in a small business setting. As a result, I have read quite a number of business books that discuss the topic. Normally the title does not match the content of the book, the outline of the book is lacking in some way, or the chapters are not written well. None of these shortcomings appeared when I read this book. How refreshing!

I typically read a business book by examining its table of contents, scanning the point headings as I flip through the chapters, and then reading a little more carefully the sections on which I am not particularly familiar. Then I speed read each page to finalize my take on the book. This book was so pleasant to read since it was so logical and clearly written.

The author introduces the reader at the outset to different leadership styles and the importance of proper attitude exuded by leaders. He then splits the topic of the book into three sections: Primary Leader Skills (technical/analytical), Secondary Leader Skills (people/relationships), and Ultimate Leader Skills (strategic/strategy). Each of these three topics is discussed in reasonable detail.

My favorite chapters in this book were entitled: (1) Importance of a Leader, (2) Your Leadership Style, (6) Priorities Management, (10) Communication, (14) Conflict Resolution, (17) Strategy, and (18) Change. Even though I am somewhat familiar with each of these topics, when I was doing my speed reading I found myself slowing down my normal pace for these chapters since I found the author's approach to them to be interesting.

In this book the author explains leadership so the reader can easily understand it. Leadership is a highly complex subject, and the author has done a great job in this book's 236 pages. Don't skip reading this book if you are interested in learning about what is involved in being a good leader.
Great reading and learning experience  Jan 7, 2006
Wow-I am impressed. This hits the nail on the head and pulls no punches as to what we managers need to know. It's worth 10 X the price.
