Delivers what it promises

This book isn't a complete treatise on the subject rather a way for new leaders to learn what it will take to become excellent and a way for experienced leaders to ask themselves a few critical questions to take their organizations to the next level. It is a great book to keep on hand for a quick check up. My big mistake in leadership previously was getting so wrapped up in the details that the big picture got out of focus. Spence reminded me that my primary job as a leader is keep focused on the big picture and not let details pull me off track. On the subject of focus, Spence says, “Help other people change their focus, and you can help them change their lives.” I also really liked that Spence wove his own experience into the book. As a bonus, the book is sprinkled with a lot of excellent quotes from others.
