If you are into management this book will be helpful for you to an extent It deals with the opinions by experts scholars and gurus in the field of management how to lead why to lead and when to come forward as a leader Though one thing needs to be said that dynamics have certainly changed from that time I didn't read this book I studied it I wrote down most of my thoughts on a notebook since that seemed like the right thing to do in this case I've transcribed a couple of uotes that´ll make it easy for me to review what I found relevant and for you to have a better idea about what this book is aboutperhaps what we really need in the post management era is a realistic portrayal of the skills people at all levels of organizations can be taught to utilize effectively as well as a realistic portrayal of the work it takes to get there and the limitations and constraints that each and every leader must face But then again are we really sure we need another leadership book?When people feel valued as people they actively involve themselves in activities that benefit their group organization or societyleaders for instance may feel betrayed if followers do not work sufficiently hard or if they violate the rules that should have been internalized Followers may feel that leaders have violated the implicit contract if leaders fail to act on behalf of the group and instead act to promote their own personal interestsTo think about conditions rather than causes is to think differently about teamsGreat coaching can be enormously valuable to a team in exploiting the potential of a sound performance situation but cannot reverse the impact of poor direction or a flawed team structure Unfortunately the authors don´t go into sufficient detail about team structureExpression of minority views however can encourage better problem solving because it stimulates divergent thought about the issueLeaders who combine these ualities with inspirational motivation the ability to articulate a vision for the group´s future intellectual stimulation uestioning old ways and stimulating the exploration of new ones and individualized considerations dealing with each person´s needs abilities and aspirations are thought of as transformational leadersChapters worth noting and re readingOn the Psychological Exchange Between Leaders and FollowerClaiming Authority Negotiating Challenges for Women LeadersThe Perception of Conspiracy Leader Paranoia as Adaptive Cognition this chapter has some powerful stuff on ruminationNote to self read most of their books to self full notes on the yellow notebook
