Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
For more than fifteen years, Robin Sharma has been quietly sharing with Fortune 500 companies and many of the super-rich a success formula that has made him one of the most sought-after leadership advisers in the world. Now, for the first time, Sharma makes his proprietary process available to you, so that you can get to your absolute best while helping your organization break through to a dramatically new level of winning in these wildly uncertain times.
In The Leader Who Had No Title, you will learn:
The book tells the story of Blake, a dissatisfied office worker who is offered a life-altering opportunity: spend one full day studying the lessons of a mysterious group of teachers and learn the secrets of limitless success at work and in life. Along with Blake, readers are introduced to the four inspirational teachers—a maid who proves that every job can be done with deep passion; a surfer who demonstrates how important it is to rise to the riskiest challenges in turbulent times; a former CEO who explains the value of great relationships; and a shoe shiner who proves that excellence begins within. Each offers a lesson to show that the most powerful leadership comes from within—and anything is possible when those skills are put to use. The Leader Who Had No Title is powerful, engaging, and packed with real-world lessons that will help any business person realize extraordinary results and reach their potential in uncertain times.
Iraq War vet Blake Davis is working a dull job at a bookstore when he's confronted by an eccentric stranger, one Tommy Flinn, who claims to have known his father and wants to mentor Blake. Thus begins this contrived, faux-inspirational leadership parable from Sharma (The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari). Making the lackluster argument that everyone in an organization has to be a leader, not just the CEO, Tommy schools Blake in the way of the hackneyed “Leading Without a Title” philosophy. As Blake encounters such saccharine caricatures as Anna, a self-actualized hotel housekeeper; Jackson Chan, a CEO-turned gardener; and Jet Brisley, a superstar massage therapist, he learns that by changing his attitude, he can change his life. Though this message will hit home with magical-thinking acolytes—Blake crows on the first page, “The principles and tools you'll discover will automatically cause your career to fly, your happiness to soar, and your absolute best to fully express itself”—awkward writing and abundant platitudes make it of little benefit to readers looking for serious leadership advice.
