Why you should read The Leader Who Had No Title
If you read past the somewhat therapeutic language of this parable, you’ll quickly realize that its slightly corny nature actually makes it more powerful. Motivational consultant Robin Sharma’s modern fable evokes age-old wisdom in accessible language. He uses the schooling of the fictitious Blake Davis, a sort of lost soul, as the backdrop for imparting critical lessons about developing leadership qualities and skills in your personal and professional life. The hero’s mentor takes him to visit four powerful teachers. Each one imparts an aspect of the “Lead Without a Title” philosophy, summarizes five related rules with a memorable acronym and assigns an “instant action step.” Pithy aphorisms from literary, political, business and spiritual gurus pepper the story. Sharma often reminds you of your powerful innate abilities and worth. Particularly if you are a self-help novice or feel in the doldrums at work, getAbstract recommends this charming book as the jump start to recharging your leadership energy.
