Why you should read Unusually Excellent
Superb – “unusually excellent” – leadership involves three core values and nine basic skills, including elements such as authenticity, vision and trustworthiness. Leadership consultant John Hamm analyzes and presents these qualities in an expert, inspirational and engaging manner. At times, the author uses offensive language to make his points, which hardly seems necessary in this otherwise worthy book. With appreciation for the author’s passion, as well as his leadership savvy, getAbstract recommends this insightful guide to aspiring and experienced leaders.
