Who Is This Book For?
This book is for anyone who is at the beginning of their leadership journey or is near the end of their leadership and looking to leave behind an honorable legacy.
Are you finding it difficult to work with a leader that has no vision? How about working with a leader that doesn't know how to motivate his/her followers? Or are you wondering how to motivate an unmotivated person?
What about discovering your unique purpose as a leader? Or would knowing the most effective daily habit every leader should know and develop change the life of your leadership?
This is book is for anyone who can relate to those scenarios and so many more.
What It Will Help You Do?
Are you seeking practical wisdom into what it means to be an effective and successful leader? This book is an aid in which to discover the successful leader within you. Discover how to become a leader that your organization can be proud of.
In short, this book can make you a better leader and more influential in whatever leadership area you find yourself in.
This book can also help you to become a leader that develops and mentors leaders. You see, this book is divided into three part:
In the first part of this book, John expounds upon the difficult questions that every leader should ask themselves. In the second part, he dives into the hard questions that a leader should be asking their team members.
However, in the final part of this book, John responds to some of the most perplexed questions of situations every day leaders like yourself are facing, and gives answers in these difficult areas with profound wisdom and insight.
The Best Part
To be completely honest with you, I think this is one of John's best work, and I have read several of his books (some are better than others).
As some of you may know (if you follow John at all), John is near 70 years old and his leadership journey is coming to an end. Of course, we hope that he is around for several more years, but what you read in this book is a different side of John entirely.
He explains in this book that in these last years he is focusing the majority of his attention on mentoring and leaving behind a legacy to be proud of. He has made it is life long goal and mission to add as much value to people lives as he possibly can.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to sit down and talk with John face-to-face, or to have a personal interview with John. But by reading this book everyone can have that opportunity.
When I read this book I felt as if I was given the once in a life time honor of being able to interview John and the subject that he is most passionate about - leadership.
What Would Make It Even Better?
Usually I do not say this about a book that I buy because I can always find something that could have been added to give the book more value, but for what it is worth, I really would not add to anything that is mentioned in this book or insist that something more accompany this resource. I think John really did give the leadership world an incredible service by writing and sharing this book with us.
The only thing that could make this book better is if you, the reader, actually took the time to absorb as much wisdom as you possibly can from this book when you read it.
How It Changed My Life
This book has really changed my life in several different ways, but in short, as I stated above, I felt that I was given a once-in a life time opportunity to actually be able to "interview" John on the subject of leadership, and you can have that some once-in a life time opportunity when you read it.
Good Leaders Ask Great Questions (AFF) is a book that was written for any leader, whether or not you are leading a large organization or a small group. John really wants to help you succeed in your leadership and by applying the ideas that he shares in this book, I believe, it is his way of doing just that.
I highly recommend, if you have not already done so, to get your hands on a copy of Good Leaders Ask Great Questions (AFF) and let it change the life of your leadership just as it has changed mine. And I encourage you to really pay close attention to the Q&A section of the book and consider it my gift to you.
