The Heart of a Leader

The Heart of a Leader

Good leaders serve.

If you need a bit of guidance or motivation in your dealings with others, you may enjoy reading The Heart of a Leader: Insights on the Art of Influence by Ken Blanchard. This little book is packed with pithy quotes to help you learn how to be a leader who serves.

Just to give you an example:

People with humility don’t think less of themselves, they just think of themselves less.

How about this one:

Good religion is like good football; it isn’t talk, it’s action.

The ideas are not particularly novel, but they are phrased well. Each quote is accompanied by an explanation of the principle, illustrating how to put the other person first in your interactions.

And, yes, we are all leaders, because we all influence others.

The Heart of a Leader could be a very quick read if you just sat down and worked from cover to cover. However, this is a book you really ought to savor to appreciate fully.

Great reminders for us all!
