The title is pretty catchy. But why read it?
The reason for including this book for review is because it’s all about self-leadership.
Everyone has different methods to be at their most effective – by increasing your self-awareness of these, you’ll have a greater toolkit at your disposal.
Depending on how you read the book and choose to apply it, so you’ll get different things from it.
Sounds obvious, but like anything, your mindset will play a big part in the value you gain.
The cynics view might be… “oh no, another self-help book.” Another might be: “I’ve got no intention of making radical changes to my career, so why read it?”
Applying some savvy to this book however, could see you finding gems that will help you out immediately on a range of topics:
- Time Management
- Personal branding
John Williams packages things up under the heading of “10 secrets to transform your working life.”
So whether you’ve got a sales target to hit, a team to lead through change or the burning need to exercise more, you’ll find management and leadership ideas to help you.
When it comes to creativity and innovation, Spring like to get busy when developing people. There is a quote in the book that stood out by Robert Fritz, who is a composer, filmmaker and organisational consultant:
“If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.”
The beauty of thinking like this, is the invitation to dream and come up with new ideas.
And that can apply to the mundane boring problems that you face daily, just as much as the big “out there” goals that seem too far off.
And to quote from secret #6 “Play it out, explore, experiment. Find your unique voice, discover your brand.”
