“Seven Secrets…is for maverick leaders who want to shake things up. It’s an inspiring read.” Dame Anita Roddick, co-founder, The Body Shop
“An entertaining read that will help take leadership in your organization to the next level.” Don Peppers, founding partner, Peppers & Rogers, “one of the foremost business gurus of our times” (Business 2.0 magazine)
“A useful and readable account of how some extraordinary leaders operate outside ‘leadership as usual” Professor Warren Bennis, author of Geeks & Geezers, ‘The Dean of Leadership’ (FT)
“These guys really are the best at what they do…Sit up and take notice.” Simon Woodroffe, founder, YO! Sushi
Chartered Management Institute (online review)
“A great little book with a lot of big ideas that is well laid out, easy to read and packed with a wealth of examples. There is an excellent ‘This chapter in 30 seconds’ summary at the start of each chapter. Packed with the thinking and practice of key individuals…and illustrated with apposite cartoons and quotes. The result is a book that not only provides light entertainment but is also a serious read full of fresh ideas and practical advice that should sit on the bookshelf of all managers.”
“Very practical and includes plenty of easy-to-read advice such as how Microsoft inspires, EasyGroup innovates and Harley-Davidson builds customer loyalty… This book will teach you a great deal about business and management.”
“The authors take the question “what is an inspired leader”, and flesh it out considerably with explanation, analysis and example. The wealth of examples they provide is the book’s core strength. When such successful people speak, their words really resonate. Training managers tasked with spreading the gospel will find lots of ammunition in the book.”
“If you are really determined, you can read Seven Secrets of Inspired Leaders in just four minutes, since each chapter has a 30-second summary. But the book’s irreverently snappy and funky style means it is a real page-turner anyway. Expect to have many of your favourite preconceptions about business and leadership challenged vigorously…This is like shock therapy for listless leaders, but you can’t expect to become an inspiration without leaving your comfort zone.”
