Well Organized Lessons on How to Fire Up an Organization
Mar 29, 2009
This book is a well organized treatise on the importance of human connections to keep an organization vital and employees fired up instead of burned out. Overall it is a useful book, but in some ways it ultimately tells us things we already know. That said, it is always good to reminded of what makes great leaders or managers in an organization.
The best aspects of the book are fourfold. First it clearly lays out a philosophy for firing up an organization, including concrete strategies and actions that can be taken to accomplish this. Secondly, it provides concrete and quite interesting examples of both good leaders and bad leaders, and illustrates how the lack of good leadership, or leadership that does not build human connections, ultimately undermines the success of an organization. Third, it is very well organized and easy to read. And finally, the last section of the book giving examples of great leaders is very interesting.
Overall, this book is rather useful as a reminder about what to do and not do to fire up an organization.
