Proven Leadership Experience, August 26, 2010

By Mitchell Weinzetl

This review is from: Leadership: Texas Hold 'Em Style (Paperback)

I recently authored a book on leadership, and so, I have some very specific thoughts and ideas about what it means to be an effective leader. As a result, I tend to be somewhat skeptical of other leadership books, which often tend to be of the flavor of the month variety, and are often lacking in substance. I was pleasantly surprised to see how closely the content in Leadership - Texas Hold'Em Style, aligned with my thoughts beliefs on the subject.

Authors Andrew Harvey and Raymond Foster have used their combined experience and wisdom to outline and describe critical leadership behaviors and characteristics, which have been field tested and proven effective in practice. The authors cleverly use poker analogies, stories, and other examples, to enhance the reader's understanding of the subject matter, and to demonstrate how the concepts explained can be implemented as part of a comprehensive leadership strategy.

There are many jewels in this book, waiting to be unearthed by leaders, new or tenured, who have a desire to better understand and implement effective leadership strategies in this very complex arena.
