Description

Product Description

 “I met last week with your leaders,” Ben began. “I heard what they had to say. And you know, they make a good point.” He paused. Take charge, Ben, he told himself. Take control. He looked around the conference room. Take, take, take. Was that really what he was here to do?
 
With their acclaimed bestseller The Go-Giver, Bob Burg and John David Mann proved that a heartfelt parable could also express a powerful idea. In The Go-Giver Leader (originally pub­lished as It’s Not About You), they offer an equally compelling tale about a struggling small business and the ambitious young executive trying to lead them to a crucial decision.
 
Allen & Augustine has manufactured high-quality chairs for decades. Its people take pride in their work and feel loyal to their owners and management team. But this revered company is now at a crossroads, hurt by a tough economy, foreign competition, and a cash crunch. The air is filled with the scent of uncertainty, anxiety, perhaps even panic.
 
Into this setting enters Ben, who’s been assigned by a larger firm to promote a merger that will rescue Allen & Augustine. Ben’s facts are undeniable: the chair maker can either merge and modernize or go bankrupt and vanish. So why can’t he persuade anyone to buy in, from the CEO on down?
Will Ben find a way to sway the employee shareholders before the climactic vote? And can Allen & Augustine survive without losing its soul? The answers may surprise you as you follow Ben on his journey to understanding that the path to genuine influence lies less in taking leadership than in giving it.
 
This revised and updated edition includes a new introduction, a discussion guide, and a Q&A with the authors.

Review

“We should all seek to practice the message illustrated so elegantly in The Go-Giver Leader—that great leaders don’t try to act like ‘leaders,’ they strive to be more human.”
Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last

“This book captures the essence of life and leadership. I recommend it!”
John C. Maxwell, author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
 
The Go-Giver Leader carries an important message for leaders, parents, and all other humans—that leadership, fundamentally, is about other people.”
Captain L. David Marquet, U.S. Navy (ret.), author of Turn the Ship Around!
 
“Genuine leadership is about your team, your customers, your community, and your legacy. Share this book with those you care about.”
Seth Godin, author of Linchpin, Tribes, and Purple Cow
 
“Burg and Mann have, once again, masterfully employed common sense and good judgment to show that success happens when you have an egalitarian spirit, practice Golden Rule behavior every day, and empower your people to make decisions from their hearts and souls. I LUV this book.”
Colleen Barrett, President Emerita of Southwest Airlines
 
“Burg and Mann are not just great storytellers, they are also men of heart and soul. The Go-Giver Leader gets to the heart of lasting business success.”
Gary Keller, author of The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results
 
“A manifesto for twenty-first-century leadership packaged in a fun and engaging story. Buy this book and get it in the hands of everyone in your company!”
Darren Hardy, publisher of SUCCESS magazine, author of The Compound Effect

“A fast read that reinforces leadership fundamentals … truly applicable to any manager, anywhere.” 
Booklist 

“Burg and Mann, authors of the best-seller  The Go-Giver, have written a compelling fable that succeeds as both a thought-provoking learning tool and, rather surprisingly, as a work of fiction with an unexpected plot twist at the end.” 
— Soundview 
 
“The Go-Giver books are love manifest in a system.”
Robert G. Allen,
New York Times bestselling author,  Multiple Streams of Income and The One Minute Millionaire

What Many "Leaders" Don''t Know About Leadership

Every executive who thinks leadership is "all about me" should read THE GO-GIVER LEADER for an eye-opening look at what it''s really all about. The authors couch their message in a story about a young exec who tries to persuade a small, struggling firm with a strong people-focused culture that they need to let themselves be bought out by a bigger company. Young Ben''s epiphany about truly effective leadership comes about during friendly discussions with an outside marketing expert, Claire, and her Miss Marple-like Aunt Elle. In this slim book''s 166 pages, I believe you''ll learn more about leadership than in an MBA program at Harvard Business School. As Le Herron, the retired CEO of Scotts, has said, "Leadership isn''t about what you get out of it. It''s about what others get out of it." Strongly recommended.

I read it, I liked lit, but I just didn''t take a lot away from it (as measured by volume of information). The quality of the material is excellent and in line with the other "Go-Giver" books. As i said, the value of this work will depend on how much experience you have or don''t have.

The Go-Giver Leader has a message for the custodian and CEO alike. We can ALL give. In too many instances the moral of this story is scoffed at or frowned upon when in reality it''s the principals shared in this book that are the true game changers. Those of us who practice these principals are often thought of or viewed as weak when in actuality it takes great strength to live them. The Go-Giver Leader reminds us of this in an entertaining yet informative format. Kudos to the authors.

Once I picked up this book and started reading it I couldn''t put it down. The story line kept you involve while conveying a message about being an effective leader. So many key points and parable that had me re-reading many pages to absorb the content. If you haven''t read this what are you waiting for. It''s time to go back and read all of the Go-Giver books to gain more insight.

Even though this book is a parable the teal life situations and scenarios are spot on. Unfortunately all too often business executives and people in perceived authority have this uncanny ability to handle people and situations opposite of how they should continually trying to strong arm , threaten or coerce people do perform or decide on things their way, not realizing a man convinced against his will is of the same option still.
