A great short read for anyone looking to lead more effectively. The author presents six proven tools you can use to keep projects and goal deliverables on track, embrace multiple stakeholder viewpoints and create a team environment that is results focused and accountable.
When these tools are integrated across the organisation and adopted by your direct reports their impact becomes even more powerful. Whether you run a small team or lead a multinational, the tools you learn in the Leadership Journal will help you excel as a leader worth following.
As a credentialed project manager (PMP) for the past 10 years, I can attest to the concepts and approach presented in this book. It does a great job at laying out a simple and concise, but complete framework for leading teams to get things done. I think it would be particularly beneficial to newer project managers or people put in charge of a project or other team initiative to give them the tools necessary to get the job done without a long ramp-up period. The book defines 6 tools to use, such as expectations exchange and ground rules, and while there isn’t necessarily much that is new here, the value of the book is in how these concepts are presented along with several examples to make them easier to understand.
The tools that have been provided are not necessarily new. However the author has done a wonderful job of distilling these 6 time-tested tools out of a plethora of tools that currently exist . These tools when used together, act like a juggernaut that can drive engagements effectively.
The purpose of the leadership journal is to give leaders, and those who manage projects, tools to help with problem solving, communication, project management. All of the tools are used based on a Plan-Do-Review framework which is similar to the Deming problem solving cycle. The nice thing about the journal is that the management tools are simple to use and work for all stages of a project. Overall, it is a great book with some simple, effective tools that will work for a project, or in day-to-day management.
This journal is very well-written in that it guides managers on the process of how to lead a team, explained with real-life examples. It provides tools that enhance one's discipline and leadership skills.
I wished I had this book when I started my career. No one ever told me how to run a meeting and how to keep things moving forward to achieve the goal. This book explained the tool, step by step on how and when to use it. If you are a leader who wants to implement or have an impact. This book provide the tool for you to succeed. Thank you firmsconsulting for always putting up a great content.
First of all it is highly priced. And the contents are not detailed enough understand and use these tools outlined in the book, only people who got training or attended the author's video program relating to this only can use these tools outlined in the book. It is very high level. A consultant or leadership coach can not use it as reference for his/her consulting engagement. May be little useful for project management or solving a particular problem. I believe the book is an advertising tool for the author's programs available on their website. I really disappointed with the tiny book from a consulting learner perspective.
This book is a must read for leaders and those aspiring the role of the leader. Like all the previous journals, this journal is a must have. As leaders, there are many tools we have at our disposals to get results. Out of the many tools, this journal presents to us six key tools we should consistently use. I find this journal very helpful and I strongly recommend you get this journal as well.
This is a perfect little book to carry around to remind yourself about leadership skills. In the end, you are effective only if you get results. This book gives you the key tracking tools to ensure your team is on track to deliver their workstream without constant checking. This frees up your time to think about the creative solutions that can keep moving your team and company forward.
This is a short book summing up the things every result-oriented leader should be doing with discipline. In a sense, those are the mundane activities, categorized into 6 tools, a manager has to perform to achieve results. From the academic perspective, the book may be more appropriately titled "The Manager's Journal" (yet a less appealing title), although leadership skill and management skill are most of the time interwoven in practice.
