Reviews and Testimonials

I applaud Dr. Brown’s approach to this leadership book. He introduced and defined leadership in the Preface so that the content of the book could be focused on the relationship aspect of leadership. In doing so, the layout of the book clearly illustrates the importance of connecting. Leaders must be able to connect with the people they lead, or they will be ineffective. Followers must feel leaders are authentic, engaged, and invested to be worthy of their loyalty. Let’s face it without loyal followers, leaders won’t succeed.

Dr. Brown does a wonderful job emphasizing the leader - follower relationship and stressing the importance of using resources such as emotional intelligence, employee engagement, inspiration and communication as ways to effectively connect. He also illustrates the importance of recognizing the fact that at any point in time, the leader could be the follower and the follower could be the leader making the need for a meaningful professional relationship even more important!
