The Disciplined Leader

My review from Amazon of The Disciplined Leader by John Manning

5.0 out of 5 stars The Freedom of Discipline, July 15, 2015

This review is from: The Disciplined Leader: Keeping the Focus on What Really Matters (Hardcover)
Discipline is a trait I resisted. It felt like handcuffs but the 52 lessons (yes, if you instituted one a week for a year, you would become a remarkable leader) helped me understand that discipline is liberating. “Adopting new leadership habits is a process,not an event” and discipline makes the relentless incremental changes pleasurable. My favorite chapter, of many favorites, is #52 “Giving Back”. John Manning explains the power of giving on the giver and receiver and a culture if it is expressed from a place of gratitude. This one should be on every bookshelf.
