By The Book

Leadership Briefs challenges leadership practitioners to:

1. Shape an organizational culture that accelerates the development of emerging leaders needed for business expansion and succession planning, and...

2. Stretch the leadership capacity of existing leaders by identifying competencies needed in current roles to more effectively and efficiently achieve anticipated outcomes.

The culture challenge is to identify the competencies that uniquely define the leadership profile of the organization and assess leaders against that profile.

The Assess, Learn, and Grow model articulates the pathway to move from vision to reality. Leadership Briefs is written for the sustaining leader who is looking for practical insight and applicable solutions that can be implemented immediately to solve these leadership challenges.

  • There are many books on leadership. Here is the one you need to read. Why? From my studies and experience, it is truth, it is concise, and it elaborates enough to bring understanding. If you wish to improve your leadership skills in the economic sphere, the governance sphere, the sphere of your beliefs, or all three, you will be thrilled about how much you learn from Leadership Briefs.

  • Yet another book about how to be a good leader? Hardly. Dick Daniels has captured the joy and the pain of being an effective leader and how to channel both those emotions towards a higher performing team and organization. Leadership Briefs is about connecting your own experience with best practices and keen observations. Use this as a handbook, not as bedtime reading.

  • Leadership is not just a state of mind. It's a state of action. In Leadership Briefs, Dick Daniels gives you actionable ideas of how to be a better leader and a better role model for future leaders.

  • Leadership Briefs” by Dick Daniels is a must-have guide for all professionals who aspire to leadership positions. It starts by giving the reader basic knowledge on leadership development. The author first invites the readers to ask themselves a few questions. These are questions for both leaders and followers. I found the questions to be the best way to begin this book, as it set the tone for what was coming.

    Even though the book is geared to people who are seeking to move into leadership positions, and thus is a ‘business book,’ it actually reads in a very personal tone. As the reader, the voice of the author made me look within to discover whatever leadership characteristics I already possessed, so that I could develop and enrich them to take me to the next level. The book also ventures into Company Culture, Strategy, Organization and Communication, and how these play in the leader’s mind to reach goals and lead successfully. One of my favorite parts of this book is the ‘Leadership Debrief’ that makes it possible for readers to revisit quickly, a bullet point concept at any giving moment.

    Dick Daniels’ writing style is awesome. He definitely has the gift to communicate complex ideas in a simple and to-the-point style. This made the book enlightening and easy to read at the same time. The way the author designed the book not only makes sense and flows perfectly; it also allows the reader to visit concepts as standalone portions. This no doubt will contribute to its shelf value as I am sure many will be inclined to keep it to re-visit over and over again.

    I found “Leadership Briefs” by Dick Daniels to be an insightful and very helpful guide and a quick reference for professionals of all levels, who want to pursue leadership roles. It is definitely a five- star valuable tool for leaders!
