I recommend this to old and new leaders. Great and easy reading. it was recommended to me and very glad I read it.
Leadership expert, John Adair, has come up with a delightful and enlightening little book on effective leadership. He succintly explains the key elements of successful leaders. Citing various sources and using a unique presentation style, he highlights the fundamental aspects of leadership which are so critical in today's highly dynamic operating environment.

If you are seeking to be an outstanding leader where you do not have to rely on your position or authority to reach organisational goals, then I recommend you to read this book. You will, among other things, learn to set a shared vision and motivate followers to willingly and enthusiastically work towards the achievement of the shared goals.

Overal, an awesome and practical book on inspiring leadership.
This short volume collects some of the most time-honored principles of leadership and compiles them in a series of short, easy-to-read chapters. Author John Adair draws on some unlikely sources for his material, finding inspiration even in Cromwell, the fanatical Puritan revolutionary; in the experience of the German army during World War II and in other characters and events not usually cited in management tomes. Adair's classic on leadership, now reissued, is a very useful handbook that resembles inspirational reading more than an expository how-to. On the downside, the book needs tightening. In particular, the author's lists of "key points" tend to be vague, passive and general. Nonetheless, we believe that gem seekers will find useful nuggets of leadership counsel here and that business readers will enjoy the intriguing array of quotable stories and sources.
