                          A very good book.......

The book Inspirational Leader relates to real time/current markets & business environments. Most if not all should be able to fully relate to and comprehend the direction that is so clearly and vividly directed!
While I do not agree philosophically with all of the roll models, I do acknowledge and respect their work and methodology.

I read "Good to Great" at least twice on CD and feel that Inspirational Leader (not saying it is the same book) takes up where GG left off.
An excellent read, very well written, great content that crosses all organizational lines, horizontally & vertically!

We need inspirational leaders, we need to inspire this generation and the next generation and the next generation, on what great leadership is all about. According to Drucker, we need leaders who can lift a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, and the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
