Book Review - Transformational Leadership

About the BookNo one is immune to these rocky economic times.  Innovative businesspeople all over the country are adapting their organizational structures to survive, profit, and compete in today’s unreliable market.  The practical and relevant advice in Transformational Leadership: A Blueprint for Real Organizational Change (Parkhurst Brothers) by Randy Dobbs can be applied to major corporations and small businesses alike, as well as to non-profits, universities, hospitals, and other institutions.
Transformational Leadership differs from often dry and notoriously boring business books - it reads like a novel.  In it, Dobbs provides a step-by-step guide to improving the internal structure of any organization.  Effective and common sense how-to advice is supported with concrete examples of the principles at work.  His leadership insights will help sharpen the skills of beginning entrepreneurs as well as veteran moguls.
His twenty-five years in leadership positions and extensive CEO experience at three companies makes Randy Dobbs a true leadership expert.  As CEO of GE Capital, IT Solutions, he was awarded General Electric’s Turnaround Business of the Year Award.  Now the secrets of a successful executive are compiled into a readable, practical guide for all types of leaders.  Transformational Leadership is available at local bookstores, Amazon, and other online bookstores.

My take on the Book
Doing what I do for a living, I read a lot of leadership books. Some are good books and some are great books. This book is one that I would call great! Mr. Dobbs does a wonderful job at taking a subject and really making it come alive. Transformational Leadership is a topic that you are starting to hear more and more about today, and this book makes that change both tangible and possible. One thing that I really appreciated about the book was that it gives down to earth examples of what you can do to make sustainable change within an organization that will definitely remain in place for years to come. 

If you are a leader in today's society, then this book is one that you should have in your collection as it will definitely give you the tools to make you succeed in any change effort you are attempting. 

If this book sounds like one you would like in your own collection, you can find it on Amazon!
