Book Review - Leadership by Choice

About the Book
How many of us have the desire and hope to live and lead a better life? Most of us do. All too often our choices are rushed and relationships are strained by not improving the four areas of our life. Eric Papp believes that leadership is a choice – a free decision everyone can make to see themselves as leaders, role models and people of positive influence.

Receiving rave reviews, Eric’s new book Leadership by Choice-Increasing Influence and Effectiveness through Self-Management (John Wiley and Sons), is a practical, entertaining, and fun book that is loaded with actionable strategies and compelling ideas that act as a road map for anyone wanting to live and lead a richer life.

Featured in the New York Times, USA Today, and many other publications, Eric was voted in the top one-percent of management trainers in 2010. He is a recognized expert who has a desire for improving personal and organizational leadership.

We are all responsible for our own productivity. To be an effective leader, our challenge is to find creative ways to get more done in less time and have a clear understanding of our priorities. In Leadership by Choice, author Eric Papp looks at new strategies for leaders to excel, not just through smarts but connecting with others and establishing effective communication skills. The best leaders lead with passion and touch everyone they encounter.

About the Author
Eric Papp develops leaders in organizations through keynote speaking, management training and consulting. He has delivered more than 400 professional training programs to corporate and private clients.

My Take on the Book
If you are a manager or a person who uses leadership to influence others, this is a great book that will give you some valuable insight and resources that will enable you to better accomplish the tasks that you have before you. What was great about this book was that the author seems to be speaking directly to you, and because of this it is like having a one-on-one leadership consultation versus simply a book that you read. There are so many great ideas shared in this book that can be used in many different settings. The chapters are short and practical and you can take one chapter at a time or plow through the whole book in no time. This is a great book that I will highly recommend to all!
