Book Review - A Leadership Carol: A Classic Tale for Modern Leaders

A Leadership Carol: A Classic Tale for Modern Leaders

About the Book
Ben Holiday inherited the leadership in his fourth-generation family business, but it wasn’t long before the business and Ben were in crisis. When Ben’s desperate efforts to turn things around fail, he receives some unexpected help in a most unusual manner, and comes to grips with his own leadership limitations as he seeks to save the company he loves. A Leadership Carol is a light-hearted adaptation of Dickens’ novel, A Christmas Carol, that teaches timeless and important leadership lessons for today. The leadership story remains the same from generation to generation, as imperfect men and women lead organizations that face constant pressures to change and adapt. A Leadership Carol is a tale of personal discovery and transformation, both of which are needed for companies and leaders to prosper and grow in the 21st century.

My Take on the Book
I have read a lot of leadership books and for me, one of the things that I look for are stories that you can relate to and this book does just that. While the book is short, you have an opportunity to see leadership from a different lens while you watch the character of Ben trying to save his family business. The concepts that are related in the story are timeless and in the end you really retain the learning (or at least I did). This is the type of book that would be a perfect gift to give to leaders in your own company that would encourage dialogue about what you can do to make changes that will really impact the organization.
