There are too many books on leadership and management that are excessively abstract. This book is a simple, pragmatic checklist approach to leadership written by a former U.S. Marine sergeant. Contrary to much of the published wisdom on leadership that what's important is connecting to people's emotions, what is truly necessary to accomplish any given task is to connect to people's skill sets. And the amazing reality is that people enjoy being recognized for their hard earned skills. Skip the memorization of family members names and pets and focus on the job. Everyone will be happier and you'll be a better leader.
