If you know me at all, you know that I’m a sucker for a good deal. My husband is *constantly* telling me to stop spending money, but that’s only because he doesn’t understand the power of a good sale.
Either way, when I saw the book How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge by Clay Scroggins on sale as an Audible Daily Deal, I knew I’d struck gold. Seriously, never underestimate the power of an Audible Daily Deal!
I actually just finished listening to the book this morning, and I was not disappointed in the least. While I was surprised to find the book had a lot of Christian undertones (I clearly didn’t read too much of the summary before making the purchase), I was surprised at how much solid advice Scroggins really had to offer. I’ve always considered myself more of an “informal leader”; someone who leads by example rather than by title or authority. Though I’m comfortable with the type of leader (and person) that I am, I’ve been told that I need to speak up more in meetings and have more of a take-charge attitude. However, as someone who prides myself on being an active listener and having an open mind, I’ve struggled with playing a more vocal role in leadership.
After reading/listening to this book, I’ve realized that even though my leadership style is unique to me, there are still better ways to lead from my seat at the table. I definitely recommend this book, and know that if you give it a chance, you’ll walk away with many lessons learned and a new perspective on what leadership means to you.
