4.0 out of 5 stars Leadership from the Inside Out: Grow the Person to Grow the Leader March 23 2009
By Robert D. Shull - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would recommend Leadership from the Inside Out by Kevin Cashman. The major theme of this book is authentic leadership and in its pages, Cashman provides many opportunities for the reader to learn and grow personally and as a leader. Cashman argues that to develop as a leader, one must focus on whole-person development and offers many suggestions on how to accomplish this.

The book is well-grounded in research. Cashman uses a mix of practitioner resources (i.e. Training & Development magazine) and academic articles (i.e. from the Center for Creative Leadership) alongside his personal and professional experiences. This combination of sources lends credibility to the book, although sometimes it makes the reading a bit awkward.

The one major complaint I have about the book is that it introduces you to a topic, but doesn't point you in the direction to learn more. For example, Cashman suggests meditation as a means of controlling stress, but he doesn't suggest resources on meditation or tell the reader where they might learn and practice meditation.

The book is meant to be read slowly. Throughout, Cashman includes quotes from famous and important leaders that are meant to provoke thoughts. He also includes reflections at critical points in the book and at the end of each chapter. From the beginning, he encourages the reader not to read straight through, but to put down the book when an idea strikes and explore it.

This is an excellent book for the reader wanting to learn more about himself or wanting to learn more about authentic leadership. I would caution against using this book in isolation. When ideas or suggestions pique your interest, it would be helpful to have access to other resources on the subjects. All-in-all it is definitely worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Taken with a grain of salt; quite a bit sweeter than I thought April 13 2014
By Mark Wilkerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Leadership from the Inside Out is a book that I was expected to read for a graduate-level class on Educational Leadership. After the first few pages, I was turned off by the "meta-talk;" I am naturally weary of self-help gurus who name drop celebrities who they have helped to transform the lives of, and I was quick to dismiss Cashman as "one of those people."

However, a few chapters in, about the point where Cashman speaks of "leading authentically," I knew that there was something in this book original enough and, well, authentic enough, for me to benefit from and apply to the leadership roles I currently occupy.

This is a book in which you get what you give; that is, Cashman gives ample opportunities for the reader to stop and perform a task of some sort; whether it is to take an inventory of your strengths and weaknesses or goals, or take a moment to self-reflect, these exercises may prove helpful for you. Plus, Cashman mentions many resources for readers to gain more insight into certain leadership theories or programs, so again, that may be beneficial for some.

If, however, you view this book or the wisdom Cashman wishes to provide with skepticism, then there is not much this book can provide. I felt the same as these skeptics, and certainly, some of the exercises he asks of the reader were not for me, and I feel Cashman would be okay with that. However, there is something here for you too, I am sure.

Especially like books that have you focusing on yourself rather than cry about how bad everyone else is. Great ideas on how to get focused and how to develop character in order to become a good leader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, A Must Read! Oct. 19 2012
By lindsaynoelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely AMAZING! I purchased it because I needed a book about leadership for one of my classes and it looked like a quick read... I was right about it being a quick read but I keep finding myself rereading, and underlining in it! I am learning so much and can't put it down! I honestly I was going to relate to it (as a 20 year old college student) but I really am and have suggested it to over 10 people already. BUT THIS BOOK! It will change your thinking and your leadership style! :)
