Format: Hardcover
Nine Minutes on Monday offer readers a practical plan for creating and sustaining work and business relationships in a world where people can feel isolated, disengaged and overlooked. What I LOVE about this book is its heart to encourage managers to lead by example, while supporting people to discover, develop and use their gifts to connect, grow and give.

I really enjoyed this book and gleaned so many great insights on how to manage others effectively. Being a simple person myself I like how the author breaks it down with straightforward points spiced with entertaining true stories to make the points come across personally. I would recommend this book to anyone who is in a managing role, leadership position, or just wants to know what effective leadership in our workplaces should mirror in our modern age.

Are you a mountain climber or a mountaineering guide? Oct. 5 2012
By L. David Marquet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Can you really be a better leader in just 9 minutes? That's the premise of James Robbins' new book, 9 Minutes on Monday.

Currently on Amazon there are 365,000 books in the leadership and management category. That's 1000 for every day of the year. Why should you care about another one?

James Robbins grew up at the base of the Canadian Rockies. Inspired by the mountains, he combined his love of climbing with his passion for people. Initially propelled to be a preacher, corporations became interested in his secular leadership seminars where he combined his honest, observation of the human condition with his experiences climbing mountains (both as mountaineer and guide). He has a program and now a book.

The title refers to a reflective and structured 9 minutes at the start of every week where leaders actively decide what actions they will take during the week when interacting with their subordinates. I like this approach, as it is habit-centric in that the focus is on the behavior.

Secondly, the content is good. Rife with mountain climbing stories, James deconstructs the elements of good leadership in today's world where thinking is the most important activity your people do.

James makes the case that humans, including you and your subordinates, are motivated by 4 primary and 5 secondary needs. The 4 primary needs are:
* Care
* Mastery
* Recognition
* Purpose

The 5 secondary needs are:
* Freedom
* Connect
* Play
* Model
* Grow

He has chapters for each of these needs and provides concrete behaviors for how to meet the need for yourself and your employees. Throughout the book are woven some more enduring themes such as trust.

I found the book helpful, practical, and coaching without pontificating. It's a welcome addition to any leadership library and would also serve as a supplemental text or workbook for organizations wanting to improve the leadership skills of their people.

A Feast of Leadership Principles Sept. 29 2012
By Scott R Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
James has captured something very special in this compelling treatment of leadership: a content and format that "sticks to the ribs." Like most of us, I've read dozens of leadership management books, and have managed to retain a very small part of them in my own leadership skill set. I am more ambitious with this book. James writes with clarity, focus, humor, humility, and with a sense of mission. I can feel his belief in this way of leading, and when I read, I even feel his belief in me, in us. I love the integration of clear principles, larger stories that cement unforgettable context, apt illustrations, and summations we can hold onto and truly practice, step by step over time. Guess what I've put into my weekly calendar now on Monday mornings? (At least for nine minutes)

Relatable and Actionable for Any Leader Sept. 27 2012
By RF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
James shares stories from a career in leadership that are easily relatable for anyone who has spent time managing or leading groups. His examples give a clear picture of what it looks like when leaders are focused on the most important aspects of there job: Getting great results from their people and taking their team up whatever mountain they face. His plan gives leaders time to focus on these things, and is simple enough that anyone can start putting it into practice immediately.

My organization treats Mondays as bad as any, and makes me think what great things could be possible if more leaders read and put into practice the principles James shares.

A Book for Everyday Sept. 26 2012
By Steven L. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've been waiting for this book. Seriously. I've heard Mr. Robbins speak and, well, I've heard a lot of people speak and forgotten everything they said. As a minister I'm either in front of an audience or sitting in an audience most of the time and the truth is more speakers are forgettable than not. But James Robbins is captivating and when he let me know his book was available I immediately sought it out and read it. I'd been hoping that the book would have the same feel as hearing the man talk in person and it does. James speaking appeals to me because he is an adventurer and the book has the same attraction and magnetism that I felt when he was talking about climbing mountains and guiding people to fulfill their dreams. Yes, it's a practical little manual on leadership and usefully laid out; but for me his stories are captivating, motivating and memorable and his contribution to the avalanche of "leader books" stands well above most anything else you can read. Not just for Monday, James Robbin's "Nine Minutes on Monday" is going to be good for all the rest of the days of the week as well.
