Product Description

Product Description

Although leadership is the hot topic on conference agendas and book tours, most people who find themselves in positions of leadership have little or no training for the role. They simply continue to make the same old mistakes.

With additional and newly updated material, this leadership classic reveals the most common errors that leaders consistently make-regardless of training or age-and the way to stop these bad habits from undermining their positive talents and accomplishments.

Whether you are leading a company, a ministry, a Girl Scout troop, or your family, The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make is a must-read for anyone who wants to lead others effectively.

"If you're like me, you've grown weary of the published cookie-cutter approaches on how to lead effectively. And so has Hans Finzel. He drills to the core of the current issues on effective leadership."?
-Charles R. Swindoll, author and president of Dallas Theological Seminary

"This is one of the most practical books on leadership I have in my own library. If you are serious about becoming a better leader, you will want to read this book."?
-John C. Maxwell, author, speaker, and founder of the INJOY Group

Format: Paperback
Finzel's book was written in '94, well before Kotter's "What Leaders Really Do" (written in '99) & Collins' "Good to Great" (written in '01). Finzel "outs" the most immediate perils to any leader's reign (top 10) & did so prior to the market research that Kotter & Collins offer. Kotter & Collins provide the data that supports Finzel's book, but Finzel's text is to the point & more eloquent. Pay special attention to mistakes #2 & 8. In today's corportae culture, not fitting the culture is a deal killer.

Do not be fooled by size or the title of this book. Small which makes for a quick read and an excellent reference guide. The points that are developed are not rocket science stuff but points that are faced regularly. I have been in leadership positions for over 30 years and truly enjoyed this style of writting. He points out the mistakes and before you know it you are on knees confessing that you have done the same. I especially liked the chapters on "Dirty Delegation" and how it takes the wind out of the sail from any project. Leaders make this error in the name of geting things done. Another favorite of mine is, "Communication Chaos". This sole, small, simple chapter has changed how we communicate in our corporation. More info, relevant info, important info; info; info and more info. This chapter alone has increased our atmosphere of teamwork and productivity. This is a must read for every executive in your company.

If you're any kind of church leader, you should read this book to give yourself the best chance of growing your people and/or organization. Not too long a read, do everyone on your team a favour, you will not regret it.
The beauty of this book is that you will find some chapters aren't useful because you're probably doing it anyway, but other chapters will be a revelation.
I'm convinced there is no such thing as a born leader - you have to learn how to do it - just like driving a car or playing a musical instrument. This book goes a long way to pointing out major pitfalls.

I found this bokk to be very helpful in many ways. It gave me insight into what motivates my young workers as well as a way to deal with some of the problems of the older more senior people. I found the advice very valuable in taking on a new position and dealing with the every day problems that cause major problems with any business.
