The secret is that all great leaders serve. After Debbie learns the secret she still doesn’t know what to do next. I am an avid fan of Ken Blanchard and company

The secret is that all great leaders serve. Jeff explains that great leaders serve in at least five ways. I am an avid fan of Ken Blanchard and company. The Secret is no exception. Mr. Blanchard and team capture both the mind and heart of the reader, right out the gate.

Jeff gives Debbie his secrets to becoming a successful leader. He teaches Debbie the SERVE model. He asks Debbie several direction questions about her self and team. Debbie's homework assignment is to answer those questions and bring the answers with her at their next meeting. Serve stands for: 1)See the future - where are you going with your team. 2)Engage others and develop them - Assign the right people to the right jobs and help them to smooth out their rough edges. 3)Reinvent Continuously - Continue to learn

Written by the legendary bestselling author Ken Blanchard, The Secret .The secret of great leaders is that they serve others; they listen well, they look for opportunities to act and serve. A good point to instill in the minds of leaders is this: A person can serve without leading, but a leader can’t lead well without serving. May 26, 2019 Michael rated it liked it.

The book was a business fable told through the eyes of Debbie Brewster. What is above the water line is what you can see in people. This is the doing part of leadership. The little things that are demonstrated by the actions of leaders.

The Secret answers the question, ""What do I need to do to be a great leader?"" Books on leadership abound, and most of them emphasize one or another of the ideas explored here. But only The Secret pulls all of the five essential concepts together into a coherent plan for achieving leadership success.The core idea, based on the authors' years of experience and drawn from examples of the best leaders, is that leadership comes from service. The five ways in which leaders can succeed through service are seeing and shaping the future; engaging and developing others; reinventing continuously; valuing results and relationships; and embodying the values. Each strategy is explained in detail, with exercises and tips for integrating them into the leadership matrix.The Secret is not dry dogma; the authors show their ideas at work by following the example of a struggling leader who enrolls in a mentoring program at her company. It traces her progress in understanding and applying these concepts, and her subsequent transformation into a respected and effective leader.
Hilarious Kangaroo
Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller’s 10th Anniversary edition of The Secret is definitely not meant to be kept to yourself!

An updated version of their classic business fable, The Secret captivates the reader through an intriguing narrative centered around the simple but profound secret: “great leaders serve.”

Some of my earliest professional training was based on the writings of Ken Blanchard, and his works continue to both line my shelf and inform my leadership activities.

In much the same way, for the past few years Mark Miller’s writings have been an influential factor in my ongoing leadership development.

With The Secret, the authors have once again crafted a learning device that is not only a pleasure to read but filled with practical helps applicable from the volunteer team leader to the C-suite. In addition to these helps, the self-assessment included at the end of the book is a quick, useful tool to use at both the beginning and end of any mentoring or leadership development program.

Your continual journey as a developing leader developing others will benefit greatly from practicing the “secrets” from The Secret.
A pretty good illustration of the importance of the Servant Leadership model in management. The writing style verges on being trite and cliche at times, but the book provides a realy good example of how the Servant Leadership model in implemented in practice and whatthat looks like in a company.
An easy read with a simple and straightforward message. I have read many self-help to management type books from my graduate school days to running various companies and never have found a more clear way to present its message! I plan to have all my five children read and study this book as a new step to being a good leader willing to serve others.
This book presents a host of beneficial concepts and techniques for use in many different arenas and scenarios. I highly recommend it to any company desiring to improve the profits and/or integrity of their company.
I'm the CEO of a midsize organization, and I am just sorry I didn't find this book 15 years ago. Many (most) books on leadership are a series of platitudes and anecdotes. This is much different, a simple, straightforward and logical approach to being a leader and developing leadership. So much of this is in alignment with what I've learned over my 30 year business career, but it's articulated in a very concise and impactful format. I highly recommend this book.
Think of this book as a narrative version of "Management 101." It narrates the short story of a poor manager becoming a good leader through a series of mentoring lessons. Great principles for the new manager to take to heart, and the easy-read format means that it's good for slower readers or for group reading and discussion.
Worth it to jump to the summary at the end which wraps up the wonderful concepts in a nutshell. Prose and style in delivering content via story form is good, but the meat and potatoes are at then end and summarized and would be wonderful hand outs an print outs to share with an organization looking for fresh ideas.
This book is my favorite book on leadership.
I shared it with multiple people and they all like to too.
This book is an excellent resource for anyone who needs to supervise and lead others.
I even use some of the principles listed in this book get my kids to do what they need to be doing.
