Book Review: You Don't Need A Title To Be A Leader

Mark Sanborn brings us real life examples of how ordinary people are very much extraordinary when you see them through the eyes of those around them. We see how inspirational, your average Joe or Jane really can when they go the distance every day. This books is full of great ideas and tips to help every individual find ways to effectively manage their time, to spread encouragement to their team members and to become an inspiration and a leader to those around them, whether given an official title or not. "If you're like me, you do fifty, seventy-five, or even a hundred different things a day. The dilemma is that only a few of those activities really count for much." Sanborn reminds the reader to take  few moments and ask if an appointment, meeting or schedule blocking is really going to add value to your schedule or not. I must say, I found the lighthearted real life stories to be pleasant and uplifting. I definitely ended this book feeling like I have been a leader without a title myself.
