    Amazon Exclusive: A Note to Readers from Author Robin Sharma

    Thank you for the opportunity to share a little about The Leader Who Had No Title: A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and in Life. First, the book is the result of the 15 years I've spent as a leadership advisor to many of the FORTUNE 500 companies, including FedEx, Nike, Microsoft, GE, IBM, and organizations like Yale University and Young Presidents Organization--as well as to many über successful entrepreneurs. I mention that so that you know the book is built around real-world insights, lessons and tactics that the best quietly use to win in business (and within their personal lives). If you're at a point where you are ready for extraordinary performance, exceptional leadership and to play full out with your life, this book will be highly helpful to you.

    Second, the book is written as a story-with a group of unforgettable characters that bring the whole Lead Without a Title process to life. The goal was to write a book that not only is full of powerful success tactics to become your leadership best but also one that entertains and deeply inspires. In this way, all the learning is sticky--and therefore valuable to you.

    Finally, this book is really about not only the opportunity every human being has to show leadership (regardless of whether they have a title or not) but the responsibility we all have to work at our best potential--and make a difference in the lives of everyone around us in the process. Because the ultimate end-game of leadership isn't just positively influencing other people. It's transformation.

    Best,

    --Robin Sharma


    A Conversation with Author Robin Sharma

    Q: Is it really possible for anyone to be a leader?

    A: Absolutely. The core message of The Leader Who Had No Title is that every single one of us has the opportunity to show leadership in our work and within our lives--every single day. This isn't some motivational platitude. It's a reality that i've helped everyday people in organizations like Microsoft, GE, FedEx, Yale University and IBM achieve. Because leadership isn't really about the title on our business cards. Leadership is about the strength of our influence, our willingness to innovate, the quality of our attitide and our commitment to excellence. This doesn't mean that organizations should get rid of titles and structure. It simply means that leadership is a behavior--and anyone of us can show it.

    Q: This is obviously a time of deep change. Does the "Lead Without a Title" philosophy you share in your new book speak to this?

    A: Yes. The #1 competitive advantage any organization has right now is growing the leadership potential of EVERY employee, at all levels. From the mailroom to the boardroom, the companies that will win in these highly uncertain times will be those that get people Leading Without a Title. To succeed in this economy, the best organizations will encourage their people to think, feel and behave like leaders, delivering wow results within their work.

    Q: So the nature of leadership is changing?

    A: The old model of leadership is dead. Everyone's now a part of the leadership team. And each of us has the responsibility of driving positive results and leading by example. It's now Leadership 2.0. Everybody gets to show their leadership best when they walk in the front door every day. The Leader Who Had No Title shows you how.

    Q: Is leadership something we only show at work then?

    A: Leading Without a Title is actually a way to express your absolute best at work as well as at home. While the book is definitely for people who want to fly in their careers and win at work, there are some key ideas in the book on personal leadership, getting to peak health, balancing work and family and having a lot more fun on the journey of life.

    Q: Why this book and why now?

    A: Because we need real leaders. Companies that we used to believe in have gone bankrupt or been bailed out. Leaders we used to admire have lost face. We need to restore the leadership values that made us great. And it starts with every one of us leading ourselves. We all have that power. It's time to reconnect with it.

    • Good message, but dumbed-down.
      From Amazon

      The messages in the book are worthwhile but I do wish it was written above the 3rd grade level. It was overly repetitive and probably could have been an essay since there was not much literary style and the characters were rather unbelievable.

    • Leadership without a title
      From Amazon

      Robin Sharma's books are always inspirational and therefore valuable reading. I found this particular book a little repetitive. However, the message was good and the author used different avenues to make sure the reader really got the message. Therefore the book is a success. I found the poor editing a little disturbing, but I'm a grammarian, so what can I say! Others may not care!

    • A Waste of Money
      From Amazon

      Unfortunately, I skimmed the positive reviews prior to purchasing this book, but failed to read actual reviews by professional and independent book reviewers. The book is trite, repetitive and wholly uninteresting. I'm guessing there is a website where you can buy LWT necklaces and other LWT tchotchke. There is nothing original or profound or even useful in the book. It could have been written by a computer program and very likely was.

    • A let down after MONK
      From Amazon

      I was told about "The Monk who Sold his Ferrari" bought it and devoured it. Read it multiple times. Loved it. I was so excited when a new book came out by Sharma, and raced to buy it. I was really looking forward to it but unfortunately was sadly disappointed. The characters were shallow and unbelievable. I couldn't buy in to the story and the message seemed trite. It felt like the author was trying to duplicate his success with "Monk" but failed. Like a movie sequel that didn't quite have the magic of the original. Still love "Monk" and am reading it again to revive my respect for Sharma. Sorry. I wanted to like it.

    • Best Leadership Book Ever!
      From Amazon

      The Leader Who had No Title by far is the best leadership book I have read in the past 5 years. You will not be dissapointed because this book is not only a How-To book to superb leadership, but the leadership theory is crafted beautifully in a fictional setting that paints a vivid picture for the reader to easily follow. Enjoy!
