Hmmm. I listened to this one on audio. It covers a lot of basic ideas and might be useful for new managers.

Not a lot of groundbreaking new information here, but his seven steps can be applied if you have a leader who is struggling in a certain area. He has a companion website that goes along with the steps, and it felt like a big advertisement for it. Lots of anecdotal evidence of how his seven analogies can be applied in various situations.

Fuda outlines 7 metaphors for leadership skills and leadership transformation. He adopts a universalist approach in which he believes all leaders benefit from these seven skill sets. This is a similar approach to that adopted by Zenger and Folkman in their books 'The Extraordinary Leader' and 'The Inspirational Leader'.

The arts and science of transforming a leader

The material presented in this book is for leaders of corporations and large companies although the author claims that the principles (he calls them metaphors) will help leaders of small companies too.

The author of this book Dr. Peter Fuda did a excellent job bringing to fruition leadership and transforming it into something spectacular. The 7 metaphors-- fire, master chef, snowball, coach, Russian dolls, movie and mask were very engaging. This book used real life data, customers and stories to prove leadership can transform for the better.
Interesting bits about leadership transformations, but to me it feels the analogies are being force-fitted to anecdotes and then stretched beyond breaking point, with tenuous interdependencies that are left to the reader to find out. That may be an interesting workshop exercise, but it doesn't necessarily make for a compelling read.
