Awesome, interesting and inspiring book!!!

the book is written like a novel and as you read and see the Debbie character in the book who has challenges of leading her team and is trying to find solutions to be a good leader for her team.
as you read the book you will learn many things and you will be inspired from the coach Jeff who is mentoring her and as well as you will be motivated from the way she is learning and implementing the Serve model of leadership.

Marvelous!!!
The Secret is one of the best books I have ever read in leadership.
The SERVE concept was awesome.
An appreciable and creative work by Mr. Ken Blanchard and Mr. Mark Miller!
Vision, People, Improvement, Success, and Credibility are the 5 keywords focus of the book.
I sincerely recommend this book to all those who want to be a serving leader, not a self-serving leader.
