ذكرني بكتاب من الذي حرك قطعة الجبن الخاصة بي؟
في المجمل هو كتاب ممتع وسهل القراءة عبارة عن حكاية رمزية طريفة تلقي الضوء على حاجة المؤسسات والشركات إلى قادة يظهرون نزاهتهم وصدقهم، ويهيئون ظروفا تسودها ثقافة المشاركة، ويؤكدون شعور مرؤوسيهم بتقدير الذات بإعلامهم بمدى أهمية ما يقومون به. ويؤكد الكتاب أنك عندما تنسجم مع ما يريده الموظفون حقا، فبإمكانك أن تتفوق في الأداء على الآخرين.
الوصفة الفعالة للقيادة المؤثرة وهي ما سماه المؤلف بالمزيج السري تتكون من: الاستقامة، المشاركة والإقرار بالإنجاز

Shelves: business
There are several business books in this style that are outstanding. This one is just a 'me too'. Using the same story format to bring home lessons but not doing it with any real depth. The story line isn't interesting. The people are not relatable. The advice is solid. But it is kind of 'cliff notes' to business advice.

It's a nice and short book. Easy to understand but I think it would be better if the auther could let me know why the "leadership pill" could help some leaders run their business better when they took the pill.
Yep, it was one of the should read book.

The author Ken Blanchard, in this book, writes in a contemporary fiction style. The author has explained his Secret Blend of Leadership composed of Integrity, Partnership and Affirmation.

I love informational books written as a parable ;) The key points are fabulous - this would be a good read for anyone who works with others, in any field - you don't need to be a manger to benefit. Super easy to read - I had it done in one sitting.

The book name attracts a bit and then the statement "leadership qualities are increased using the Leadership pill". That gives some interest about what is in the pill. But after sometime, it is stated that the pill is defective. Here the story turns to a different set. The Effective leader turns to a pill free challenge and then he starts on that by his own way.

Book is about how to maintain motivation by being a leader. As most of the reviews the book is about how a manager have to be with his

The Leadership Pill: The Missing Ingredient in Motivating People Today (2003), Ken Blanchard, Mike Muchnick

The Leadership Pill is a quick read in the form of a metaphor. In it, Blanchard and Muchnick contrast two styles of leadership by giving one group a special leadership pill. The story is slightly redundant in making the distinction between the two leadership styles found in the two groups and is a little corny with the "pill". Basically, it boils down to what I call the "old" versus "new" m

This is a 3.5 stars, but there is no such score here... I like most of the books by Blanchard - The one minute manager, the one minute manager meets the monkey and this one have pretty much the same style, they are easy and fun to read, and they emphasize important aspects of management. The Leadership Pill is a quick read in the form of a metaphor. The leadership pill helps by increasing the "leadership" of whom taking it - the person becomes more focused on the goal, and runs a team effectivel ...more
