"The past ten days have become the most rewarding of my 3 year stint at my employer. Ever since I read from your book, and then went to lunch with my department heads. They have started to open up. Especially the British guy, as he realized I am here to help him being a better manager, pointing out the issues that exist. And for the first time they started listening, and they have started to change things for the better.
You know, it was the very first time somebody had the courage to speak up and speak to them, instead of simply speaking behind their backs. The things you have mentioned in the book are what leadership is all about; it touched them..some were rather uncomfortable, some others have become more open for constructive criticism.
I learned so much in the past ten day and how people tick. Some managers are so scared that they try to please everybody...some people are so intelligent that they hide their big heart underneath it as you have mentioned in the book. Thank you for writing Love Leadership."
