Imagine seeing all the thought bubbles that float above real business leaders’ heads constantly. The thoughts that are rarely shared, usually censored, but are the raw truth about leading people. And then, consider learning solutions to some of the most infuriating frustrations or as we call them - stupid human tricks. That’s what this audiobook is about.
Meet Micah and all the characters and adventures on their leadership journey. The characters will feel familiar to you. They are imperfect, with great strengths and painful flaws. Some learn from their mistakes, while others don’t. Some succeed, and others flame out. But all are perfectly, remarkably, ridiculously human.
The Messy Truth About Leading People is told in vignettes and are based on true stories. This book is real, it’s snarky, it’s compassionate...and there’s swearing. It’s a look at what leadership is.
You will walk away knowing that you are not as out of step as you thought you were. You will recognize yourself and others and how f--king hard it is to lead. Because, here’s the deal: Leading is about people, not things. And that’s the messy truth.
The Messy Truth About Leading People
I’ve been looking for a book that told the raw truth about leadership. Finally, Roth and Fenn Smith have satisfied my need. Told in vignettes, it is easy to relate to the experiences of the main character and all the others along their leadership journey. I recommend this book to people who aspire to be a leader and want to know more about the pitfalls. Young, diverse, females and those that simply don’t fit the mold will find meaningful wisdom.
Good book and enjoyed the narration. Will recommend to my boss.
