Unleashed Leadership is a go-to resource for those looking for leadership 'inspiration'. As Dan says in his book "it's one thing to inspire yourself. It's quite another to inspire others." Dan's book is a great roadmap for taking charge of your life and your career and becoming the leader you envision becoming. Pick out any chapter and learn something about yourself and what you need to do to unleash your own 'significant' leadership.
This book is...about unleashing your inherent leadership capabilities to realize your full potential and ultimately the potential of the teams that you lead. Unleashed Leadership is a whimsical, clearly written guide with YOU as the project – it's about working on yourself and growing your capabilities.
Dan follows his own advice by giving us a management book full of memorable stories and practical guidance that will no doubt stand the test of time. Whether you are a manager of people, a sports coach or a parent trying to raise teenagers, you won't want to miss any of Dan or Captain Jack's great insights. Who knew a Jack Russell could be so darn smart?! A must read for anyone that has a passion for being the best that they can be.
This book grabbed me right from the start. This is a solid book. It's very pragmatic, useful, and super fun to read. You'll feel like you're sitting in a bar having a conversation with Dan while he coaches you on becoming a better leader, and a better business professional. But more generally, a better person ready to unleash yourself through the open gates.
If you want to enrich your life and grow your career, Unleashed Leadership is an essential guide for executives, entrepreneurs, and most business people. Dan Weedin is a knowledgeable voice in the world of leadership literature, and gives you concrete strategies to take your career to the next level. It'll show you the skills and behaviors necessary for success.
Consultants bring a unique perspective to questions about leadership, and Dan Weedin is no exception. This up-close, in-the-trenches account lets readers know what Dan has seen, and in some cases, caused to happen, in a variety of businesses. Those who see leadership as a burden should skip this book. But for those who want to reframe leadership responsibilities and leverage opportunities, this is a "must" for their office bookshelves.
Unleashed Leadership is a real find! Dan gives practical solutions to real business challenges. He writes in an enjoyable, storytelling manner that has a way of hitting the bulls eye on the problems leaders face. Dan prepares you for what’s coming as a leader and gives practical tools to keep you on track. One of my favorite books on leadership and managing ourselves and others.
Dan’s book Unleashed Leadership was very valuable to me as a small business owner. The book helped me with dealing with those stresses more effectively. He reminded me of those important aspects of managing employees that were forgotten. Specifically, he offered easy to implement tools and techniques for working with employees help set back on track that which had gone off course. I recommend it for any business owner.
