5Buy it and keep it on your desk!
By Ed O'Malley
Allen and Kusy have created an easy to read, quick reference guide to developing leadership among your staff and colleagues. It's not a theory book. It is an action book. These 50 ideas are quick to grasp and implement. You need this book if you have the drive, passion and interest in truly developing leadership throughout your organization. Highlights of the book for me include: "Ask the Tough Questions," "Conduct a Quick Case Study," "Get out in the Field" and "Transfer School Work Back to Your Work." Too many leadership books are intellectually interesting, but leave you wanting when it comes to how to apply the ideas. This book will get your mind spinning intellectually AND help you put the ideas into practice right away. It's a great read and a must have!

The Little Book of Leadership offers practical, well researched advice. The book is a great read for both new and more seasoned leaders. It's easy to read all at once but is also a great quick reference for specific concepts.

This book will definitely be one of my go to references for leadership development.
