5Excellent Read
By Angela R.
I have never read a more thorough book on leadership. I was especially impressed with the authors use of the SOM (self-organizing map) to produce the eight models of As One behavior; which were...

1. Landlord & Tenants

2. Community Organizer Volunteers

3. Conductor & Orchestra

4. Producer & Creative Team

5. General & Soldiers

6. Architect & Builders

7. Captain and Sports Team

8. Senator & Citizens

Furthermore, each model was carefully explained with examples and descriptions of six key characteristics that made each type distinct from the others. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking to understand leadership better and to hone his or her own leadership skills.

Even someone new to leadership could benefit from As One. It's written in a way that offers clear insight into the many forms of leadership and what they can accomplish when organization wide cooperation is achieved. This is laid out in eight chapters on eight different archetypes of leadership. At the end of each chapter there are poignant questions and information gathering tools that will help determine which archetype is the best for you to follow. Not only does this book clearly help you pick a default archetype to adhere to in order to reach your desired goals, it also goes so far as to suggest a secondary leadership archetype to follow for specific priorities that are not covered by the default archetype.

5Personal Reflection
By Row
While reading this book I saw some key flaws in the leadership style that the organization I work for is implementing. The product we manufacture is based purely on creativity. It requires creative minded people and creative solutions constantly. However, it seems we have adopted the General & Soldiers leadership style in chapter five instead of the Producer& Creative Team in chapter four. I can see the reason for this is because we greatly desire "efficiency and fast deployment", however it seems to falter because of discrepancies over who is really in charge and tends to leave our creative minds feeling rushed and accomplishments seem to go unacknowledged. This breaks down not only the moral of our organization, but leaves us all struggling to reach goals we don't really feel are ours which steers us away from the collaborative effort that As One teaches. Hoping I can share these key concepts at work to revive our sense of teamwork and begin moving cohesively towards what we really desire.
