In the now classic business fable, The Secret, Debbie, a struggling leader finds herself about to lose her job due to poor performance. In a desperate attempt to save her career, she enrolls in a new mentoring program offered by her company. Much to her surprise, Debbie finds her mentor is the president of the company (Jeff Brown).

  • Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller’s 10th Anniversary edition of The Secret is definitely not meant to be kept to yourself!

    An updated version of their classic business fable, The Secret captivates the reader through an intriguing narrative centered around the simple but profound secret: “great leaders serve.”

    Some of my earliest professional training was based on the writings of Ken Blanchard, and his works continue to both line my shelf and inform my leadership activities.

    In much the same way, for the past few years Mark Miller’s writings have been an influential factor in my ongoing leadership development.

    With The Secret, the authors have once again crafted a learning device that is not only a pleasure to read but filled with practical helps applicable from the volunteer team leader to the C-suite. In addition to these helps, the self-assessment included at the end of the book is a quick, useful tool to use at both the beginning and end of any mentoring or leadership development program.

    Your continual journey as a developing leader developing others will benefit greatly from practicing the “secrets” from The Secret.

  • A pretty good illustration of the importance of the Servant Leadership model in management. The writing style verges on being trite and cliche at times, but the book provides a realy good example of how the Servant Leadership model in implemented in practice and whatthat looks like in a company.

  • An easy read with a simple and straightforward message. I have read many self-help to management type books from my graduate school days to running various companies and never have found a more clear way to present its message! I plan to have all my five children read and study this book as a new step to being a good leader willing to serve others.

  • This book presents a host of beneficial concepts and techniques for use in many different arenas and scenarios. I highly recommend it to any company desiring to improve the profits and/or integrity of their company.

  • I'm the CEO of a midsize organization, and I am just sorry I didn't find this book 15 years ago. Many (most) books on leadership are a series of platitudes and anecdotes. This is much different, a simple, straightforward and logical approach to being a leader and developing leadership. So much of this is in alignment with what I've learned over my 30 year business career, but it's articulated in a very concise and impactful format. I highly recommend this book.

  • Think of this book as a narrative version of "Management 101." It narrates the short story of a poor manager becoming a good leader through a series of mentoring lessons. Great principles for the new manager to take to heart, and the easy-read format means that it's good for slower readers or for group reading and discussion.

  • Worth it to jump to the summary at the end which wraps up the wonderful concepts in a nutshell. Prose and style in delivering content via story form is good, but the meat and potatoes are at then end and summarized and would be wonderful hand outs an print outs to share with an organization looking for fresh ideas.

  • This book is my favorite book on leadership.
    I shared it with multiple people and they all like to too.
    This book is an excellent resource for anyone who needs to supervise and lead others.
    I even use some of the principles listed in this book get my kids to do what they need to be doing.
