"Jeff Wolf, in his new book Seven Disciplines of a Leader,
has given us a comprehensive list of the many ways that the aspiring or
current manager can sharpen his leadership skills in order to be able
to compete effectively in today's challenging business environment. He
covers a lot of ground, but running throughout his work is a much-needed
emphasis on the importance of clear and pervasive communication from
the highest corporate level to the inner workings of the smallest team.
As he makes clear, failure to communicate clearly and accurately will
doom even the brightest of leaders. If the reader only learned this one
lesson, it would make the book most worthwhile, but of course, it
contains so much more."
