Book Summary of Top Ten Ways To Be A Great Leader by Hans Finzel


Some people think good leadership comes naturally. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Most people can describe experiences with a poor leader, but how many can truly say they have been under great leadership?

We’ve all seen examples of poor leadership. Some of us are poor leaders ourselves. Others of us have been growing and thriving as leaders and want to continue to grow. Regardless of where we are on the continuum, growth should be the priority of every leader.

If leaders need to learn one simple thing, it’s this: “don’t do what comes naturally” (p. 15). Humans are self-centered by nature, and selfishness leads to disastrous leadership. Truth be told, “there are more bad leaders out there than good ones” (p. 16).

Why is this the case? Generally, there aren’t very many good leadership role models. Even the best leaders have had to learn from numerous mistakes.

At the core of great leadership is acknowledging the influence a leader has. Whether positively or negatively, a leader’s actions influence others, and this warrants careful consideration and deliberate action.
