What a wonderful interview with a fascinating man and prolific author. Robin Sharma has just released his new book entitled, “The Leader Who Had No Title”.
This is a fable in which Robin eloquently weaves into the storyline the advice of a character by the name of Tommy Flinn to our main character Blake Davis about important lessons in life and leadership. Robin’s message of “The Leader Who Had No Title” is very timely considering the major challenges our world is facing, and many examples we can pluck out of the news about leaders who have fallen from their so called thrones due to indiscretions or lack of integrity.
Robins main message revolves around the fact that everyone is a leader, we all have roles of leadership at work, home and or community. We need not play down our roles as leaders but embrace the good that we do as a result of our leadership roles. Robin tells that that we have just entered what he calls, “The Decade of Leadership”. Leadership has become democratized, we don’t have to be executives to be leaders.
Robin articulates what he refers to as nine smart moves you can make today to start changing the game and create exceptional results:
1) Remember You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Leader
2) Shift form Victimhood to Leadership
3) Innovate or Stagnate
4) Become a Value Creator Versus a Clock Watcher
5) Put People First
6) Remember that Tough Times Build Strong Leaders
7) Go to Your Limits
8) Leader Yourself First
9) Give Back a Legacy.
I highly recommend this great fable with a wonderful message about how we are all leaders, and we are now living in a age where we all need to step up and become leaders in our own right. This book is loaded with wonderful advice and practical actions we can take to become the best leaders we are capable of.
