by Jim Clemmer
Review by C.S. Clarke, Ph.D.
Like his prior book Growing The Distance, Jim Clemmer's Leader's Digest is a sampler of high impact ideas. Each chapter (or article) is attractively packaged as a brief essay within apt anecdotes and quotations.
In marketing there is a saying that you sell the
sizzle, not the steak. Jim Clemmer sells the rich, savory steak surrounded by the sizzle.
Many of Clemmer's ideas are classic B-School. Many are recognizable from the pop-psych realm. All are uniquely restated in forms that make them quickly and easily accessible to even the beginning leader. And motivationally rejuvenating to the old pros.
You don't read this author's books: you visit and revisit them like wise old friends.
