Publisher's Summary

It's a sad fact. You have to be bad at leading others before you can learn to be good at it. Sooner or later, every leader runs into a wall of incompetence, weakness, or hubris that Treasurer calls "the leadership kick in the ass". Do you derail or learn from scraping your knees?
Treasurer finds that the most difficult problem leaders face is finding the right midpoint between overconfidence and indecisiveness or weakness. Just about all leaders land on the wrong side of this tough balance at some point - and that's when they get their asses kicked. Although most leaders say it can be a very valuable experience, Steve Jobs, who definitely favored one side, famously said, "Getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to me." This book is a survival guide, coach, and morale booster to help the listener master the art of confident humility. If you succeed, the next place you get kicked might be upstairs.

Highly recommended.

An easy and entertaining learning experience. Much of its content was common sense but important to remember. A few words were mispronounced and a phrase or two was wrongly repeated but this did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the listening experience.
