Publisher's Summary

Hacking Leadership is Mike Myatt's latest leadership book written for leaders at every level. Leadership isn't broken, but how it's currently being practiced certainly is. Everyone has blind spots. The purpose of Hacking Leadership is to equip leaders at every level with an actionable framework to identify blind spots and close leadership gaps. The bulk of the book is based on actionable, topical leadership and management hacks to bridge eleven gaps every business needs to cross in order to create a culture of leadership: Leadership, purpose, future, mediocrity, culture, talent, knowledge, innovation, expectation, complexity, and failure. Each chapter:


Gives listeners specific techniques to identify, understand, and most importantly, implement individual, team and organizational leadership hacks.
Addresses blind spots and leverage points most leaders and managers haven’t thought about, which left unaddressed, will adversely impact growth, development, and performance. All leaders have blind-spots (gaps), which often go undetected for years or decades, and sadly, even when identified the methods for dealing with them are outdated and ineffective – they need to be hacked.
Showcases case studies from the author’s consulting practice, serving as a confidant with more than 150 public company CEOs. Some of those corporate clients include: AT&T, Bank of America, Deloitte, EMC, Humana, IBM, JP Morgan Chase, Merrill Lynch, PepsiCo, and other leading global brands.
Hacking Leadership offers a fresh perspective that makes it easy for leaders to create a roadmap to identify, refine, develop, and achieve their leadership potential--and to create a more effective business that is financially solvent and professionally desirable.

What the Critics Say

"[Grove's] voice, phrasing, and can-do attitude are near perfect for this genre.... The ideas represent well-trodden topics in leadership education - topics worth hearing by any leader serious about professional growth. But with too many vacant-sounding generalizations, this book requires Grove's excellent performance to make it an accessible learning experience." (AudioFile)

Confirmation of leadership

If the book did not confirm your leadership values then it is the most important book you posses right now. I'm listening to it a second time right now incase my ego lied to me.

A great leadership book relevant to our time

Loved It because it sheds light on the things we as leaders need to be aware of, our potential blind spots. It didn't have quite as many concrete solutions or action steps to take as I would like but now I know of blind spots to research and learn more about. My eyes are opened. :)
