David Novak learned long ago that you can't lead a great organization of any size without getting your people aligned, enthusiastic, and focused relentlessly on the mission. But how do you do that? There are countless leadership books, but how many will actually help a Taco Bell shift manager, a Fortune 500 CEO, a new entrepreneur, or anyone in between? Over his 15 years at Yum! Brands, Novak has developed a trademarked program he calls Taking People with You. He spends several weeks each year personally teaching it to thousands of managers around the world. He convinces them that they'll never make big things happen until they learn how to get people on their side. No skill in business is more important. And Yum!'s extraordinary success (at least 13 percent growth for each of the last nine years) proves his point. Novak knows that managers don't need leadership platitudes or business school theories. So he cuts right to the chase with a step-by- step guide to setting big goals, getting people to work together, blowing past your targets, and celebrating after you shock the skeptics. And then doing it again and again until consistent excellence becomes a core element of your culture. This audiobook has specific tools at the end of each chapter that will challenge you to reflect on how you're really doing on key aspects of leadership. And if you apply it, you'll immediately start to improve.
"This is the best, most practical hands-on book on leadership I've ever read. If you apply these principles, your career and the people you work with will flourish." (Dr. Bob Rotell, a sports psychologist)

I would like to recommend this book... but can't.
I have no idea... perhaps someone who has not read many popular books on management.
Probably - I am pleased with the success of the Authors company, but the narrative was the same one I have read in countless other books of the same genus; Gee aren't we cool?! We just figured out if we work together with the idiots that report to us, we can actually do better as a company... I am sooo clever. In a future book, the Author will explain how he cleverly skirted US tax laws by moving the company HQ off-shore... or did they already? Please.
He was fine.
Hard to say... I probably would have removed the words and replaced them with pretty pictures.... there would be more value added.
I think I nailed it.
Almost very good
For an audiobook, the exercises at the end of each chapter should be available for download. I have seen this with other books and it is very helpful, especially if the intention is to learn and do. I listen in the car usually and not having a document to work off of later is a loss.
Good story with good examples.
