I really enjoyed Lolly Daskal's book I have been reading her articles and blog posts on Twitter for years and was excited about reading The Leadership Gap I was not disappointed She goes into the seven leadership archetypes and their corresponding evil twins which she calls Leadership Gaps Rebel vs ImposterExplorer vs ExploiterTruth Teller vs DeceiverHero vs fearful BystanderInventor vs DestroyerNavigator vs FixerKnight vs MercenaryLolly uses her experience as an executive coach to thousands of CEO's around the world to then explain how you can overcome your leadership gaps Many leadership books talk about what you should do to become a leader but few talk about what you should avoid such as your leadership gaps Lolly does both to help you change and reach your greatnessIf you pre order the book from Lolly Daskal's website wwwTheLeadershipGapbookcom you will also receive a free leadership gap assessment Now I think I will read it one timeI received an advanced copy free for an honest and fair review I have read this book and I must say that the best evidence that The Leadership Gap is a great book is that I see myself so clearly in its pages I also see other leaders I know but the most significant thing is that I see myself in the book I also see ways that I can fix areas that have been hindering my growth as a leader The book helps you understand yourself The book exposes your weak areas but also provides you with a path forward to bridge the gap between what you are and what you should be Lolly has provided an extraordinary resource for leaders Preorder a copy at wwwtheleadershipgapbookcom Just finished reading 'The Leadership Gap What Gets Between You and Your Greatness' 2017 by Lolly Daskal I usually try to avoid business books because of fatigue most of them reiterate the same points and thus many are becoming redundant But seeing how this particular book is highly rated on and Goodreads and widely praised by other authors I decided to give this one a tryDaskal is a leadership consultant who draws inspiration from figures such as Viktor Frankl Carl Jung and Sun Tzu Her book 'The Leadership Gap' is the result of her experience in teaching leaders in various industries and she combines it with the lessons she learned mostly from the three figures above to form a rough framework to identify the different kinds of leaders and their negative respective counterparts In fact that's what caught my attention at first her idea that there are different archetypes of positive leaders such as Rebel Knight and Hero and respective negative counterparts reminds me of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator MBTI a comprehensive popular but debatable framework for identifying and understanding different personalitiesUnfortunately her framework is anything but comprehensive Whilst it's interesting to read the different archetypes at first it gradually becomes hazy How is the Mercenary self serving that different from the Fixer arrogant? How is the Hero courageous that different from the Rebel confident? In fact how are the archetypes and their negative counterparts even related? How is the Exploiter the opposite of the the Explorer wouldn't it be appropriate for it to be the opposite of the Inventor instead?The different archetypes seem obvious at first but after reading the explanation they seem to be nothing than arbitrary labels In fact the author could've swapped all the archetype names around and I wouldn't think they would be that inappropriate for any result It's not a framework at all; they're just nice names attached to certain ualities of an ideal leader of which is not distinctive from one another Her explanation for what makes a good leader regardless of the archetype is straightforward though mundane The funny and perhaps disappointing is the crux of the book is succinctly summed up in the epilogue which I think is the only essential reference readers would need to understand this bookThe author's writing on some selected leader archetypes such as Dr Bennet Omalu and Chef Ono Jiro is interesting to read and her writing is very concise and easy to read But that's about it; her contents are run of the mill and her leadership archetypes are random and meaningless There's nothing really interesting this book offers that teaches readers how to be good leaders; they're all have been mentioned by other books before it I'm disappointed though not surprised by Daskal's book but at least readers can easily finished reading her book even in just one seating I really enjoyed this book a lot It reminded me of Tom Kelley's The Ten Faces of Innovation where Lolly outlines 7 leadership archetypes and their leadership gaps You'll likely find yourself in then one of these archetypes at a time or perhaps fluctuating between them Lolly gives you clear guidance in how these archetypes can help your leadership style and gives clear warnings showing where each style's weaknesses are A recommended read for anyone in a leadership position—official or unofficial This book has given me some clear ways to improve as a leader and also helped me appreciate the style of other leaders where I may have easily discounted their style if it was unlike my own This book has some gems But I felt that the thinking could have been clearer I thot some of the achetypes and their shadows were kinda massaged to fit into the mould But having said that some were indeed insightful The leadership framework Lolly presents in this book really brought to life the strengths and weaknesses anyone has experienced trying to lead other people I’m clear than ever on what I need to improve about myself to reach my full potential easier said than done but I’m confident now having read Lolly’s advice Here’s why I recommend giving this a read1 All leaders face similar challenges Whether you’re leading a small church group run your department at work or lead a Fortune 100 business you’ve got undeniable strengths and weaknesses to be aware of The weaknesses are your leadership gaps as Lolly calls them are directly connected to what makes you a successful leader The framework for identifying what you have and what you lack as a leader is universal as Lolly has spent one on one time with all different types of leaders and chronicled the patterns she’s seen first hand 2 There’s useful theory in the book about why leaders act they way they do but most importantly her suggestions are actionable The multitude of examples of all different types of leaders in the book bring life to each aspect of her framework Learning how others have triumphed and failed due to their strengths and weaknesses as leaders makes her advice accessible3 I greatly appreciated the simplicity and clarity of the writing used throughout out Lolly’s book too I’m uickly turned off by business jargon buzzwords and overly academic language which was not the case with this read I’m a fan of conversational books like Lolly’s where the word choice and sentence structure is focused on driving home the point of an argument in a smooth and concise way It was clear from the beginning that it was Lolly’s goal to keep her advice and the leadership framework simple and easy to rememberIf you’re looking to improve as a manager politician supervisor business owner executive or otherwise than I highly recommend picking up a copy of the Leadership Gap Lolly Daskal has an interesting and insightful system of how we lead and the gaps associated with our strongest leadership styles I now see how I tend to slide into particular gaps during challenging times I never looked at these archetypes in this way before and it makes me realize there is yin and yang in each one; and awareness is key for me to be better today than I was yesterday I have read a preview copy and can see how this book can help everyone grow and become a better person no matter what they do in life I have also noticed how some great leaders got caught in their gap and without awareness fell from glory This book has the power to get you to your greatness if you are willing and open to really look at yourself deeply The Leadership Gap is a fantastic read and a great reference for anyone in leadership I especially appreciated how the author highlights each gap and gives clear examples of areas where leaders can focus their efforts to make huge improvements in their leadership abilities As a management consultant leadership coach primarily as it relates to software development the information in this book is very relevant to my work and I will be referencing it regularly in the future Must read for leaders and aspiring leadersThis is such a practical honest and informative look at leadership Daskal's compassionate no nonsense approach is very readable yet calls you to take action if you really want to be a leader I appreciated the archetype approach and now have some clear action items for myself to focus on If you are ready to take your leadership to the next level this book needs to be in your library or on your e reader The leadership gapGreat approach to know the strengths and weaknesses in my leadership clear profound and innovative concepts on the 7 archetypes of leadership that anyone displays at certain moments in life Lolly is a master in debriefing some of the best concepts on psychology applied to leadership from Carl Jung and Victor FranklGreat read for Coaching
