Book summary of a 60 second leadership

When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new - Dalai Lama
People talk too much!! And on top of that, they ask very little. And when they do ask, its usually a setup for them to talk more.

We can all relate to what the author is saying. We can see that both in our personal and professional life.

If we analyze and be aware of ourself we do these often. Many times we fall under the same category.

Stephen Covey nailed it in his quote

"Most people do not listen with the intent to understand, they listen with the intent to reply" 


Key Lesson:- Listen with your eyes while you talk I.e. be aware of the interest level of people. Ask questions. Learn from them.


Conclusion:- Be the listener, not the talker. Leave people wanting more, not wanting out. Listeners is the one who shows value and people move to where they feel valued.

In this chapter, the author talks about Communication in a different way.
According to the author its, not the words that really communicate the message.

Learning to understand the behaviour is a true way of communication.

We tend to speak and act on the basis of our way of communicating, rather than considering that others are attempting the same thing but, communicating in their way and if we don't learn their ways, we will miss them all day long.

Understanding is the foundation of great communication.

Once we get our heart and head in the right perspective than we can use methods or tools such as DiSC or MBTI.

Here the author talks about tools he used which help him to define the behaviour style of people. To know more about this tool please read the book.

Key Lesson:- Author encourages us to learn more, understand more and apply more in the area of communication.Use tools such as DiSC or MBTI to understand behaviour assessment. Get this knowledge and apply it in your life.

Hello, readers🙋 Welcome back to the Bookodidact🙏 Here is another summary of the chapter. Enjoy 😉

12. Quiet Leadership

Book summary of a, book summary, book chapter summary, libro, livro ,kitap

Looking at the title I remembered another book named "Quiet" by Susain Cain. In that book, she talks about the power of introvert and how that can be used for leadership.

The starting of the book is quite amazing where Susain talks about a lady well known as Rosa Parks who started the civil right movement and then carried forward by Martin Luther King Jr. The amazing part of the story is that Mrs Parks was so quiet and calm lady who stood as a leader among the masses in spite of her introverted nature. 

I recommend you all to go read that book and you will never look at leadership in the same manner.

So, today's chapter resembles with the book. Here the author talks about how leaders can come into different shapes and sizes.

He talks about his wife who stood as a leader and the amazing part is she doesn't call herself one.

Society tends to portray leaders as outgoing, driven, strong and decisive. It is certainly true in many cases. These type of leader is so visible and we think that's all leader is.

But, have we thought about leaders who don't see themselves and not do they want to. These are the quiet ones that aren't interested in the limelight and yet their sense of responsibility and respect they have with their peers and vision often lead them front.

To know more on this topic read "The Leader Who Had No Title" by Robin Sharma.

Key Lesson:- Leadership is Influence and influence is not limited to the outgoing(personality). It is about respect from those around us and respect has to be earned. That respect gets people's attention.


Conclusion:- Leadership is not about a title. Leaders can come from all walk of life, different shapes and sizes. Leadership is about influence and it comes from respect which gets people's attention.

11. Presentation Ain't as Important as Follow Through

Book summary of a 60 second leadership

The title itself reveals what this chapter is all about. In this chapter, the author talks about the importance of follow through. The word usually used in sales which many people know about. 

Let's see what he is trying to tell.

We always see it in sales, the imaginative memorable proposal that amazes the potential buyers. Full of imagination, creativity all kind of stuff.

The author doesn't know how these proposals work out in long run but his sales approach was typically boring. 

Just pick up the phone and call. He was passionate and committed but most important he always follows through, nurturing that relationship. 

Nurturing the relationship(follows through)work in both personal and professional life. Here is an example.

Personal Life:- Marriage is all about nurturing the relationship. Staying consistent with small stuff in marriage such as giving detailed attention to your loved ones, be engaged with them, show them love and respect.

Professional Life:- Sales is all about nurturing the relationship. Keep in touch, add value, follow through your words, courteous and respectful.

Key Lesson:- It's ok to wow everyone with your way of presentation but makes sure you still pay attention to the small stuff by keeping your words and promises. Be consistent with providing value.


Conclusion:- Nurture the relationship. Don't regret the small stuff as in long run they will help you in many ways. Keep your promises.


So, how diligent are you with your follow through or are you more into presentation stuff??🤔😉

Book summary of a 60 second leadership


In this chapter, the author talks about the importance of preparation. 

Sometimes, we forget about these things while moving towards our goal. It's all about a detailed step, a strategy to move towards our goal.

Proper preparation is key. For some, it comes easily and for some it takes time. As we all know luck is the place where opportunity and preparation meet.

Many people so-called gurus(motivational speaker)just try to boost the confidence and enthusiasm of people in their seminar. They try to sell them on that concept.

But, they forget to teach the key ingredient of success i.e. planning. It is a strategy game that keeps you track of your goal and makes it a reality.

To give us the basic idea the author asks us few a questions.

Are we ready for the next sales call?

Did we build a plan for a successful today and tomorrow? 

Key Lesson:- We must schedule our time to plan and build an accountability system to execute on that plan. 


Conclusion:- Plan your work, then work your plan. Planning comes first then its time to execute.

So are you all about motivation or you plan your game so that you can be ahead of the majority. Remember it's all a strategy game.

8. People Math

Book summary of a 60 second leadership 

People Math???🤔

We all are familiar with Math aka Mathematics. For most of us, it is the scariest subject till today. Don't be embarrassed if you are one of them.

Even I have to figure out these subjects in my school year and truth to be told I was pretty bad with it. But I managed to make it work by trying harder and probably you did the same.

There are few individuals who love it. Some of them may be your friend or other famous personality such as "Grant Cardone" and "Patrick Bet David".

Do the Math Or Millionaire Math- Grant Cardone 

Life is all about Math - Patrick Bet David 

If you don't know them, I highly recommend you follow them great stuff to learn about the sales, entrepreneurship and personal development. Now, let's get back to the author version of math.

According to the author in our life, we come across different kind of people. He categorizes them as 

1) Adders  2) Subtractors 
 3) Dividers  4) Multiplier 

1) + :- These are the people who add value. They enhance the relationship and helps in improving the team performance by working with others.

2) - :-  These are the people who only see negative. They always point out what's wrong in the situation. These are the people who take away from every relationship, though it's usually not intentional.

3) ÷ :-  These are the people similar to subtractor but, these people do it intentionally usually for their selfish needs.

4) × :-  These are the people who not only grow relationship but, they also grow others who in turn grow the team and relationships. They help in enhancing positive change and growth even when they are not around.


Key Lessons:- Here the author encourages us to become a multiplier in peoples life by nurturing and growing your relationship with them.


Conclusion:- Become a multiplier and help others grow and evolve with you. 

Avoid negative( subtractor, dividers). Beware of such personality.

So, now let me ask you.
Which personality describe you the best ?? 😉
