This is yet another "let's tell a fable" book. In this case the fable is predictable, stereotypical and tedious. The language and tone of the book is elementary, and in some cases 'dumbed down.' The book focuses on 13 key points to managing (yes, it is heavy on management, and light on leadership) and engaging a departmental work force. The points are framed around three key ideas, each with four sub-headings: give direction, motivate and organize the department. The 13th point is that character is important. For a new manager this might be of interest or entertainment. However, for anyone with more experience than their first front line supervisor role, this is a repeat of some really basic stuff (e.g., not everyone is going to agree with the new ideas, get the committed people and early adopters on your side, motivate with positive reinforcement rather than the threat of negative consequences). By page 50 or earlier the fable got in the way, and it was a real chore to slog thru to the end. If someone gives or requires you to read this book, suggest you flip to the back section, review the summary of the 13 points and get on with your work! At best, marginally worth the investment of time and money.

From the very beginning, Clint Swindall's Engaged Leadership gives the reader a choice: Do you want to learn fable-style or narrative-style. I was hooked. First because there are few good business fables out there and second because not everyone wants the story, some of us just want the facts. And, given the choice, I actually read both. And, as a result, I learned even more!

On to the substance: Leadership is more than just misunderstood. It's hard, really hard. Swindall's approach creates a visual and useful picture on how to be better at it. This book was so powerful that I sent it to all my clients - people with whom I've worked in the corporate and professional talent management/development industry.

If you want to strengthen your leadership skills, read this book.

Clint has few rivals in his ability to convey wisdom. I was really looking forward to reading his book. Engaged leadership is a wonderful read. Clint took a dual approach providing a leadership fable at the start and a more logical step wise model at the end. In both cases he was able to convey a powerful yet elegantly simple model of leadership. Based on the Q12 model of the Gallop organization Clint conveyed a number of excellent elements how managers can create a team that will outperform their disengaged uninspired counterparts. I found this to be an excellent hands on compliment to the Gallop model. I wonder when the field guide will come out.

It is very frustrating to waste money on "leadership" books which don't tell you how to DO anything, or showcase examples that can only be used at a huge international company or small mom and pop shop. Engaged leadership is the ticket. It uses two formats to relay the same information - story and text book. Which is an example of the flexibility of the information given and the implementation. From the very beginning it offers suggestions for things that ANYONE can try to engage their employees. I shared it with our Executive Director and it become a mandatory reading for all "Managers" without our organization. I have even shared it with some of our vendors. Uniformly positive feedback. Not a waste of time.

Clint has a gem here for those who seek direction on how to change the climate of their work teams. It is an ABC's of leadership in an easy to read, highly understandable format. The brilliance of composing the book in two styles, one in Fable form for interaction and one in how-to format for quick reference, made it a book that I will keep within arm's reach. I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to all who are looking for the proper sequence in which to change their climate. I am a district sales coordinator with Aflac and plan to share this amazing book with my peers.

As an MBA student looking for sources for a research paper, this book was very helpful. He explains the concept using a story and also explains it with a detailed plan, therefore, he makes it relatable and easy to understand!

I purchased the book for my Management team after reading it. One of the few books that uses a fable/story to get the message across rather than just examples. I recommend to anybody challenged with a disengaged culture or one that could become disengaged if the right things are done up front.
The book arrived when we needed it to. Damaged bosses loaned copy title of book indicated we had to replace
