I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a job. Period. It’s not just for those who own or run companies. Piyush Patel has written a treasure chest of advice to do better in your job, or how you run your company, or how to deal with other people. His writing style is clear and concise. He provides plenty of personal stories and anecdotes to show how he applied the philosophy he discusses.
The thing I liked most about this book is that Mr. Patel actually did everything he discusses. He is not putting forth some hippie/granola formula for success that has never been tested. I could tell from the first chapter of this book that he truly cared about his employees and believes that you lead by example. If more corporate and business heads led their companies like he led his, there would be less turnover and more happy employees.
Having been an employee who has left jobs because of managers (not because of the job), I really appreciate the concepts he discusses. If I ever am in a position to lead a group of people, I will implement these tools. I am even going to implement some of these tools in the next class I teach, as I think they will also translate to the classroom.
This book does something crucial for me-it puts employees first. Over money. Over product. Over customers. There is no way Mr. Patel could have built a company that sold for $45 million dollars if these tools did not work.
I won this book from Goodreads and received no other compensation for my review. The opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone. Another reason I loved this book, it was inscribed to me personally – another indicator that Mr. Patel walks the walk.
