Prepared Leader

We are all leaders in our own way. Egmond and Welter provide a practical yet challenging path to help us take this learned skill to the next level. A good read for those willing to reflect upon and challenge their own leadership style with the thought that some new thinking might make them more effective.

Thought provoking and a real call to action!

I enjoyed the book, both for the insight it provided and the way that questions were asked. This style forced me to think about the issues and reflect on their meaning to my business life. This is a great book to take on your next airline will make the time go by quickly.

Here's Something New

Most corporate training teaches you what to think. This book teaches you how to think. And how important a skill it is these days, with change coming at breakneck speed and uncertainty at a decades-long high. Above all, "The Prepared Mind" outlines a systematic approach to thinking, even with regard to such seemingly unsystematic activites like imagining. The book is chock-full of theoretical principles and insights, so, unless you have a background in educational theory and psychology, don't expect to breeze through it and magically turn yourself into a Prepared Mind leader. This is information that should be absorbed slowly and reflectively. I found it very helpful to pause often and remember situations where the thinking principles really applied. Bottom line: Opportunities are hard to come by these days. A leaders who is prepared will find them and organize his/her company to exploit them.
