The book is divided into three sections: preparing yourself for the job, getting hired for the job, and succeeding at the job. The sections are further divided into chapters, and then the chapters are divided into very clear and succinct snippets of advice. So in Section 1, you learn how important it is to make decisions faster, build relationships through everyday routine, and be reliable. In Section 2, you learn to use disasters to your advantage, make yourself visible to the right people, and make yourself memorable. In Section 3, you learn how to troubleshoot common issues, build the right team, and manage your time and energy in the most efficient way possible.
There are so many tidbits that I found useful in this book. I really liked the section in the beginning about common misconceptions about CEOs (No, they aren't all extroverted. No, they weren't destined for greatness from a young age. No, they don't all come from Ivy League schools.) I liked the section on giving an effective apology. I was surprised by how important reliability is; even when CEOs didn't get something right, just showing up day in, day out helped them be good leaders. I was comforted by the fact that so many successful CEOs have NOT gotten everything right the first time around. Many have faced disasters and responded poorly, but then learned from the experience and grown stronger. Persistence and reliability seem to go a long way in leadership roles...
In short, I loved this book. It's engaging and very useful, even to people not in the business world.
As a person who reads a lot of self-help, leadership, and management books, I found this to be in the top tier. It added a number of very helpful ideas that I haven't seen elsewhere. I especially liked the "leadership types" or "leadership styles" discussed in the book. Including: The Seagull leader, The Fireman leader, The Dilettante leader, The Hothead leader, The Sky's the Limit leader, The Lean, Mean, Operational Machine leader, The ER Doctor leader, and The Safe Pair of Hands leader--each with examples, explanation, and how to work with each. Very good leadership book.
Like The Millionaire Next Door book of the last generation, this book helps the reader see and overcome many of current myths associated with the pop culture view of leadership--and focus on developing the skills needed to be the real thing. Highly recommend.
Excellent books that are a lot like this include Dealing with Difficult People,The Effective Executive, and The E-Myth (Michael Gerber). The best of these IMO is Dealing With Difficult People, with The CEO Next Door as a close second.
