Leadership is an Art by Max DePree

Upon the recommendation of a respected leader, I picked up two books from Max DePree, Leadership Jazz and Leadership is an Art. I decided to read Jazz first and I really enjoyed that book. It made me excited for Art. However, my expectations may have been a bit too high.

Leadership is an Art is a fine book on leadership. The message is authentic and great, but in the end, the book was rather forgettable. Nothing stood out to me. Perhaps if I read this book first and Jazz second, I would be writing a more positive review.

So, in my opinion, I would tell someone to read Leadership Jazz over this book.
