This short leadership book covers topics ranging from personality styles (how some rub people the wrong way) to communication (which almost always goes wrong) and lack of common sense ( which is actually a set of learned skills; put your judgment away). Chapter 10 is an "Acting Lesson" that challenges you to change. This thought-provoking book emphasizes that you must shut up and listen to be a leader people will follow.
Also available in Spanish (A lo hecho, pecho. Sé un líder que los demás seguirán).
Being relatable and understanding others is what leadership is all about. Enjoy the short leadership book, it is straight-forward and humorous. Wendy Sellers is an author, HR expert, speaker, and HR consultant who is known as The HR Lady - and is often heard saying "Suck It Up, Buttercup." The phrase has taken a whole new meaning. In the past, it was directed at what she believed were inept employees. Now it is directed at the true root cause: leaders who are unwilling to consider others' ideas or perceptions.

I would recommend this to all no matter what type of leadership role you are in. It was an eye opening concept. - Craig C.
I enjoyed reading this management book. Very insightful with a little bit of humor. Made me realize that I am fortunate to work for a great company/people (leaders) that follow this philosophy.
I love Wendy's no-nonsense approach to management. I can see where I have fallen on both sides of the spectrum and the impact it had on employees. Thanks for keeping it real. - Anna T
