9781460932414: The Lion and the Guru: The Amazing Story of Becoming a Team Leader

The secrets of teamwork. What can we learn in the remote African savanna about teamwork? Can a lion teach us about leadership? The most useful lessons can arise in unusual places. During a safari in Africa, an executive suffers an accident and is forced to convalesce in a hospital. There he met an old man who offered to share his wisdom gathered in a series of stories about the ultimate leader, the African lion, and its interaction with other species of the animal kingdom. The various stories show why not all teams are equal and help us to visualize the most appropriate leadership strategies for each case. The Lion and The Guru states that the three axes that define a team are their skills, solidarity among its members and the acceptance of the leader. It teaches us that the greatest achievement of a leader is not to get people to follow him, but getting that people want to follow.

From the Back Cover:

"The author, through this ingenious fable refreshes us and forces us to review and consider whether we are acting correctly in each situation, and with a valuable pragmatic approach, offers it to us, veterans and newcomers in the art of directing an epilogue where he concludes and summarizes to offer us a tool to use regularly."
 Director - Securitas Direct
"During the reading of  The Lion and the Guru, at different times, you see a reflection of your work and personal life. No doubt after reading it, success in life or lack thereof is in everyone's hand."

Area Manager - Walt Disney Studio Motion Pictures

 
"It is a useful work both for executives and consultants and all professionals interested in developing their leadership skills. Daniel discusses the cornerstones of leadership, in a pleasant and easy to understand manner. He gives practical examples that make viewing basic concepts, which because they are simple, are not less important."

HR Portugal & Greece -  Cisco

"This book provides the reader a fun way to learn, from animal behavior, leadership skills, structured on a conceptual model that is easy to apply. Learn to lead any kind of animal you find in your office."

HR Manager - Uralita
 

"This original work invites us to travel across the world of people discovering that volume units are physical quantities that we have to overcome since the dimensions of the individual are unlimited and there is always room for improvement, learning and getting ahead."
