A couple of words on The Leader Who Had No Title book by Robin Sharma
I’ve been familiar with Robin Sharma’s work for more than a decade and I managed to meet him (for a couple of seconds) when he held a seminar in my home country, along with Richard Branson.
I didn’t attend that seminar, but I heard a funny story about the Jaguar car company CEO from my country (who sponsored the event) who, at the end of the event, on the stage with a crow consisted of more than 4000 people, asked Richard Branson to name a couple of characteristics of the Jaguar car, or something similar. His replay was something like I don’t know because I don’t drive expensive cars. Ups…
I receive a book as a gift/suggestion from my boss later last year and after finishing up some of the books that I was reading (what, you don’t read several books in the same time?) I decided to take this one next. Although I was familiar with Robin’s work and was subscribed to his newsletter for several years, I never really read any of his books.
I was immediately captivated by the story. The fact that he has chosen to tell a story through characters was the first thing that caught my attention. As we will find throughout the events, that main character can be anyone of us.
Because we all need to be aware of our potential. In whatever place life might find us at any given moment. Period.
This book involves some acronyms, so, I won’t consider this a spoiler or any copyright infringement. I write some of the acronyms down for myself (I choose to do it publicly than on my notebook).
And, also to be an incentive for whoever lands on my blog here, to pick up the book and read it. It’s a pleasure doing it.
And that, I cannot write here and spoil the joy.
