“Leaders Create Space” has a 5.0-star rating on Amazon.com. Here’s what some people are saying:
“Steve clearly presents truths about business, people and life that should be internalized by leaders seeking higher effectiveness. His teachings are applicable in all relationships where behaviors are to be influenced. If your goal is improved performance, self confidence, and fulfillment, this is the book for you!”
– John H.
“Steve Laswell is on target throughout this book. His descriptions and stories about development is right on. Once leaders absorb that – as Steve puts it – “The business of business is PEOPLE” – our industries could change. Thanks for the great read.”
– Lucy Rice
“Leaders Create Space would be a great way for a management team to challenge itself, especially if it has new members or needs to solve a complex problem. My favorite part came near the end. Laswell explains how to use the big question words, then lists the four benefits of carefully framed questions: honoring the other person, slowing down the conversation, cooperation, and finally, improved performance. To me, these benefits are hallmarks of mindfulness. The purpose of this book is to help leaders coach themselves and their direct reports toward co-excellence by “asking more, telling less, and teaching when they must.”
“In Leaders Create Space, Steve Laswell encourages leaders to lift their heads from the jobs and responsibilities that make them so busy (creating space) to look ahead to the leader they can and should become (create clarity). And, maybe more powerfully, Steve shares a model for leading others to do the same.”
