"Frank's skill in asking the right questions is un-mistakable, and is at the core of his leadership philosophy.

The power of these questions cannot be underestimated, especially if you want to lead and not manage."

"Managing in 2005 is very different than managing in 1995...."

Derek J. Kottke Managing in 2005 is very different than managing in 1995.

You are expected to do more with less; technology is part of managing, and people have more distractions at work (internet, cell phones, instant messaging). Frank takes a fresh look at how to manage and motivate teams.

"Frank is the master of asking questions. Frank will change you and make you grow,...."

Thomas PowerFrank is the master of asking questions. Frank will change you and make you grow, some of the change you will like, other parts you will not like. But change you he will and change is good, you can only grow from change, good or bad.

"Frank’s book, Stop Telling... Start Leading!, adds valuable intellectual real estate...."

Mark Amtower; Partner, Amtower & Company Frank’s book, Stop Telling... Start Leading!, adds valuable intellectual real estate to a field that is frequently populated by pontificators. Here we finally have a book that makes you stop, ask questions about yourself, your qualifications and habits as a manager and leader. Further, it makes you enumerate these qualifications and habits, thereby providing the basis for personal growth. None of us is as good as we want to believe and we only grow when we ask the right questions about ourselves, and then act on the true answers. My recommendation is not simply to buy this book, but to read and use this book regularly.

The author did a great job explaining what to do and HOW to do it.
It improved my own skills to train and guide employees on an individual basis. And that was beneficial to the whole company.
I highly recommend this book for anyone in a position of leadership, management and even employees with a vision.

"Questions...."

It is amazing how very simple Stop Telling Start Leading is to understand. The material is in no way inferior, but is presented in such a simple manner, you can read it in one sitting.

"Build Teams...."

(Full disclosure: this book contains a copy of the FunStandard.org which I maintain.) This book should be required reading for anyone thinking of managing or leading people, covering all the things you need to do to succeed, or, in other words, all of the things managers so often don’t think about resulting in unnecessary failure. I particularly liked the chapter on building teams, providing a framework for doing so to avoid a mistake that often dooms projects before the first meeting is even held -- haphazard assembly of individuals, mistaking "organization chart" for "team". This book’s distilled wisdom will make you a better manager in a very short time.

"A must have for your business library"

Stop Telling, Start Leading is a wonderful book, packed with sage advice, dispensed with a refreshing clarity and no nonsense delivery. Frank is a highly regarded international businessman and his experience leaps off every page.

The book is aimed at team players and organisations with more than one employee but even as a sole trader I still picked up some valuable tips and I liked the way the book is devised to be a work in progress book so you can write down your answers to Frank's questions, then when you pick the book up again, see whether/how the book has shaped your management style and the measures you might have put in train to manage your team differently. More importantly, has it changed your results?
