Pepper brings a pragmatic approach to leadership coaching through his experience and wisdom. His approach to Common Sense Wisdom is truly valuable and actionable for today’s leaders. I look forward to putting his latest advice to good use with my leadership team.
I had the opportunity to hear Pepper speak not too long ago and very soon I realized that my mind began to work in parallel; I listened to what he said and, at the same time struggled with taking notes of all my own ideas and thoughts that were triggered by what he was saying. To me, this is the ultimate measurement of a good speaker; a person who makes me start to think and create my own ideas and reflections while I am listening. It is the same with his books; my mind begins to think in parallel, sometime so much that I have to go back and read it all again.
Pepper has spent his life listening, observing and recording the traits of successful leaders. This book records, in his very easy to read style, his valuable findings about the key qualities and self-awareness that successful leaders share. Common Sense is a huge part of getting things right in business and that is what this book is all about.
This book is a must read. As always, the beauty of de Callier's insightful and practical approach is illuminated by the simplicity of his insights and the clarity of his advice.
