The man was pulled away, but King insisted on talking to him privately, and he refused to press charges. As a journalist, he has a suitcase full of stories about leaders who successfully walked the walk, and as a result made significant changes in their environments. The stories were fun, and included tales that ranged from Eleanor Roosevelt to Jeff Bezos of Amazon, and a host of others. Reading these stories was the best part of the book.

Gore lost leadership opportunities by living in a house four times the size of an average American house, which gave the impression that changes in lifestyle were important for other people but not for him. Gore since these inconvenient inconsistencies were made public.

Sadly, the book is long on stories and short on guidance that might help beleaguered leaders more effectively walk the walk. For example, the Coca-Cola Company in set out a vision of five goals: Bush were completely uncalled for, off message, irrelevant, and inaccurate. And that's leaving aside completely his abject idolatry of Barack Obama, also inappropriate in this book.

Invoking political leaders in the context of a book on business leadership like this is appropriate, certainly, but they should be pulled from history, as the preceding pages did: Churchill, FDR, Eisenhower, et al. Leave the contemporary politics out of it. I couldn't put it down and would recommend it to any friend. The anti "do as I say, not as I do". If you consider yourself a leader worth following, this audio book is certainly worth a listen.

"Walk The Walk" by Alan Deutschman Book Review

As soon as your example and actions don't match your words your credibility as a leader is diminished regardless of your title. Here are six important take-aways from Walk the Walk.


  1. Toleration and Its Limits: NOMOS XLVIII (Nomos (Hardcover)).
  2. 2013...So NOW What?.
  3. Under the Influence: The Fine Art of Ken OToole (Fine Art Books from Dallas Fort Worth Artists Book 4).

For a leader every moment is a teachable moment for the rest of the organization. A lot of leaders practice lemmingship rather than leadership because their actions don't match the values the speak.

Walk the Walk

John Keegan" It is not enough to depend on reports or information provided by those directly working for you. You must periodically go, see and be an example at the working level. Even though a lot of us know the fundamental truths of leadership it is easy to slowly drift away from those truths. This book is a good refresher to remind you of sticking to the fundamental truth of leading by example.

Walk the Walk: The #1 Rule for Real Leaders: Alan Deutschman: licapedu.tk: Books

This book is worth your time because of the stories and illustrations used to drive the points home and I found it worthy enough to send copies to my clients. This book was on the recommended reading list of our CEO and it's a good one. It's a quick read with a lot of good examples of known leaders living the example they expect and how that makes all the difference in the culture of a company.

Audio CD Verified Purchase. This is a great book. It hits home for so many of us who have seen Directors spouting off about their company's "core values" while their actions demonstrate another, loathsome side of their character. A classic example would be the head of a corporation bragging about never laying off a single person in their company's history; but then, at the first sign of financial crisis, start laying off disillusioned employees in droves.

How's that for building morale with the remaining employees? Loved "Walk the Walk. And my rating would have been five stars if I'd stopped reading at page It was after that, in the Afterword, that Deutschman completely lost me. It was as though I were at a Diana Krall concert and, when she came back on stage for an encore, did a Karen Carpenter number.
