Guiding readers not only in mentoring others but also in building one's own leadership skills, Harkavy, CEO and "head coach" of Building Champions International, draws on years of experience mentoring clients in business and in their lives as a whole. The most successful sections of the book deal with less traditional business subjects, such as seeing the big picture of your own life and developing vision and mission. Though Harkavy's clients often want him to simply fix their business problems, the book's central section emphasizes the importance of a holistic approach. He walks the reader through a strategic progression, from "finding your life" to refining your business vision and business plan. The most concrete section is on priority management, where Harkavy teaches his readers to stop reacting to the issues in their lives and focus on proactively accomplishing their goals. Using a handy Daily Routine Time Blocking Schedule, Harkavy teaches readers to divide up their day so that they're always maximizing their time on high-value activities. While the introductory section of this book occasionally slips into the abstract, the latter half provides enough concrete tools to make this book worthwhile. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
