nkwbookreviewer4 Stars Out Of 5Great Leadership ToolJanuary 28, 2017nkwbookreviewerQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 48 Steps to Achieve Your Destiny is a 176 page book by author Samuel. Chand. This small but mighty leadership book is published by Whitaker House. Author Chand uses experience and personal, true stories in his book to aid leaders in learning how to better achieve their destiny.
His book is divided into eight topics to assist leaders. These topics are: New People (identifying characteristics and learning how to work with them), New Pains (change makes it, embrace it), New Places (where you wish to go and how you will get there), New Perspectives (new ways to see things and find mentors), New Priorities (defining how to reach your goal), New Passions (excitement as things change), New Preparations (habits and skills), and New Possibilities (risks and opportunities). Each chapter focuses on a new change that leaders face. Using encouraging, realistic suggestion, author Chand offers ways leaders can benefit and move forward through change. At the end of each chapter are "Teaching Points" and illustrations.
This book would be good for not just leaders but those working on a committee or dealing with change. Sensible advice is offered to help cope with and deal with change. It is written to be easily understood. The author has a nice writing style. He has researched and organized the book well. He talks about relying on God. It is a nice leadership book.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a book on leadership or help with change. I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars.
I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review.
Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Must read book for those in leadershipDecember 15, 2016Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Using a wealth of examples gleaned from today's a'top organizations, DR. Samuel R. Chand lays a solid foundation to prepare today's leaders for the unavoidable difficulties. Whether you run a corporation, a non-profit organization, or a church, 8 Steps to Achieve Your Destiny will provide insight into eight issues every leader must face.
In this book the author writes about the importance of the people you work with That those you have worked with in the past are not the ones that will be good for your future. He talks about the importance of having positive people, people who will help you grow and those that will grow with you.
He writes about the places our future will take us. As humans we cling to the familiar, but with God's help we strive for the unfamiliar. It is in the unfamiliar that we learn to trust God and have faith in him. To have growth we must walk in the unfamiliar. The author points that for some people that being left in the familiar too long will lead them to becoming bored and restless. These gifted visionaries need to move on.
Each time we respond to a new possibility, new doors open for us. Our attitude and thinking changes. He also walks us through the importance of personal preparedness for growth. But not everything about growth is easy. There will be pain, there will be criticism from others.
When I was asked to read this book, I did not realize that it would become a book that would help me with my growth. As a volunteer of many different programs, most in the leadership capacity, I have had to step back and take a look at what direction my future holds. This book has been very helpful during this time. As I step away from programs that I have been with for a long time or those that are very near and dear to my heart, I have felt extreme pain. But through this book I have come to realize this is the way it should be. That to have stayed in those positions I would have grown frustrated. The hardest thing for me when moving forward has been leaving the people what I have worked with. And with this book, I see that is also normal That I will now be involved with a whole new group of people who will help me grow even more.
I really was helped a lot by reading this book. It helped reaffirm to me that the changes I am making in my volunteer life are doors that God are closing and opening for me. Some of them not always what I thought would happen. If you are in a leadership position and are feeling frustrated, bored and felling there is something else out there for you, this is a must read book!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Book Club Network. This is my honest review.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Encouraging and sensible leadership insightsNovember 2, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4If you are a leader, you will face difficulties. Chand offers insights on leadership he has gathered over the years.
He highlights eight topics. New People (identifying characteristics and dealing with them), New Pains (change creates it so get used to it and embrace it), New Places (where you want to go and how you'll get there), New Perspectives (new ways to see and finding mentors), New Priorities (defining steps to reach your goal), New Passions (rediscovering excitement as life changes), New Preparations (daily habits and skills), New Possibilities (embrace the risks and opportunities).
Chand says the biggest challenge for leaders is within them their perceptions and attitudes. He provides insights on how to overcome roadblocks and find new ways to respond to people and situations. He includes good suggestions. He also gives great examples where leaders capitalized on ideas like he presents as well as others who totally missed it.
There is nothing in this book that will shake the leadership culture. Chand give sensible and inspiring suggestions. This would be a good book for any leader to read either as encouragement or a review of current leadership practices. Chand includes Teaching Points at the end of each chapter, as well as visuals, so this book could be used in leading a seminar or other group session.
