"I LOVE IT! Some leadership books are too flowery and not very practical. Some are all meat and too long and detailed. Some are all workbook and too intense. "Golden Nuggets of Leadership is the perfect mix. It is the type of book that I can take on a plane and read thoroughly, or sit at my desk and work through the activities. It provides enough meat that you have to think about it, but it is not overwhelming.
I love how the recommended qualities, competencies and leadership nuggets are outlined then followed by extensive detail on each. The real life examples of the right way/wrong way to say/do something and the activities are also very helpful. And you really pegged the section on effective communication. It surprisingly made me think about how I can improve my styles even in my personal life. It is a fast, easy read that provides excellent practical advice.
Overall, this is an excellent book and I can't recall reading a book quite like this. It has a lot of elements in it that other authors have touched on, buy I believe Dena brought them together very nicely."

"Golden Nuggets of Leadership is very straightforward and easy to navigate. The nuggets themselves tap into what we all know to be needed, but aren't necessarily practicing on a day -to-day basis. I like the exercises; they complement the nuggets with qick and easy tasks to get people to think and act. Most definitely, I am a target user of the book!"
