Overview
In business today, there is no offline and there is no downtime. Professionals are both exhausted and depleted. Being constantly tethered to our work through technology makes us overwhelmed and shortsighted, and deprives us of time for meaningful reflection or thoughtful connection to our professional communities, and often even to our own families. For us to thrive-not simply survive-in this accelerating economy, we need to adopt small, intentional behaviors and practice them each day. From simply taking care of our rest and exercise to building our self-confidence and embracing challenges, author Shawn Hunter's latest book Small Acts of Leadership will guide you through a series of incremental steps you can take to build a stronger version of yourself and make a broader impact in the world. Weaving in personal life stories and meaningful interviews with business leaders around the world, Hunter presents the reader with twelve critical competencies that are consistently present in the daily behaviors of today's most successful leaders.

In his thoughtful but unwieldy latest work, entrepreneur Hunter (Out-Think) presents 12 critical competencies intended to help readers become more successful leaders, asserting that the key is “small, incremental steps taken each day.” Drawing on interviews, personal experience, and research, the author offers lessons on such traits as grit, kindness, and resilience from a diverse array of individuals, including athletes, academics, and authors. He adds business relevance through references to and quotes from corporate leaders at companies like Merck, Schering-Plough, and Ingram Micro. Throughout, the author introduces a wide variety of helpful concepts in short nuggets of helpful advice and insights, many of which can be implemented in the small steps he describes. However, the sheer volume of ideas and concepts in each chapter becomes overwhelming. While the sourcing of scholarly research is helpful, the work often feels like one academic name-drop after another, and is too dense to easily digest or focus on. For readers who can absorb the tips in small chunks, the ideas may be helpful. Agent: Lisa DiMona, Writers House. (Oct.)
