Praise for The Six Attributes of a Leadership Mindset
Joe Britto has written an easy to follow and “ready for use” personal and professional development map that is a valuable resource for leaders, managers, and HR practitioners. What I find inspiring about the book is that it does not advocate one particular approach or recipe to leadership but rather allows the reader to create their own path to leadership. Joe’s ability to speak in simple yet powerful language, filling the scene with vivid stories and catchy characters, allows us to draw insight from each page. Each chapter has neatly worked out challenges to help practically apply each attribute. As the author tells us, we are free to choose the attribute to focus on. The most appealing one for me was creating leaders: “A chance to help others become leaders” and it’s what I am definitely starting to explore right away.

Joe has successfully pulled out six attributes of a leadership mindset that can be developed by first understanding what they really mean and then by practising their underlying behaviours. The Six Attributes of a Leadership Mindset is one of the few development books that will sit next to me on my desk and serve as a working reference and reminder of things to practise on a daily basis.

I must admit that I am not a keen reader of books on leadership, yet I found myself totally immersed in The Six Attributes of a Leadership Mindset. The book’s content is not only grounded in solid research and the author’s rich experience, but is also brought to life with inspiring stories and practical exercises. In a refreshingly humble, thoughtful, and humorous style The Six Attributes of a Leadership Mindset is a very useful companion for leaders.

Joe Britto has provided an intriguing and exciting new dimension to the journey of leadership. In a wonderfully structured, powerfully reasoned and convincingly developed framework he brings the attributes of a leadership mindset alive. The insight, clarity, applied stories and challenges within this book provide an accessible foundation of opportunity to every reader. It goes beyond business and challenges our mindset to get more from work and life in a refreshingly easy to follow flow. The Six Attributes of a Leadership Mindset should be a compulsory handbook for all those in or aspiring to any leadership role.
