With three graduate degrees in leadership and management, I really enjoy reading books on those subjects and “Leadership Soup” by Kamran Akbarzadeh didn’t disappoint. Sure, there are a lot of books on leadership out there and a lot of research, but it is how the author presents the information that is going to make the difference. Akbarzadeh has created a unique way to present this information to either the novice reader on the topic or the well-read scholar. Not really intending to make a pun, but “Leadership Soup” is a book that is easily digestible for any reader and its simple yet important principles can be readily applied.
The author explains that leadership isn’t necessarily about a big office, a big title, or the accompanying salary and lifestyle. Leadership is about instilling a mission and sense of purpose, both in ourselves as well as in others. His passion is for people to use their own passions and serve others by developing their leadership skills. He compares “Leadership Soup” to our eating chicken soup when we are sick in an effort to be well again to using his principles to get a healthier outcome in life and in business. He defines authentic leadership as guiding others with sincerity and setting directions with integrity. That is definitely a recipe for success. He attacks the debate of whether leaders are born or made, confesses that leaders aren’t perfect, and talks about the need for leaders to be proactive. This is a good book for business students, managers, and business leaders.
