Reviewed by Astrid Iustulin for Readers' Favorite

We live in a world that changes with incredible speed. For this reason, we find it increasingly difficult to trust the figures and institutions we have always considered worthy of our respect. It is precisely because of the changes taking place that the way we think about leadership should also be revisited. But how can you be a good leader? Let Zoë Routh guide you in the discovery of leadership with her book People Stuff - Beyond Personality Problems: An Advanced Handbook for Leadership. Here, she will give you the tools to learn the practice of perspective and change the way you see yourself, your team, and all of us.

People Stuff - Beyond Personality Problems will broaden the horizons of many leaders, whether they are new or veterans. Zoë Routh explores many factors that I have never found elsewhere and that all leaders can use to change their perspectives. I found it enlightening to read about the archetypes and the vivid descriptions of each of them (and their shadows). I also liked the way she explained the conflicts that can arise when working as a team and the forces at work in these situations. Her tips on how to turn one of the Four Devils into a valuable leader are illuminating. I also appreciated the question and answers section at the end of the book because it offers additional material for those who need further clarification and suggestions. I recommend this book to all leaders who want to make a difference in their business and the world. Here you have the right tips to get started.
