The 5 Truths of Remarkable Leaders by Dean McKinney answers the question: “What makes a real leader different from the ordinary person?” In this book, readers will find five fundamental truths that have shaped the lives of numerous leaders and those who make a huge difference where they are. Readers will discover humanity’s place in the running of human affairs and business and those values that allow competent leaders to have a positive and lasting influence on those under them. There are important traits that come across as powerful and central in Dean McKinney’s writing. As the readers turn the pages, they understand what every person longs for - self-actualization, self-esteem, love, the sense of belonging, safety needs, and physiological needs. A leader who understands these basic human needs and can use them to connect with those under him or her will make a huge difference and drive success in the organization, and this book shows how.

The 5 Truths of Remarkable Leaders creates a roadmap for readers who want to excel in leadership and proposes what they need to know and do to grow people under them and lead teams to success. Writing in a compelling and irresistible voice, the author explores the human needs that real leaders need to pay attention to. This is one of the best business books I have read in a very long time, and the author shows readers what it takes to lead people to success. The prose is crisp and accessible. The writing is replete with real-life examples. The author underlines those elements that leaders pay attention to when leading teams and an organization. This book is well-researched, and the author offers references that are relevant and spot-on. Dean McKinney comes across as a powerful coach in leadership and success. His book will change or enrich the way most of us look at leadership.

The 5 Truths of Remarkable Leaders by Dean McKinney speaks volumes for the page length that it sports. Without a doubt, it is comprised of relatable and real-life situations that are easily understandable that have occurred in the United States. These circumstances are beacons, shining a light for business owners to follow the path to an everlasting professional footprint. On page 21, McKinney states: “Simply put, you need a team that’s dedicated more to the team goal than they are to their own personal ambitions, a team that realizes everyone’s success is interconnected.” This is only one of the platinum-dipped pearls of wisdom that can be extracted from Dean McKinney’s The 5 Truths of Remarkable Leaders.

Dean McKinney’s The 5 Truths of Remarkable Leaders surprised me in the best way. The world of business has always been a mystery for me but felt way outside the bounds of what I’m personally able to comprehend. Maybe that’s why it’s been such a mystery. But The 5 Truths of Remarkable Leaders cracked some of that code in a way that left me feeling eager to learn more; it made me want to change how I saw things, how I saw the world and the people in it, their jobs, in particular. You will walk away from this book after reading it, but it will linger a long while in your mind. It will sit with you like those precious few books you come across once in a decade, and for this reason, I highly recommend it.
