What makes a great leader? Do you consider yourself a manager or a visionary? Find out the answers to these questions and more with The Indispensable Leader. With over twenty years of experience in leading retail, non-profit and for-profit, service-related companies, leadership expert Darby Vannier wishes to use that accumulated knowledge to provide future leaders of tomorrow with the necessary tools to be successful leaders, both in their professional and personal lives. Vannier doesn't look too favorably on the leadership archetypes. Instead, he holds the view that a person can acquire the attributes of both a manager -- an incredibly organized, task-focused leader who does what they set out to do -- and a visionary -- a passionate leader who is obsessed with the bigger picture and inspires creativity and spontaneity amongst their followers.

Through personal anecdotes and real-life examples, author Darby Vannier offers ways for upcoming entrepreneurs to attain the qualities of both an organized, 'face one problem at a time' type manager and a 'dream big,' broad picture kind of visionary leader. There is clarity and structural organization to the way Vannier puts his thoughts on the pages which makes the content approachable and easy to digest. Aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders will find much to learn about how one can change and improve the dynamics of their organization through the tools and practices discussed. Overall, I found The Indispensable Leader to be an inspiring book that is well-researched, organized, and informative. Recommended to all the budding CEOs and managers of tomorrow.
