Summary

Designed to challenge and inspire anyone who is seeking a deeper understanding of management, Lessons in Leadership provides a series of reflections on the very fundamentals of leadership as a management function. 
In the midst of current global concerns about the quality of leadership, this book is both a practical handbook and a vital contribution to the ongoing debate about what kind of leadership we should be encouraging in today's volatile and uncertain world. 
 
Sometimes it's easy to lose sight of the basics in this dynamic sector. To help steer both current and future leaders to greatness, John Adair has distilled his vast experience into 12 key guiding concepts, including:  
 
·         Leading from the front;  
·         Integrity; 
·         The strategic leader; 
·         Warmth and humanity; and  
·         Sharing dangers and hardships. 
 
Leadership and change go hand in hand – but even during times of change, the basic building blocks of leadership remain the same. Lessons in Leadership offers guidance, inspiration, reassurance and insight for anyone who is expected to lead or who wants to refresh and sharpen their current leadership practices.

    The book explains elaborately the basic concept of Yoga, its origin, philosophy and aim, and also the relevance of Yoga in the present world.  In fact, Yoga has an answer for every possible ailment/disease that affects the human race, including some of the deadly ones too, such as Cancer, AIDS, etc. 
    Initially, the Yogic saints developed the Yogasanas by referring to animals, birds, trees and other creatures in order to stretch or relax. There are innumerable Yogasanas discussed in the book. Some of the well-known among them are: Surya Namaskar and its different poses, Uttana Padasana (Stretched leg Pose), Pawana Muktasana (Wind Release Pose), Naukasana (Boat Pose), Chakrasana (Wheel Pose), Padmasana (Lotus Pose), Halasana (Plough Pose), etc.  Another salient feature of the book is that there are different sections, such as: Management of Common Diseases through Yoga, Pranayama & Yogic Diet, Yoga for Seniors, Yoga for Women, Yoga for Children & Students, Yoga for Managing Stress, etc. 
    However, it is recommended that Yoga should always be practised under the guidance of a trained Yoga Teacher/Practitioner.

     The marketing world isn't what it used to be. Simply creating a good product isn't enough, and standard advertisements now just get lost amongst all the others. To get people's attention and be truly successful, you've got to stand out and get noticed-just like a purple cow.
     
     
     
    Most of us wouldn't stop and stare at something mundane, like a herd of cows. But if one of those cows happened to be bright purple, it would draw attention far and wide.

    ·      That your best potential customers should be seeking you out, and not the other way around
     
    ·      Why catering your products and ads to the majority is the worst thing you can do
     
    ·      How to expand your business once you've created a successful product.
