    1. Joseph L. Badaracco Jr. Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Leading Quietly book, this is one of the most wanted Joseph L. Badaracco Jr. author readers around the world.

    2. While this book does present several strong foundational values for evaluating difficult situations from multiple perspectives, the methodology Badaracco presents is rooted in working within or around broken systems, never directly against them. The pragmatism exemplified by the case studies is effective for overcoming immediate problems, but gives no critical insight into or guidance for creating systemic change. Ultimately, this book offers a road map for climbing the proverbial corporate ladd [...]

    3. I don't know how this book got on my footstool! I read it this weekend and I wish I had read it in 2002 when it came out. Once in a while a book arrives that consolidates all the instinctual things I have been practicing. It is very affirming and helpful.I highly recommend it for church leaders who are often condemned to being heroic or not. It is an essay using case studies from business and government (not the church). But they all point to a leadership style reflected in Circle of Hope's prov [...]

    4. This book was mostly anecdotal. I thought the case reports were good examples but I found the information to be pretty common sense and nothing really inspiring.

    5. Message of this book is quite simple and straightforward: another side of leadership is not noisy as we see it everyday. Quiet leaders see the world as it is, invest time to understand situations and fix small problems, carefully investigate and overcome dilemmas to make the progress. Unlike heroic leaders, quiet leaders strive for balanced, harmonic and ethical decisions. This book is perfectly companion-ed with "Five Minds for the future" by H. Gardner which deeply discusses the "ethical mind" [...]

    6. A rather boring book about some rather 'boring' leaders, which in a way, helped me question my view of who makes a leader. Badaracco is adamant that life is not about the heroes and their heroic acts (the foam on the waves as he calls them), but that small acts can have a big impact - and even if they don't, they're often still the right thing to do.It's helped me value my approach to situations - often pragmatic, considering a range of possible outcomes, and attempting to buy time to help me ma [...]

    7. I read this book as part of an MBA class 20 years ago when I was early in my career. I enjoyed it then because it illustrated how you don't need to be a charismatic leader to be a good leader. I read it a second time with a lot of management experience and found the book very repetitious and academic. The little that I can find on the author indicates he has been in academia for most of his career which is why this reads like a text book of illustrations or a summary of third party research inst [...]

    8. While some of the information and concepts given in the book are interesting, I found what Badaracco was saying to be a bit disturbing moral-wise. I definitely disagree with the traits he believes make up a good leader.

    9. Great book, offering strong, understandable examples. Not too technical, easy to immediately apply.
