'A Leader's Gift' is aptly subtitled How to Earn the Right to Be Followed. It's a better than average leadership book with principles the author has learned over his career.

The author, Barry Banther, begins with a story from his early days of being a leader. He is honest with the mistakes he made, and it affects how he leads from that point on. The concepts in this book are about what it takes to lead a team of people. Presented as a series of gifts, like the Gift of Investing Time in Others' the chapter is laid out like a gift that you must receive, wrap, and give to others. The last half of the book reinforces the overall concepts and talks about using these gifts outside of a work situation.

The writing style is approachable with the right amount of self-effacing honesty. The concepts are good for building a team. This would be a good gift for a first time leader, if they are open to learning from someone else's mistakes. I enjoyed reading it and learning from Barry Banther.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Greenleaf Book Group and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this informative ebook.
