A good leader must have self-confidence, intuition, compassion, and common sense. Can leadership be taught? Yes, according to author John Graham, who has spent a lifetime exploring the role of leadership in numerous venues.

It's not just skills and techniques, but a subjective blend of personality and style. A good leader must have self-confidence, intuition, compassion, and common sense. Can leadership be taught? Yes, according to author John Graham, who has spent a lifetime exploring the role of leadership in numerous venues. But, Graham points out, it's not just mastery from the head, it's also learning how to monitor the heart. Outdoor Leadership covers the skills, attitudes, and intuition necessary for leading in an outdoor setting and beyond. All aspects of leadership are explored including forming a personal style, making decisions, communicating effectively, team building, and coping with stress. The principle taught here may be applied to outdoor leadership in all settings, from a day trip to a siege mountaineering expedition. The skills are equally appropriate to other leadership situationsñfrom running a business meeting to coaching the neighborhood softball team to serving as a role models for your child. Each chapter features a leadership checklist and thoughts on leadership from a variety of outdoor experts, including climbers, bikers, wilderness travel experts, and adventurers. Outdoor Leadership is compelling reading filled with practical advice, anecdotes, and trail-tested wisdom - indispensable information and guidance for the complete outdoors person.

It is a very good book on Leadership. I would point out that it is based on mountain climbing and all the things that go into preparing for a climb. It shows that you need to prepare your mind and body for any adventure that you tackle; indoors and outdoors. I feel, most people prepare for their standard day and that is about as far as they go with planning. This book has you look at the "what if's" in your daily routine. The book makes you look at what you should do if your day is not routine. What about traffic, an accident, train crossing delay, mechanical problems with your car? When you are in the position to be responsible for others; you need to be prepared. I feel I learned much from this book and recommend its reading. Our group had good discussions in each chapter.

This is the best guide to outdoor leadership that I have had the pleasure to read. It is very well written and an easy read. He goes through many of the different situations you can find yourself in, and the guidance to know what to do about them using the servant leader attitude. This book is not just a how to in leading in the outdoors, but shows you how to do it in a caring way. For anyone who is looking to lead people in outdoor activities you want the people you are leading to not only look up to you, but enjoy what they are doing because you made it a much better experience than it could have been without you in the leadership position.

On the face of it, this book is about how to successfully lead a group of outdoor adventurers who have paid for your leadership or who by explicit agreement or unspoken convention yield authority to you. Thus, everyone in the group holds you ultimately responsible for their well being and morale, and you have the rank and social power within the group to send someone packing if you so judge. Since the context of this leadership is an outdoor adventure, the examples of how to lead involve scenarios of that sort. Extrapolation can go in two directions: outdoor adventure in general, no matter who is in charge, and leadership in general, no matter what the context. The first arises from the attention in the book to wise planning and preparation before the trek, and while out in the wild, to calm, reasoned, compassionate leadership choices aimed at the safety and well-tempered dynamics of the group. The second arises because leading in the field and leading indoors both involve having socially sanctioned authority over people who may disagree with your choices or your right to power.

The book reads a little too much like a PBS special, where on stage there's an ever smiling man in a soft sweater, pacing slowly with small gestures as he speaks. Behind him is a large screen where we can read his discussion points and favorite quotations. In a quiet, gentle voice he urges us all to find inner peace and harmony, for in finding our calm center we will inspire respect and cooperative obedience.

Great book on leadership. I agree with another reviewer that the gender issues, although probably slightly "ahead" of the times when the book was written, seem out of date now. Besides that chapter, a great book on outdoor leadership and leadership in general.

Tempted to give it a one-star because the publisher increased the Kindle price *way* out of line!
Otherwise, it's a good book on leadership, though the gender issues could be updated.

The advice, stories, and experiences of the author are insightful and inspiring. Decades of experience managing people is put into nuggets of information in just over a hundred pages. It is titled outdoor leadership but the information in this book can be applied to any managerial setting, including managing ones own life. This is a book I'll come back to again and again.

Excellent book, well written gives sound and helpful guidance in an area where lives are at stake not just how to have a good trip.
It's a great read on leadership in the great outdoors...which applies in the great indoors, too!
