One thought on “Leadership the Eleanor Roosevelt Way: Timeless Strategies from the First Lady of Courage

  1. I decided I had to read this book when I heard the author lecture at Scripps College It s a cross between a manual on how to become a good leader and a biography of Eleanor Roosevelt It was written for younger women, but I was still completely inspired by it.


  2. I stumbled across this while looking for Eleanor Roosevelt biographies It was really good It does give good insight into Roosevelt s life and it was full of lots of good stuff for being not just a leader, but a woman in the workplace Maybe especially in a male dominated field I felt really spoken to, like, oh yeah, this is stuff I can do which certainly doesn t always happen in these kind of books.I think I will buy it in hard copy.


  3. As the title indicates this book is about the life and stories of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, with a particular focus on her leadership abilities As the author states in his introduction Eleanor Roosevelt holds an unassailable place as the most respected and well known woman of the last century In the year before her death in 1962, international polls repeatedly showed her to be the world s most admired woman The book is divided into 12 sections, each focusing on one aspect of ER s leadership [...]


  4. Eleanor Roosevelt had a sad childhood Her father was the only one who showed her any affection, but he succumbed to alcoholism following the untimely death of his son Eleanor was constantly reminded that she was no beauty Her mother in law frequently interferred in her life, and her husband, President Franklin Roosevelt, cheated on her for years Despite these emotional hardships, Eleanor discovered and cultivated her strengths and became a much admired figure in our history Her methods for leade [...]


  5. Gerber does a fantastic job of taking the reader through the life of First Lady To the World, Eleanor Roosevelt I appreciated how she wove together the story of Eleanor s life with practical leadership advice and anecdotes about current women in leadership In the current political climate, I found this book an exceptionally informative and encouraging read, and would highly recommend it to any woman who wants to lead


  6. 2.5 stars The writing was pretty good with some nice examples I rounded up because of the history of Eleanor Roosevelt that I wasn t previously aware This is probably a good book for someone seeking leadership tips.



  7. This book takes important parts of ER s life and how she did what she did and breaks them down into lessons for our own lives and how we can be leaders following her example There are great stories and quotes from ER and current female leaders There are bullet point take aways at the end of each chapter.


  8. I just started this book and have not gotten into the advice section Eleanor s childhood biography is inspirational on its own Her ability to overcome the emotional adversity she experienced as a child is inspiring in itself The book is great for someone starting into leadership, like an at home mom or someone who has been trying to move from a less experienced or less public position to one where confidence and assertiveness is needed I found it ultimately interesting, especially if you have ha [...]


  9. This is a must read for anyone who thinks Eleanor Roosevelt was an interesting wonderful smart woman who was say ahead of her time, or who aspires to be a wise intelligent leader herself The author uses Eleanor s life and experience, including the effort Eleanor had to put into learning her role and the rules of the road in a time when women for the most part weren t expected to be leaders I recommend it highly


  10. 2.5 stars.I picked this up because I wanted to learn about Mrs Roosevelt without committing to a 1500 page scholarly work The author s summary of Eleanor s life career are nice, but when she tries to impart some wisdom about leadership strategies the writing becomes strained not to mention her outlook seems a tad outdated for a 2002 publication This book is not altogether terrible but definitely falls short.


  11. Robin Gerber has a creative way of looking at events in Eleanor Roosevelt s life and examining how they shaped her character and leadership style Some of the modern day examples that she chose could have been better Eleanor Roosevelt certainly made a difference in the world at a time when women did not have much power We women of today can get inspiration from the way she learned from adversity and became a stronger person.


  12. One chapter talks about leadership skills that are learned as a mother apply in the workplace And how those skills actually make you valuable in the workplace Oh yeah That got my attention an dmade me like this book all the How validating I have a few chapters but the book got tidied and now I can t find it Malachi is known to stuff things in weird, random places It will turn up, I hope


  13. This was one of many required readings for a leadership class I thought this was a very straight forward and easy read It helps you understand Eleanor and it is very inspiring This book walks you through ways to be your better self and a better leader I recommend to anyone who is interested in Eleanor or interested in self improvement.


  14. This book has a lot to offer I don t think the personal leadership lessons and the random lessons from other women leaders work woven into a narrative about ER, but the lessons from ER and the literature reviewed makes this a book I would use in class Wish there were overt lessons about Lorena Hickock.


  15. Read this book for an Athenian Dialogue Partly frustrated with it because there were a lot of references to other people who didn t have anything to do with Eleanor She was a great lady who could have filled her own book without them It had a lot of good thoughts on Leadership One great thought from the book, Work is easier to carry if your heart is involved ER


  16. Learned there was a lot about Eleanor Roosevelt that I didn t know Also learned that I don t much care for the writings of Robin Gerber based on this one book She did well enough when she kept to the history as far as I know , but when she went into today s leadership and women in general, I wondered how well she actually knew us.


  17. I have this book to thank for wrapping my head around leading effectively It is often hard to take a position of authority and do it gracefully, but this book really highlights aspects of Eleanor s life that we all can relate to, and learn from.


  18. An incredible book I could read over and over again,if I didn t have books to read Written very well I loved how the historical aspects were written to be applied to today s leadership world Eleanor Roosevelt Rocks Definitely a keeper


  19. I loved this book It s not especially challenging and the take aways are somewhat obvious, but there are some valuable lessons to learn from Eleanor Roosevelt, especially as a female leader before her time.





  20. I liked the other book I read on Eleanor Roosevelt it gave me a greater view of her life Reading the two together helped me be able to read this one on her leadership principles.



  21. Not much new here Leadership principles are very basic The biographical sections about her life are good but led me to expect something insightful about leadership.



  22. This is a must read for all women of all ages It should be required reading in high school I understand why Eleanor Roosevelt is so important to American history as well as women s history.


  23. Wonderful strategies I m sure, but after nine years, I can t think of one of them I love Eleanor so much that I am going to reread this book.
