Review by Melissa Dalton Martinez

Anyone who focuses on the word manage in the title of this book will miss a life-changing opportunity to make a difference—not only in the workplace, but in the community and at home.

In Don’t Just Manage—Lead! Arthur F. Coombs strips away the all the “tried-and-true” management techniques that have been taught for decades. There’s one simple reason why: people—whether at the office or at home—don’t like to be managed. They like to be led by someone who helps them focus on the positive, builds their worth, and inspires them to do their best. In this groundbreaking volume, you’ll learn how to give people the “why” in their individual situation—then watch them soar as they figure out the rest.

Grappling with the fallout of a worldwide pandemic has fundamentally changed the way most of us do business. In this highly readable and engaging book, you’ll learn how to be an impactful leader in a new environment and how to effectively address the changes you’re facing in a constantly fluctuating atmosphere.

Best of all, Art shows how the same principles apply in every situation, especially at home. He not only provides inspiring examples and quotes from highly respected leaders but shares stories from his own life to illustrate how leading with love makes a profound difference in every context.

Don’t Just Manage—Lead! is the last “management” book you’ll ever need and the beginning of a journey in which you discover how to unlock the potential and promise of those you lead.

Review by Kathryn Jenkins Oveson

If you’re like most in management positions, you’ve read your share of books on management principles. Well, fasten your seatbelt, because Don’t Just Manage—Lead! breaks through all the ideas that only marginally work and teaches instead how to be the kind of leader who motivates and inspires—not just at work but at home.

There’s a reason why Arthur F. Coombs, an experienced and gifted CEO with decades of experience, transformed a startup into a company that created more than a thousand jobs in two short years. In this cutting-edge work, he distills the characteristics of effective leaders into an understandable and usable guide for all who want to inspire and encourage those in every circle of influence. He also demonstrates the profound difference it makes when people are led, not managed.

Art’s willingness to offer examples from his own life provides a solid foundation you can build on both in the workplace and in your home. In this transformational volume, you’ll truly see—maybe for the first time—how leading with love and building a sense of worth in those you lead makes all the difference, not only for you, but for them.
