“I can take what I have learned from this book and class and apply it to improving myself. Each competency, of outstanding leadership, is really an umbrella for underlying skills a person can  work on. This book really hones in on key skills because it is noted that a person cannot master a competency but can master the skills within that competency. It is comforting and reassuring to read that the human performance is limitless in its ability to execute complex and difficult task. All competencies can be worked on and utilized at the same time. Final observation, this book has made it clear that there is power in consistency.”

“I found it very easy to read this book especially knowing the author personally and how he communicates. It brought me to a place where I did not feel like I was reading words on a page, but rather sitting in a room listening to Tim speak. The use of humor here and there definitely helped along the way get through certain areas. Even though the book is complete, I will definitely keep it in rotation and reference it when I feel like I need a refresh.”
