The Leader Who Had No Title

A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and in Life
by Robin Sharma | 224 pages

Robin Sharma is one of the world’s top leadership experts. He’s also an extraordinarily inspiring guy. This is an inspiring fable about a disillusioned former veteran (Blake) who meets a mysterious mentor (Tommy) who introduces him to four exceptional leaders who change his life. Via this fun cast of characters, Robin downloads his ENORMOUS array of wisdom on leadership + personal greatness. Big Ideas we explore: the four keys to leading without a title, how to flip the leadership switch, the power of moving thru fear and embracing adversity, a simple way to optimize your relationships, and training like an athlete to achieve your personal greatness.


“The book you are now holding in your hands is the result of nearly fifteen years of my work as a leadership advisor to many of the Fortune 500, including Microsoft, GE, Nike, FedEx, and IBM, along with organizations such as Yale University, the American Red Cross, and the Young Presidents Organization. By applying the leadership system I teach you in this book, you will experience explosive results in your work and help your organization rise to a whole new level of innovation, performance and customer loyalty. You will also see profound improvements in your personal life and the way you show up in the world.

Please note: the leadership method I’m about to share is delivered to you as a story. The hero, Blake Davis; his unforgettable mentor, Tommy Flinn; and the four extraordinary teachers who transform the way he works and lives are all fictional characters—products of my overly active imagination. But trust that the leadership system itself, as well as the principles, tools, and tactics that it’s built upon, are very real and have helped hundreds of thousands of people in many of the most successful organizations in the world win in business and lead the field.

Victims recite problems. Leaders present solutions. My sincere hope is that The Leader Who Had No Title offers you and the organization you work for a game-changing solution to quickly and elegantly reach your absolute best in these turbulent and highly uncertain times.”

~ Robin Sharma from The Leader Who Had No Title

Robin Sharma is one of the world’s top leadership experts.

He’s also an extraordinarily inspiring guy. In our interview earlier this year, I was so fired up as he shared his wisdom that I wanted to give him a standing ovation half-way through our chat.

As the sub-title suggests, this book is “A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and in Life.” It’s an inspiring story about a disillusioned former veteran (Blake) who meets a mysterious mentor (Tommy) who introduces him to four exceptional leaders who change his life. Via this fun cast of characters, Robin downloads his ENORMOUS array of wisdom on leadership + personal greatness.

(In our first batch of Notes, we covered Robin’s classic fable The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. Check out our Notes on another fable called Be Unstoppable along with our Notes on Paulo Coelho for some great Ideas from a bunch of his books including The Alchemist.)

If you enjoy getting your wisdom on in the context of a fable and you’re looking for a fun read that’ll help you tap into your leadership potential, I think you’ll dig the book. (Get a copy here.)

I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump straight in!
