Derailed Five Lessons Learned from Catastrophic Failures of Leadership by Tim IrwinI found this book to be overly simplistic and generalized Tim took the downfall of 6 different corporate leaders and identified five key character deficiencies he believes contributed He breaks character in to four key areas authenticity self management humility and courage I do believe the deficiencies were clearly there but I also believe that the derailments may have been complex than Tim describes Tim is attempting to present this material in the same form as “From Good to Great” However he simply doesn’t have the same amount of research and connections between the CEO train wrecks His dogmatic assertions are not based on scientific study but rather on an intuitive surface levelThat being said there is no doubt that these CEO’s would have been better leaders if they had developed these character ualities Tim does a good job of explaining each uality and showing how they could have a positive impact on business leaders today I particularly appreciated the way he presented the uality of courage and how it has an impact on the leadership provided Tim asserts that derailment is a process and I believe we would all agree However I’m not sure that it will always happen in the same orderAfter profiling the 6 leaders identifying character deficiencies and showing the downward process they follow Tim gives two chapters to explain how we can avoid a similar downfall He does a fine job but I believe that much could have been saidI probably would not recommend this book I found the book simplistic and boring I believe that you could find better books on leadership ualities and leadership deficiencies than “Derailed”

Applying the term derailed because of the train wreck September 2008 in California and the fact that it was due to human error Tim Irwin proceeds to give 6 illustrations of leaders who have derailed their careers in spite of the fact they were talented and had a prior history of successWe all have the opportunity to be derailed in life Tim’s purpose of this book is not about the six profiled leaders but instead is to help define what derailment is and to hopefully help us stay on trackDerailment is a process and usually in slow motion and the derailing leader usually believes he is right and must stay the course despite any warnings that may say otherwise The larger portion of the book is on providing us with the warning signals and helping us to hopefully avert them and to stay the course for the long haul He helps us evaluate our character authenticity humility and courage He says that our brand is not what we say it is but is what others say it is and there are early warning signs we should watch for“great leaders channel their ambition toward building their organization rather than personal aggrandizement” They realize “Most work in the organization is done by teamswhen someone takes excess credit he will ‘get cut from the herd pretty fast’”My only thought is that sometimes there are derailment casualties of a derailing leader frantically trying to hold on However this book will give us insight into our personal character and responsibility and will prove invaluable to any person who will read it and apply its principles
