Becoming a Technical Leader is a personalized guide to developing the qualities that make a successful problem-solving leader. The book emphasizes that we all contain the ingredients for leadership though some elements are better developed than others. Written with humour, wit and perspective, the book examines different leadership styles and focuses on the problem-solving style as the one generally used by successful technical leaders. Such leaders have a unique blend of skills in three main areas: innovation, motivation and organization. The book suggests ways for the reader to analyze his own leadership skills in each of these three areas, and offers practical steps for developing those skills. Topics treated in the book include a working definition of leadership, leadership models, excuses people use to avoid leadership issues, tools for developing self-awareness and idea power, ways to help and motivate others, and plans for developing and carrying out a personal program for change.

For each of the three topics Weinberg explains in depth the collected experience of 15 years of technical leadership and how he - among others - came to the conclusion that these three fields cover the essence of a technical leader.
Regarding Innovation Weinberg gives insights into creative thinking, which obstacles exist for creative and how to overcome them. On the motivational aspect he shows how to keep people motivated at work, how to help them by giving and receiving advices. On the organizational part you will learn how to observe how decisions in your company are made and what alternatives could be chosen.
The book helped me gain insights into my personal leadership and on which fields I could improve. Thereby I noticed that the foreword from Ken Orr is pretty true regarding Weinberg books: You read them, grasp a bit of the contents from it, and over time feel the urge to re-read it in order to get more additional insights. Each time you're going to read this, there will be a new thing to learn for you in it.
Gerald Weinberg manages to present a lot of practical advice mostly through personal anecdotes in 24 short yet stimulating chapters. I found the writing to be both casual and easy to digest, yet also full of substance. The author offers concrete advice, concludes each chapter with follow-up questions, and suggests to devote 5 minutes of each day for a personal journal on leadership topics.
If you're interested in management topics, especially if you're a software developer or work in a related, highly innovative industry, this is a great read. If you've read and liked other books from Mr Weinberg, this one won't disappoint you.
Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com (beta)
While reading this book, I had several major realizations about work relationships, why people react they way that they do, and how to motivate them. The title of the book uses the term "Organic" to describe this process, and it is a very valid claim because many of the leadership qualities are not masks that you put on or tricks that you acquire. Instead, they are internal realizations and shedding of misconceptions and assumptions that currently prevent you from being an effective leader. Cathartic in a self-help kind-of a way.
This is highly recommended reading for technical folks in leadership positions, or those who are looking to become technical leaders. Weinberg includes many stories and examples which carify each chapter. The book is a very easy read.
Everyone should read this book, and you may want to own one, as there are passages that you will want to reference from time to time.
