What People are Saying

These are some of the testimonials and reviews that the book has garnered:

“To develop themselves, leaders must clarify their theories of success and constantly seek feedback on these in the practice field of life. Mark has taken this one step further with Discover Your Leadership Style, exposing his ideas and thoughts to public scrutiny. This book is an obvious statement of confidence in his own leadership style and his openness to feedback, and can only accelerate his own learning and growth. This, in itself, speaks volumes about his appreciation of the nature of leadership. I am confident that the reader will find many gems in this book, which is likely to be only the first in many more to come.”

BG Lim Teck Yin, Commandant, SAFTI Military Institute

“This book is filled with stories by a leader who teaches leaders. Through these stories, Mark Chew brings us into the minds and souls of different characters, as well as through his own experiences in leadership management. Discover Your Leadership Style is indeed an outstanding leadership guide for all ages. I highly recommend it.”

– Suresh Nair, Director/Executive Coach, CELLS Management and Consultancy Pte Ltd

“As Mark correctly points out in his book, leaders are not born but made. In Discover Your Leadership Style, you will learn about the characteristics that make a great leader and how you can develop them within yourself. What I love about this book is that the lessons are taught through entertaining and well-crafted stories, and each alternate chapter is followed by thought-provoking questions that help you to reflect on and integrate the lessons being taught. I am sure you will be entertained and empowered when you read this book.”

– Adam Khoo, Asia’s #1 Success Coach, Author of 11 Books including, Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires and Master Your Mind Design Your Destiny

“This book offers philosophical perspectives on effective leadership. Mark’s ability to use stories from various experiences to impart fundamental leadership principles in an interesting and concise manner makes this book an excellent read. Those interested to renew their beliefs about great leadership or want a head start towards developing themselves as a pioneer should pick up this book to read.”

Gary Lee, Regional Head of Training, Adam Khoo Learning Technologies Group

“Leadership skills are notoriously difficult to teach well, and yet they are essential in almost every field of human endeavour. That’s why I’m so impressed with Discover Your Leadership Style by Mark Chew.

Drawing on his extensive military and business experience, Mark has identified four key qualities that make a good leader. Mark takes each of these qualities and, using the power of stories, shows how good leaders should apply them in practice (and the negative consequences when they don’t).

The book is an easy and enjoyable read, yet succeeds in conveying some quite advanced ideas and concepts. I am happy to recommend it to anyone who wishes to boost their leadership skills or is involved in training others for this role.”

– Nick Daws, Freelance Writer & Consultant, www.nickdaws.co.uk

“Can you really discover what your leadership style is? Mark Chew, in this terrific book, says yes. With the deft touch of a skilled storyteller, he brings us into the minds and souls of different characters as well as through his own experiences in leadership management. Discover Your Leadership Style is an outstanding leadership guide to understanding what it means to take ownership of your team!”

Shaun Kan, Senior Engineer, Department of Main Roads and Transport, Metropolitan Region, Australia

“Discover Your Leadership Style is a book about how to be a good leader by being a good mentor through leadership, management, humility and friendship. The author, Mark Chew, cleverly uses his natural story-telling skills to demonstrate every lesson of leadership he promotes. But this is more than just a book about being a good leader; it’s about making life decisions in any given situation, and how to make the right choices rather than the popular choices as most people incorrectly do.

It doesn’t matter if the team you want to lead is an army of soldiers, a classroom of students, your co-workers, your family, your friends or even just yourself. This book will teach you and inspire you every step of the way through each thought-provoking chapter.

I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting because it is full of new insights about leadership and Mark also has the enviable writing talent to make this book ‘unput-downable’. It’s not very often that I come across a book I want to read again and again. But Discover Your Leadership Style is certainly one of those rare books. The more times I read it, the more I learned and the more I enjoyed it. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend that you do.”

Ruth Barringham, Author, Writer, Publisher, Brisbane, Australia, http://writeaholics.net

“A highly recommended and essential read for those in leadership positions or are aspiring to be in one. Mark Chew provides a fresh approach and remarkable insight into the attributes of becoming a great leader through his real-life experiences – from his involvement in competitive sports to his stint in the military. He is able to translate his experience into the commercial world, using the principles of leadership from a theoretical as well as a practical approach.”

George Goh, Senior Manager, Research, Analysis and Planning, Singapore Press Holdings

“Superb story telling! This book brought back wonderful memories of my days as a Battalion Commander. Mark has succinctly and anecdotally brought forth the essence of a good leader and what effective leadership is all about to bring forth success. This book has helped to re-affirm my leadership attributes, and is a must-read for both teenagers (to help them learn) and mature leaders (as a mentoring or coaching tool).”

Ricky Wah, CEO, Founder, Alrai International

“I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to boost their leadership skills or is involved in training others in a sacred role like mentorship.”

Goh Gin Hwee, Business Owner

Mark Chew’s book, Discover Your Leadership Style, will dramatically change the reader’s perspective on what makes a good leader. He has touched on the key elements of true leadership such as building relationships, rapport, learning to listen to people, empowerment of the team and finally a true win-win spirit which will benefit both the organisation as well as the team player. He clearly knows what he is talking about as he has spent years in senior positions in the military. This training will be immensely beneficial to anyone looking for skill sets in leadership to take them to the next level in their career, whatever it may be. I shall be recommending this must-read book to my organisation!”

Claude Fullinfaw, International Business Developer, Brisbane, Australia

Mark has come up with a unique and foolproof way for you to discover your leadership blueprint. Use the attributes wisely and you will find your team growing closer to you.”
