Obstacles Welcome by Ralph de la Vega

November 3, 2009 16:49 by ckincincy

imageThe third installment in the book review program with Thomas Nelson publishing, covered here, was  a leadership book written by the top executive of AT&T wireless, Ralph de la Vega. 

This book is an extremely easy read, almost story like.  This book was a review of de la Vega’s life, from a poor Cuban immigrant to who he is today.  Where the title comes from, is without the obstacles he has faced he wouldn’t be where he is today.  So obstacles should be welcomed, not avoided. 

This book was obviously de la Vega’s way to try and cement his legacy, filled with several great quotes and pointers about how to plan for success, in spite of obstacles.  Great words of wisdom on how to build a team that is destined for success. 

I’ll be passing this book onto the local VP of my employer.  There is nothing, if implemented correctly, in this book that would cause issues for the employee.  Then I’ll be re-reading parts of this book in the future to get a good handle on some of it’s concepts.

The only negative I have about this book is that, at times, it was a little too simple of a book.  Almost minimizing the real struggles and failures that happen, even when all the right steps were taken along the way.
