I enjoyed reading the book ‘Empowered’ by Dominica Lumazar. It is a short book with 155 pages, broken down into smaller topics, easy to read and understandable. The book was not only educative, but stood to the meaning of its title ‘Empowered’, as it went out of its way to offer a ‘rubric’ to a successful business practice.
It is a resource that I feel, offers some of the most effective strategies in the psychology of business practice, ethics and ideals. In addition, the book is a must to every business-minded person. It also can be seen as an easy manual for laymen and students in Business studies and practices who can benefit immensely in the rich contents of the book. It does not only offer theory, but practice, confessions on mistakes, advice to deal with challenges and downright takes the reader in the most intimate details of the writer’s business journey.
It is a masterpiece, a priceless and selfless resource, written by someone who has charted and walked the course. It is so generously done that, one feels not only empowered, but mentored for success! Her book blends experience and extensive research in the area, giving an informed and an exhaustive exposition of key elements needed for any business to thrive. She leaves no stone unturned, from leadership theories to staff management, advertising, branding, environment, flexibility just to name a few.
She gives tips and advice to business practioners, including further sites for resources, and reflection questions at the end of each chapter, to help those who may want to read widely. Her consistent message in this book may have been; if you want, it’s there, make a plan, stay focused, be diligent and go and get it! She said that sometimes, in order to flourish, a business has to continue offering great products, and that they have to keep changing or evolving in order to keep up with the times.
According to her, there is no substitute for teamwork, one must keep advisers and stay flexible. All this, is said in a non-imposing, yet authoritative tone that remain conversational and down to earth. It is a scholarly artefact! I would certainly give it a rating of four out of four (4/4).
