    Daniel Kurmaskie, Director of Training & Development, UF Health Jacksonville

    Phillip Wilson’s The Approachability Playbook is a perfect blend of practical leadership ideas anchored in great reflection questions along with many activities a leader can do to become an approachable leader. Deceptively small book with big ideas great for thoughtful leadership development with an individual leader or a group of leaders.

    Veronica Coleman, Principal, Mobile County Public School System

    The Approachability Playbook is very honest and compels one to take a frank look at their behaviors. Not only did it allow me an opportunity to reevaluate myself and my actions, it provided me with the necessary tools to become a more approachable leader. Change nothing about this book!

    Mark Floyd, Senior Director, Global Labor Relations, Uber Technologies

    The Approachability Playbook is a rare find among those of us who continually work on developing leadership skills in ourselves and in others. Phil Wilson hits the right combination of research insight with practical guidance and exercises to make this read an indispensable part of any leader’s skill development toolbox. The Approachability Playbook offers those who lead, from the boardroom to the front line, the coaching and the tools needed to create the daily habits fundamental to bridging the distance between a leader in name and leadership in action.

    Scott Purvis, Vice President, HR, Lowe’s

    Phil…BRAVO! As you know, I’ve been an early adopter and fan of the concept of approachability. The way you have so simply illuminated this construct is brilliantly digestible, leaving the reader with a sizable portion of “I can do this.” Amongst the sea of leadership approaches, principles, theories, and practices, The Approachability Playbook gravitates to the top when it comes to practical actions you can take to get the best out of your workplace interactions and speed with which those changes can be implemented.

    Ken Cannon, Owner, Cannon Labor Relations LLC (verified owner)

    I enjoyed the book due to its depth yet simple language in which a difficult subject is presented. The book was given to a VPHR of one of my accounts and she liked it so much, she purchased one for each of the company’s manager. She followed up by presenting the book and its key messages in a meeting of all plant managers and senior level managers. The story I connected with was chapter two, “Curb Appeal.” Mark Zuckerberg’s quote reminded me of all the tough jams I have had to work my way out of in the past and how to be open and pragmatic in the future.

    Phil, my granddaughter taught me recently that what determines if a book is a classic is when you read it over and over and you learn something new each time you re-read the book. I predict this book will become a business classic and will be used in management training sessions in the future especially where managers need to redress their lack of a “neighborly” attitude towards their employees. You have hit a grand slam with, “Approachability.”
