This is the first book I've ever read on the topic of leadership and I'm not actually sure I need to read another. Tammy Tansley has managed to cover so much in such a concise way and answered questions before I even realised I had them. The knowledge and research is presented in a simple and straightforward manner and I loved the inclusion of so many links and recommendations on where to dig deeper into each chapter. It is clear that leadership is a topic she has a broad understanding of and has done a brilliant job of distilling all that information into an enjoyable and inspiring read.
This book would be ideal for anyone who finds themselves in any sort of leadership role and is aware that they want to consciously lead in the best way they can. That's what I loved about this book. It's an 'anyone can do this' approach that doesn't rely on simply following a list of things to do or not do, but rather presenting a lot of the psychology of why to explain and inspire. I'm sure I'll refer to this book often as new leadership issues arise for me and having just finished am looking forward to exploring the extra resources on the website. Would definitely recommend.

About the Author
The first question that people always ask is why did you write this book? I wrote this book for a number of my coaching clients who were looking for a book that gave them practical tools and solid theory without the waffle of academia and the ra ra of the inspirational books.. We couldn't find a book that gave them that balance, so I wrote it!! I have worked with amazing, experienced and inspiring leaders, and those that are just starting out. I have worked with leaders who bring their teams on extraordinary change journeys and those who view leadership as a chore to be tolerated. This book is the consolidation of all those experiences, good and bad! I have over 25 years experience in HR, including five years running my own HR practice. I have worked in Australia and overseas, in large organisations and with tiny businesses; public sector, private and not for profit! My style is straightforward and pragmatic, and that is how you will find the style of the book. It is written as if we were sitting across from each other with a coffee, talking about your leadership issues and challenges, and what you could do about them. I am a mother to two beautiful little girls, a founding member of the Pets of Older Persons (POOPs WA) and a runner training for my first half marathon(with a temporary injury induced halt unfortunately). I have travelled and lived all over the world, but am very happy to call Perth, Western Australia home. I love to write, and to read.. a lot! And I love good food. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Reviewed in Australia on 29 June 2015
This book is jam packed full of useful guidance, resources and directly applicable tools for managers and leaders who are new and experienced. Tammy Tansley inspires the reader to want to be a better leader, then gives tactical instruction on how to get there. Do what you say you"ll do is an interesting, insightful and enjoyable read for all. You don't have to be in a formal leadership position to get value out of this book. Definitely recommend it as a handbook to keep close throughout your career.

Your guide to becoming the leader you always wanted to beReviewed in the United States on 14 June 2015
I've had the privilege to witness Tammy's knowledge and skills firsthand and have known about this book since it was in the idea phase. Of course I couldn't wait to read it. The best part is that it's written with empathy for the leaders it's designed to help. In Do What You Say You'll Do, Tammy combines experience and deep knowledge, then distills them into practical lessons that have guided the countless leaders she has worked during her successful career. Not a word is wasted, full of thought provoking takeaways and action inducing questions to set you on the path to becoming the leader you always wanted to be.
