Book Review: “Innovation’s Dirty Little Secret” By Larry Osborne


“Innovation’s Dirty Little Secret” by Larry Osborne

This is a fantastic book which speaks to the root of innovation. Mr. Osborne provokes you to come to terms with where you stand as a leader in whatever capacity you serve in. For me, this book has opened my eyes to the mistakes I am making and to the areas where I need to improve in. It also stands as a reminder that I am only human. It digs into topics such as barriers of growth, the perception of innovation, and overcoming frequent mistakes most leaders make.

As Executive Director of Voice4Society, it is imperative that I acknowledge my shortcomings in an attempt to progress in my position….and this book has helped me recognize some of the common pitfalls I was headed towards. After all, the saying, “What you don’t know can still hurt you”, is quite true.

In this book, the information is presented in a cohesive manner. If I could change anything, it would probably be to add a “Notes” page after each chapter or after each section. The book reflected biblical truth that is vital in the field of organizational leadership and management. I would recommend this book as a resource for any leader, especially those in the not-for-profit sector. With that said, it’s a permanent part of my bookshelf now!
