  • "A Key Resource for Any Change Leader"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The author opens this book with a discussion of the common errors people make in trying to implement organizational change. He then goes on to counteract those errors with his eight-stage process for implementing effective and sustainable change: 1) Establishing a sense of urgency; 2) Creating the guiding coalition; 3) Developing a vision and strategy; 4) Communicating the change vision; 5) Empowering a broad base of people to take action; 6) Generating short-term wins; 7) Consolidating gains and producing even more change; and 8) Institutionalizing new approaches into the culture. The first four stages are intended to defrost a hardened status quo, the next three introduce many new practices, and the final stage grounds the changes into the corporate culture and helps them stick. This book is a comprehensive approach to change management and highly recommended for anyone undertaking a major change effort within an organization.

    2. Who is our customer?
    3. What does the customer value?
    4. What are our results?
    5. What is our plan?

    These five questions weave together a process of reflection an organization can undertake to determine its current reality and chart a future course. For those interested in further inquiry, Drucker lists a number of additional questions for additional exploration.

  • "Intelligence for the 21st Century W..."

    Overall

    In his first book on emotional intelligence, Daniel Goleman focuses on education and how we teach emotional intelligence. In this book, the focus is on the work world and how critical emotional intelligence is for organizational success. Goleman reviews the five dimensions of emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and handling relationships) and lists 25 emotional competencies, highlighting which of those competencies lead to business success and which determine the success or failure of an executive.

    Throughout the book, Goleman supports his argument for the need for emotional intelligence, noting that organizations going through the greatest change need emotional intelligence the most and that EI accounts for ninety percent of what's required for effective leadership. Moreover, he lauds the concept of learning organizations because they increase emotional intelligence, particularly in the areas of building trust and improving communications and dialogue. He closes the book with the statement that lack of emotional intelligence is the corporate equivalent of a weakened immune system - not necessarily deadly but ultimately affecting productivity and competitiveness. In this day and age, it's not a situation that many organizations can afford to find themselves in.

In his phenomenal best seller Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman, Ph.D. mapped the territory where emotional intelligence meets I.Q. - where we apply what we know to how we live. In Working with Emotional Intelligence, Dr. Goleman shows why emotional intelligence has become the new yardstick of success for CEOs and junior hires alike. Also, in abridged.

    Story

    The Success Principles notes

    1) Use mind mapping to break down your goals

    2) Add the phase or something better when stating what you want.

    3) Take pictures of things you want to obtain. Example: Lexus LS and dream house etc..... Look at them everyday.

    4) Act as if you already have what you want it sends strong signals to the subconscious.

    5) The law of attraction - like attracts like things!

    6) Nothing happens until you TAKE ACTION - you can think all you want - Take action!!!

    7) Ready: Fire: Aim: - doing this in this order gets you into action. After you fire and see where the bullet landed - then read adjust your aim and fire again.

    DO IT NOW!!!

    8) Three keys to success:
    Being at the right place at the right time.
    Knowing you are there!
    Taking action!!!

    9) Failure is part of the learning process. Make mistakes - listen to the feedback - then correct.

    Hope this helps. Thanks Ralph

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    "I found this very boring book, w/ a few ok points"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The Happiness Advantage

    Happiness leads to greater success, not success makes us happy.

    Because top achievers like you are always changing and adjusting your goals, we create what Dan Sullivan calls “The Gap.” The GAP is similar to the horizon….you can keep driving forever, but you never get there. When we get to our “success,” we change what success looks like. As a result, most people don’t experience the true feeling of success; and if we have to be “successful” to be happy, we never get there.

    Our brains work in the opposite order. If you can raise the brain’s level of positivity or happiness in the present, then success rates rise. There is a new study in what’s called “Positive Psychology,” and it consists of studying why positive people consistently outperform the norm. So what causes people to be more optimistic?

    Meditating for 5 to 15 minutes a day will increase your happiness dramatically, just concentrate on your breathing in and out. Breathe in through your nose and off through your mouth. The in breathe should be shorter than the out breathe

    When our brains always look for the positives in everything the better you will feel, the more you concentrate on the negatives the more negatives you get.

    Just thinking about your favorite movie or happiest time in your life raises your endorphins.

    Our belief in another person life can bring that belief to life. We believe we can do more or when other believes that is when we usually do more.

    1. Gratitude: Our brain is similar to a single processor for experiencing the world. If we are processing all the negatives (stress, bad relationships, world news), then our brain doesn’t have the resources to create a better future. Focus on the good stuff!

    2. Social Support Level: This is the people you choose to have around you. Do the people around you support you with positivity? Research says that only 25% of success is predicted by intelligence and technical skills and 75% is predicted by social support!

    3. Seeing Problems or Stress as Opportunities. People who see potentially negative situations as opportunities or a challenge have more optimism than those who see the same situations as negative. Optimism creates positive results.

    4. Belief: Having the belief or faith that everything always works out like it’s supposed to provide optimism to everyday circumstances and situations.

    If you're expecting this to be a substitute for an MBA course, you'll be disappointed, and rightly so. If, however, you are looking for an excellent summary of a great deal of critical business, psychology and marketing concepts, that any aspiring entrepreneur or successful business owner should know, then this is the audiobook to get your hands on.
    It's 13 hours, but i'll still be giving it another listen in a few months or so, a testament to it's quality. Highly recommended.
