After listening to it, it's now at the top of my list.
Connecting with people...which we lack very much these days
When he started packaging his first book in his kitchen
Didn't cry, but it did feel like talking directly to me.
Get it! it's a one hour audio, simple, and to the point. keep it as a reference, listen to it more often, keep bookmarks at locations where you may want to reflect more.
Audible on My BlackBerry Z30. Life doesn't get much better than this.I usually go for Sci-Fi and business oriented books.
The book is a good refresher on leadership concepts for those familiar with the idea, and also works like a good introduction to the subject.
But keep in mind it is 65 minutes.
Direct and simple.
While I have read many books on the subject, Sharma articulates "Leadership" in a more succinct way--you get a lot for it being such a short read. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Robin Sharma always fill me up with energy and motivation to be a better person!!!!
I highly recommend this!
Say something about yourself!
I have been reading/listening to the same concepts for 10 years. We all need to keep hearing them over and over so that we do not take our eyes off the ball; he does a fantastic job at it, he is terrific. I would argue that we need more "how to" guides outlining proven concepts that can help you achieve results.
Not a story per say, I love his deliverance, I could listen to Robin for days; his deliverance energizes me.
no one. He does a terrific job.
The author spends the first 6 minutes just trying to convince the listener of why they should listen to him. I kept thinking, "Shut up and let your insights legitimize you if there are any." And, sadly, there are none.This is like any other self-help book out there. It's cotton candy empowerment techniques. Gems like "everyone's a leader" and "change is scary, but necessary" are things I'd read on Buzzfeed or some other shallow blog.For substantive insights into leadership and affecting people check out "The Power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg or "Switch" by Chip & Dan Heath. Leave Mr. Sharma to keep trying to legitimize himself.

I so enjoyed every min of this speech. Full of not only solid principles of leadership and business but points on how to put them into practice as well. Also tied extremely well into how core principles can not be surface or business deep, being your best whole person is how his philosophy teaches growth. I was excited to go find more by the author after listening. Time very well spent!
Robin shares a lot of great leadership ideas in a very short and concise framework.
Yes, but hoping it would be a bit more organized.
Narrator (Robin) was great from a delivery perspective.
Aspiring leaders who are incredibly driven.
Robin takes a shot-gun approach in this piece. He presents a lot of good ideas and concepts but does not develop them to the level where you can apply them to your career. The listener is encouraged to sign up to the web site and other fee-based materials so this work comes off as a bit of marketing. With that said, this work is worth listening to at least once.
I can't beleive this guy is considered a guru on leadership. I read a lot of books on leadership. Robin Sharma is all marketing. He has a ton of online content to sell. His concepts are very basic, including "say please and thank you."
Excellent for me, This book helped me a lot to become a better person :)
