This is a great book for anyone involved in professional services. It gets to the heart of what makes client relationships rich and fulfilling.
The story line is believable and not overly sappy. I'm not a big fan of the business fable genre but I loved this business fable.
Woren does a great job of story telling. I will look for him again.
I found myself looking for things I could do so I could get in more listening time. Had I read the book in print I think it would have gone down in one sitting.
The story was almost like reading fiction but with a purpose and learning from every line and scene. Such a great approach to business learning.

Being vulnerable or Getting Naked as Patrick Lencioni calls it, in his best-selling book Getting Naked, has some surprising benefits in building customer trust and loyalty. This is an excellent book for anyone who must quickly build trust with people as part of their job. As an agile coach, I find this book to be an excellent guide in how I can build the trust and loyalty that I need as I coach individuals, teams, and corporations to get the most out of adopting an agile methodology.
This book is an easy and enjoyable evening read, presented as a business fable or story about how Jack Bauer, a business consultant, learns the secrets of his nemesis, Michael Casey.
The story takes the reader through the journey in a highly entertaining but educational trip, that leads Jack into understanding how Michael’s consulting firm has been able to out gun his firm by being more vulnerable in overcoming three common fears that most of us have. The fear of losing the business, the fear of being embarrassed, and the fear of feeling inferior.
I particularly like how the last chapter summarizes the lessons learned in a very simple but effective way. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who must quickly gain the trust of clients or other individuals such counselors, doctors, most sales professionals, business consultants, and of course agile coaches.
The story pulled me through, just as well written creative work can do. The plots main resolution felt like a Jerry McGuire spinoff, and too good to be true (?). But the naked consulting principles were well developed in the story and hit me right between the eyes. I'll probably be thinking about these during my next client meeting later today.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this. It was recommended to me by a friend who works for a large consulting firm, and I wanted to understand his thoughts on consulting.
This book challenged me to lay aside those things that cause me to lose clients and alienate individuals.
