The principles in this book are very impact file, genuine and brilliantly summerised, I worked for businesses that have leaders with similar values and others, and I can never describe the joy of working by the principles Jim describes in this book.
Very well done. I'd love to hear more about this subject.
And the narrator is unbelievable (turns out to be the author himself) delivers the content, with impactfull emotions, giving you the experience of living the stories and the passion.
Pretty Solid Book but didn't blow my hair back. Lots of Awesome information and enjoyed the Leadership part of the book and about growth. But overall the Inspiration of the book to get me excited for the day and SMASH my business as a whole wasn't there. But there is some good info in there.
I have so many tools to use after hearing this book. and I'm not convinced I would have gotten through it reading. It's data heavy, but Jim's reading style was engaging and deliberate.
Helpful summaries at the end of each chapter, entertaining metaphors, and the data to back it up.
The years have proven this as just sort of a correlation vs causality confusion. Many of the companies are now defunct or bankrupt. But this is more like a horoscope in that it is generally true for everyone.
Not likely unless if found that he changed his philosophy.
very insightful read, very well-researched and evaluated. Jim Collins does a great job explaining some of the unexplainable aspects of success and failure within Fortune 500 companies. A great read for any level, good for anyone who is willing to improve their Career Success.
I love business books, particularly those about businesses that succeed, so "Good to Great" was right in my wheelhouse. It had even been recommended to me by several friends. Those friends must not have listened to the audio book. Jim Collins, you may be a great author, but sometimes it is better to hire a professional to do the reading. Jim's nasally voice and overly-expressive delivery get old very, very quickly. I pushed on, but only got about halfway through the book before I couldn't take it any more. I tried again six months later and still couldn't do it, making it about halfway again. If the material were more compelling, perhaps I could do it. But the combination of Jim's delivery and the material just didn't work for me.
