Absolutely, I know that it will be a regular go-back-to for many years.
Walter does a great job verbalizing the critical aspects of conversation tones, as well as emphasizing portions of the text to bring attention to the intended details.
I really started to get hooked at the "'Oh crap!' to 'Okay...'" section. The next few sections talk about how to connect with individuals and why connecting with those that you don't want to is just as important.
This book will change the way you interact with those around you - it will change how you reflect on yourself and how you aim to project yourself to the outside world.
Don't look at this title and think, "Yeah, yeah - another communication book." I've listened to countless communication, general relationship, and professional management books -- this book is golden and so much more than you'll expect. I'm even debating on buying the hardcopy just to have a tangible reference for the "checklists" he provides.
Very high - it provides a skill set that I am awful at and really has helped me as recently as yesterday while in a meeting!
Finding out that there are psychopaths in the board room helped me reaffirm that leaving certain companies was a welcome change. Giving Power Thank Yous was very memorable too.
No - but he is good!
Yes, but that was not really possible, plus this type of book needs to be re-listened to, to really understand the techniques and internalize them.
Since discovering audible I have become an avid "reader" I have been able to read more books than I ever thought possible, as I am dyslexic. I love self help, thrillers, sc-fi, so much more.
Yes I like the audio easy to listen to
Easy to listen to keeps interest
No extreme reactions
What we need
Must read for all managers
What most people fail to do
Same as the book
I'm a little fish in a medium pond.
concise, short, informative
Great book on how to listen and interact with people. I found it helpful for work.
This book intrigued me, but what I learned was beyond my expectations. And the performances was excellent as Walter was engaging and easy to listen to.
I have already started to implement some of mark's ideas with promising succes. Thanks for insit Mark!
There are insights in this book that I have taken with me to help me with my stress. While not all stories pertain, there are several good stories, exercises in the book that I listen to again and again.
The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
It all depends if you like hearing ways to improve your business, hearing examples of how some rich CEO can't get his workforce to respect him.
Honestly....I didn't finish it and even tried to listen a little more a few nights ago, it felt like I was back at work and hearing a training session.
Audiobooks have a different way of telling a story, he was good...I just had trouble staying attentive.
Nope...one version is enough (for me anyway)
If you don't like to bring your work home with you, but you feel like you need an attitude adjustment...give it a shot. It's 50/50.
This is a good book for anyone whether you are a high powered manager who wants to improve his/her management skill, or a dedicated employee who wants to get ahead or noticed.
The author has a way of getting the reader/listener to see themselves from the point of view of others and objectively assess what characteristics may need to be changed.
