    What did you love best about The Seed?

    3 hours of inspiration. Wonderful story telling. Great food for thought. It confirmed my purpose for my life. If you are confused about life, listen to this. You may not find the answer on what to do with your life, BUT it will help you find contentment and a better attitude to make the most of where you are at NOW and strive for better things.


    What other book might you compare The Seed to and why?

    Purpose Driven Life compacted


    What does Erik Synnestvedt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Time. I am a stay at home mom who focus is on developing the kids. So our car rides are when I can listen to the books that I want to get knowledge from. The voice was soothing.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to two of Jon Gordon's books this week and he's a great writer that uncomplicated things and brings our thinking back to common sense and simplicity. His positive attitude in his writings inspire you to be a better person.

    Story

    Only a few months into her new job, Nancy wondered whether or not she should have said yes to the CEO position at Soup, Inc. Sales were declining, bankruptcy and takeover rumors were swirling, and employee morale had never been lower. The company had lost both flavor and heat; and nobody likes lukewarm soup. How was Nancy going to turn it around?Sometimes the answer you need is right in front of you.

    What did you love best about SOUP?

    The story telling is awesome! I didn't want to stop listening to it. Inspires me to listen to more of Jon Gordon's work!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved all the characters equally! I felt like I could visualize them or even know them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The note from Kathrine about mentoring. It was a turn around mile stone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. I cried. The impact of it was wonderful. The story was touching.


    Any additional comments?

    I would compare it to a lot of John Maxwell's books as well as How to Win Friends and Influence People but in a condensed version with one story that you can visualize unfolding in front of you. I had lots of leadership training in my early 20's but took a break for about 5 years, so this is a wonderful refresher and bottom line to being an excellent leader and cultivating a positive atmosphere.
