    Another extraordinary business fable from the New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni. This new book in the popular Lencioni series shows what it takes to gain a real and lasting competitive edge.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Getting Naked to be better than the print version?

    I am guessing it is. The story is easy to listen to and apply. If you are in a car on long drives the story has time to take shape.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Getting Naked?

    It is totally counter-intuitive that these people would start consulting rather than selling. The girl in the first part of the story was the consultant that I strived to become. What a change in the level of trust people feel! It is all about trust and vulnerability.


    Any additional comments?

    Tell the kind truth. You will need to hear the story to find out why. In 2 years my sales tripled from 1.5 million a year to over 4. I seldom bid jobs anymore. I negotiate. It is life changing.Thanks for teaching me how to fish.

  • Boring Meetings Suck: Get More Out of Your Meetings, or Get Out of More Meetings

    There's a big dull elephant in the boardroom: this meeting! Most of the millions of meetings held in the world today are a monumental waste of time and talent. Worse still, most of the so-called solutions and books for boring meetings are twice as boring. Boring Meetings Suck provides tips and tactics to deliver "Get-In, Get-It-Done, or Get-Out" style meetings, while also tackling what most prefer to avoid; that you don't have to BE in charge of a meeting to TAKE charge of a meeting.

    Would you try another book from Jon Petz and/or L. J. Ganser?

    Never.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Don't Know.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different script. Different speaker. Otherwise just fine.


    What character would you cut from Boring Meetings Suck?

    The speaker.


    Any additional comments?

    I was hoping it at least would be fun to listen to. The book is extremely tedious. It really took me by surprise. There are so many other Audible books that are worth the time.
    The book is so lacking in substance. Much of it is difficult to believe. I don't think that there was any research done. Lines like "buckle your seat belt and hold on to your shorts" are so over promising. I need to get some antidepression meds.
