    Story
    (1302)

    Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

    What made the experience of listening to Good to Great the most enjoyable?

    Jim Collins really is enjoyable to listen to, the way he reads is the way he intended this book to be read, the passion and enthusiasm he puts forward during the read makes this audio engaging and exciting. I continue to listen to this over and over.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact based findings and how simple it is to see how companies make the leap from Good to Great.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen but I will be enjoying many more since having picked this up.

    The flywheel and the doom loop highlight some particular areas where I can improve as an individual

    Are there tried and true principles that are always certain to help a person grow? John Maxwell says the answer is yes. He has been passionate about personal development for over 50 years, and for the first time, he teaches everything he has gleaned about what it takes to reach our potential. In the way that only he can communicate, John teaches The Law of the Mirror: You Must See Value in Yourself to Add Value to Yourself, The Law of Awareness: You Must Know Yourself to Grow Yourself, and much more.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have recommended this book to several friends. John Maxwell at his best here. He explores the roadblocks to growth and why many people never overcome them. Each Law is concluded with an excercize to ensure that you recieve specific instruction through your own guided discovery of what steps need to be taken to ensure that you continue to grow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John himself, and the stories that he uses from his personal life are always fun and interesting to hear him tell.


    Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    John has a distinct style to any of his audio books, they have the feel of sitting across the table from his as they are read. Very easy to listen to, not diluted with complicated verbiage or technical terms. GREAT book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Become the best version of you
