    This is the promise of The Advantage, Patrick Lencioni’s bold manifesto about the most unexploited opportunity in modern business. In his immensely readable and accessible style, Lencioni makes the case that there is no better way to achieve profound improvement in an organization than by attacking the root causes of dysfunction, politics, and confusion.

    Where does The Advantage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I only wish I'd read this book years ago. I would have been a better and more effective team member.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the information and stories.


    What about Patrick Lencioni’s performance did you like?

    Good narration - didn't realize it was the author until now.


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

    Didn't laugh or cry but came away feeling I wouldn't like the discomfort of these exercises.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book - excellent analysis but I didn't always agree with his solution.

    You’ve got a business colleague who’s hostile...a client who’s furious...a staffer who’s deeply cynical—how do you get people to do what you want in tough situations like these? In Just Listen, veteran psychiatrist and business coach Mark Goulston reveals the secret to how to get through to anyone, even when productive communication seems impossible.“Here's the challenge,” Mark says.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Just Listen to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is better because I can listen again. I'm already listening the second time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The book was my favorite character. I wish I'd read it when my kids were young - no doubt I would have been a better father. It's not too late to be a better husband which I already am because of this book.

    I learned that until now I almost never listened. I still forget and revert to pattern but when I do listen its powerful.


    Which character – as performed by Walter Dixon – was your favorite?

    Probably the personal assistant protecting her boss.


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

    Listen and take control.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read many how too books over the years and this on is among the very finest. The reason is these techniques are so powerful you immediately discover their utility and you start to use them with confidence. Also, you recognize and appreciate when they are being used on you.

    I accidentally stumbled on a situation years ago where the just listen approach works like magic - government-to-government listening sessions. I sometimes just listen for hours. But I didn't know what I was doing really but I knew it worked. The first session after reading the book took half the time and the tribe was even more pleased than usual. As the book talks about I found the loose bricks and asked the right questions. I am even more excited and confident than ever in my work.
