    Study after study confirms that career development is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving retention, engagement, productivity, and results. Nevertheless, it’s frequently back-burnered. When asked why, managers say the number-one reason is that they just don’t have time - for the meetings, the forms, the administrative hoops. But there’s a better way.

    Where does Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm on the fence on this one! The ideas are nice but overall this book is did not moved me like other audiobooks that I listen to.

    This is the first time I've listened to a book of this kind (management) so it's a bit interesting. But the narrator is really dry. I can easily mistake it to a machine trying to read a book.

    Why is this worth the buy?
    This is recommended in our company so I listened to it. This is important to our CEO so I have to read it and sort of get in his mind on how he sees professional growth.

    I found gems here like:
    Hindsight, foresight, and insight conversations. I like the tern mentworking and I found it really practical.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I think they have to re-record this book. They have to change the robot... sorry the narrator in this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hindsight, foresight, and insight conversations. I like the tern mentworking and I found it really practical.

  • Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average, and Do Work That Matters

    There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives listeners practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.

    Peter says: "START made me STOP listening fast"
    "Quitter is much better!"

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I love Jon's enthusiasm. It permeates throughout the book. The ideas shared are not all new but Jon delivered it with the right amount of punch.The hard part for me is that I've listened to Jon's book - Quitter and I loved it! I really enjoyed the things he shared in that book. So I am merely comparing the delivery and content between Start and Quitter. I know it's not an apple to apple comparison but I got more novel content in Quitter than this book. Quitter surprised me in many ways but Start only has certain "moments" of brilliance.Still Jon is very authentic and candid. I will still buy Jon's future books.

    Jon, if you are reading this please don't be affected by Critic's Math. :D

  • Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job and Your Dream Job

    "Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you’d love to do? I have. At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, 'I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.'"

    Mike says: "It passed the time, but lacked what I was seeking"
    "This book got me excited!"

    If you could sum up Quitter in three words, what would they be?

    1. Don't just quit your job.
    2. Fall in LIKE with the job you hate.
    3. Know when to quit your job.
    4. Quit your job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed how the author tried to connect to the listener. The "side comments" made me feel like I am getting more than the book.

    The first part really spoke to me. "Don't just quit your job." is the first advice of its kind. It's practical.


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

    Yes. I am listening to his other book Start. I think this one is better.
