    There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

    Anthony K says: "Like the Muhammad Ali of Seth Godin Books"
    "My fav above all. Almost nothing more to add."

    Story

    I've been recommending this book many times since I attended Seth Godin's conference in Laguna Beach about 2 years from now. I read it a couples times and finally even bought the audio version, no need to say how I stick into it.

    Of course, I definitively give 5/5 as overall score. If I really had to find a negative point, the only thing I could say is that Seth Godin miss a bit in linking all the dots into a story. If in one way or another, he could develop the big picture like he tells a story, I think he could have even larger audience.

  • Start Something That Matters

    What matters most to you? Should you focus on earning a living, pursuing your passions, or devoting yourself to the causes that inspire you? The surprising truth is that you don’t have to choose—and that you’ll find more success if you don’t. That’s the breakthrough message of the TOMS One for One movement. You don’t have to be rich to give back and you don’t have to retire to spend every day doing what you love. You can find profit, passion, and meaning all at once—right now.

    "Great story (what remains is a bit too long)."

    Story

    Blake Mycoskie relates his own story of TOMS Shoes (based in Santa Monica). The idea behind his company is: you buy a pair of shoes and a new pair will be donated to a child in need of shoes. What I hold through is the art of his storytelling: he has been capable to deliver the power to his customers to spread his message.

    However I think that out of the 5 hours of listening, only the half got my attention 'cause the rest was not especially linked to his story- like business cases you've already heard a thousand times before. Despite this, Blake is passionate, down to earth and he never gives up so only for this, he deserves to be listened to at least once.

  • Getting More: How to Negotiate to Achieve Your Goals in the Real World

    Negotiation is part of every human encounter, and most of us do it badly. Whether dealing with family, a business or diplomacy, people often fail to meet their goals in every country and context. They focus on power and “win-win” instead of relationships and perceptions. They don’t find enough things to trade. They think others should be rational when they should be dealing with emotions.

    Story

    My opinion: Telling many anecdotes is fine, it's always good to hear some practical approaches but some of them are just too repetitive and systematic. Sometimes I had like 3 or 4 cases for one single "bullet point". Finally "Getting More" is not getting less because it helps to review some good old sales techniques but I won't give more than 2/5 as global rate.
