    "You can't Manage - you must Lead"

    The first 1 1/2 CD's are about sales forces, and how to lead them, setting goals, etc.

    I don't lead sales forces, and I almost quit listening. I didn't like the reader's voice, and thought it "dippy". A bit like Zig Ziggler and Tony Robbins rolled into one.

    But one day I didn't have any other CD's, I was caught in bad D.C. traffic, so I went on through 2 and .....

    Disks 3-5 (and part of 2) are a wonderful set of stories about how to become self-aware enough to lead yourself, and thereby others. By disk four, I was so enthralled. I sat in the parking lot at work, and my driveway at home to hear the end of a point. I had to quickly turn it off so I wouldn't go through another one! I bought the book. (I bought multiple copies of the book.) I've listened to it again. I still don't like disk one much - I'm not a salesman. But I really enjoy this book.

    Buy it. If you aren't a "sales manager" use disk one to get used to his voice (it grows on you, and won't seem "dippy" after about 90 minutes). Then forget it. Grow with disks 2-5.

    To write this, I just went to the book to pick my favorite idea number (yes, there are truly 100). I thought it was #30: "Don't Go Crazy," but then I recalled 35: "Score the performance," and then..... you get the idea - every item here has something to offer.

    Get it!

    "400 Quotations and a few good ideas"

    This book might also have been named 400 quotations somewhat linked to 100 statements supporting about 30 ideas built on about a dozen techniques to motivate, along with some thoughts on time management, happiness, and leadership. But that would have been too long.

    Seriously, there are some excellent observations included within, and there's a good book lurking somewhere inside, but it's just too hard to find.

    This should also be a good example of the need for an independent narrator. For a book on motivation to be read in a long, droning, hang-dog fashion is just - unmotivating!

    I would also suggest for books like this that Audible mark the paragraph divisions better. The jump button doesn't deliver to the next of 100 items, but to somewhere way up ahead. And there will be times you will want to use it.

    The book is also repetitious. I suppose a case can be made that focusing, thinking about one thing, and concentrating are not the same, but really....

    In summary - Good observations, repetitious, and very loosely organized, delivered with droning narration.

    "Outstanding Leadership Book"

    As a CEO and Owner of a company, I think this book is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Short, concise, and to the point, this book concisely drives home what we need to do daily in our business lives. Anyone with employees planning to grow their business should get this. I loved it as an audiobook, and am now listening to it for the second time.

    "Always good sense"

    Steve Chandler does a good job of looking at attitudes, and reframing bad attitudes with useful ones so that the effort a person puts into something is productive. My only complaint about Mr. Chandler is that when is mimicing a person who is using faulty reasoning the tone he uses is both unbelievably irritating and at the same time condescending. He feels some of these people are whining, and they are, but ack. It's bad enough when people whine, but simultaneous whining and sneering is really hard to listen to.

    "If its from Steve Chandler, then you should listen"

    While you can be more effective in your own peace by motivating yourself as the first step, this guide does explore ways that you can influence others. Professionally done, worth the credit.

    "Good, in parts"

    This book is good in parts, and other parts are a bit trite. It relies on a few stories a bit too much - by the end of the book you're going to feel you don't care at all about some guy and his violin teacher but you've been hearing about them for a long time now - but often balances that by stating some obvious things that people sometimes don't say out loud and so they go unnoticed. You wouldn't be wasting your time here, but don't burn your last book credit on it either.

    "Great Listen . . . You MUST Listen"

    Great ideas and great stories to motivate those above and below you. This is not a book put together over a weekend to make a little extra scratch by an author with nothing better to do. This is a must read for anyone that has a business or personal relationship where they motivate others to complete their goals. This is my 10th Audible purchase and hands down my top one or two.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    since there is no way to mark books as read in the library I thought this might be a way to mark them

    "Good tips"

    Loved the tips, but it was delivered in a rather bland way. Certainly good content. Would just prefer more life in the narration.

    "A Surprise"

    Clean concise lovely, so nice to get a juice without the fluff, I normally hate these 100 or 6 or 10 bla bla, and I was a little annoyed that it was sales person oriented but the nuggets in there that work for other are such gems its worth every moment listening. I have now bought the book for myself and have given it to others, even use it to help coach managers in my team.

    "Great, no-nonsense, no frills advice!"

    This is awesome ? the tips are so basic they?re brilliant. For any manager that is wondering ?I?ve tried everything, what can I do? this is dynamite.

    This listen is a lesson in looking at yourself as a leader, a manager and a person.

    The delivery is so dry it?s WD40! For the UK audience it's great ? loads of sarcasm, irony and wit (god knows how the Americans understand the points that are made)! You?ll listen to the sample and think its ee-yore talking through the tips but trust me the delivery is sheer brilliance as the listen goes on.

    You get to the point where you wouldn?t want it any other way the irony is so succint. The Ziglar/Robbins uberenthusiasm just wouldn?t work with this material!

    Solid, basic tips delivered in a no-nonsense, frustratingly basic way.

    "Excellent - very motivating"

    I found this audiobook inspirational, so much so that I'm listening to it again immediately after the first listen. It kept me in an upbeat, positive mood all week, and I couldn't wait to get back in the car to start listening to it. Initially I found the narrator's voice a bit difficult to get used to but the content is so good I was soon completely absorbed. One of the best in my opinion.

    "The things you know you should do but don't!"
    If you could sum up 100 Ways to Motivate Others in three words, what would they be?

    Do this now


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a great reminder of what you should do, not just to motivate others, but to get more out of your business by doing so. I intend to listen to it again in the very near future to make some clear notes.


    Which character – as performed by Steve Chandler – was your favourite?

    N/A


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

    There were definitely some 'wake me up' moments to what I was doing wrong. But the most profound was 'Why focus all your time on the lesser performers when focusing on the higher performers gets more for the business?' Obvious really!


    Any additional comments?

    If you have a team of any size, listen to this book.
