Amaizing simple description of how to make people happy at work, how to effectively manage employees. Written with simple understandable language, it will make you want to practice all those techniques right away. Very motivating
If you have only one take-away from this book (and there are many great pearls), it is that positive reinforcement is determined by the result, not the intention. Just because you think it is a positive reinforcement or encoragement, in the eyes of the receiver, it might not feel that way. I wish I'd read it much, much earlier in my career.
this is a great book - it's a different way from looking at management from many other business books, which tend to emphasis who you are more than what you do. it gives ideas that you can implement immediately. easy to understand. highly recommended.
Learning how to stop supporting bad behaviors
Yes but who da hell has 4 hours to sit and listen to a book?
Seriously if you are a manager of any sort, please listen to this book. Take note of how to properly motivate employees and NOT give to the whole group while not pitting employees against each other.
Majorly love the section about goal setting.
If I can sum it up, be the change you want to see in the world. great book. I wish the narrator was not so monotone though. he needs more inflection and variation in his speech.
this book will change your life and how you treat people!
The content of this book is great but holy cow the narrator needs to drink some coffee or something. It was pretty hard to focus while listening to the monotone voice.
Great book, the narrater did a good job but his voice was not pleasant, reminded me of a trailer for a murder mystery. I learned a lot from this book however!
See "Hiring for Attitude" for a similar approach, but applied to hiring and culture building.
