    "Oldies But Goodies"
    If you could sum up HBR's 10 Must Reads on Managing Yourself in three words, what would they be?

    Great review material


    Any additional comments?

    After 25 years in management at a Fortune 500 company I was familiar with the messages these 10 articles delivered. Each of them offers tips and techniques that when culled to address my personal needs create a map that allows me to be more efficient and effective. I was disappointed that I had not researched the topics well enough to understand the most of the material wasn't current research. It's still very applicable in many ways though.

    "Essential Listening for Leaders and Aspiring Leaders"

    The content within this audio book hit important topics such as understating ones strength and weakness, understanding the basics of emotional intelligence in order to better manage your work. The monkey discussion hot the nail on the head. Get the monkey off of your back. Delegate and coach subordinates. Much more great topics. Must read.

    "Narration is highly repetitive and annoying"

    The structure of chapter sections leads to a lot of repetition in narration. Very annoying.

    "Some good info but really nothing new."

    Nothing earth-shattering in this book. Some good info but mostly rehash of basic business principles and theories on behavior.

    "The Self, Goals, and Building Relationships"

    Good specific applications. Numerous case studies reveal the power of relqtionships and success. Great examples of how using a mirror both helps and hurts decision making. ultimatly, trust, teamwork, and quality relationship building create environments where success is more the norm than the exception. Emotional intelligence seems to have finally overahadowed cognitive intelligence.
