Great review material
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.
I really enjoyed listening this. There was surprisingly lot tips what I would categorize as biohacks. Building some good habits, measuring effects and learning and again building ect. I'll recommend this book.
Scout leader who became interested in leadership building skills after Wood Badge.
Any type of leader needs to hear this information. Baseball coach to a CEO will benefit.
Dry. Narrator has grating white-man-of-authority voice. Not creative, expected better of narration and content. Would not recommend. there should be much better info out there, even from HBR. I felt like I was teleported to the 80s listening to this. HBS needs to live up to its rep as a forward-thinking school.
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.
The structure of chapter sections leads to a lot of repetition in narration. Very annoying.
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.
