This is a great audiobook for the road. It turns hour-long trips into momentary experiences. I find myself pausing it often to stop and think before continuing.
I have hit the "back" button on the audible app more often than any other book I've listened to so far. There's a lot of good thoughts worth hearing twice.
'How to Win Friends and Influence People' meets the 21st century.
Life changing book! I’ve never known how to network, not because I didn’t know how to talk to people and ask open-ended questions, but because I didn’t like the feeling that I was using them. Judy’s excellent book changed my perspective, giving me “permission” to just relate to people without every interaction being a “sales call.”
With practical steps and a clear explanation of “why,” How to Be a Power Connector has opened a whole new world to me of seeking how to help others, especially through connecting them to each other for their mutual benefit. It’s almost become a sport to find people with needs I would have never thought of being able to help them with, then looking for someone I know who can help.
The section on being in the right room is worth the price of the book alone. Seems obvious once you think about it, but sadly, too much time is wasted talking to the wrong people for what you need.
I bought both the Kindle and Audible.com versions of the book and highly recommend them.
Judy Robinett has translated her own pathway to success into a trail that just about any of us can follow.
Concise and thorough, Judy speaks plainly and from the heart to lay out a practical framework for developing a powerful network of allies and friends.
Numerous quotes and real-world success stories from her own life and those of other high achievers give her ideas weight and make for a great listen.
Narration is spot on. I felt like I was listening to the author the whole time.
Listen to Judy. She will show you the way to discover your best genuine self and you are very much needed in the world today. Invest focused time and have the courage to act on her suggestions. Change your thinking, change your world and others world as well.--Ramon Bandong (Canada)
Judy has packed so many actionable tips in this book that I will be using it over and over as a resource for my consulting clients and as a much-read, highlighted and bookmarked reference book. She walks the talk and gives you true outcomes of actions taken. Obviously, I highly recommend it and for small to large-sized business owners and CEOs.
Thanks, Judy, for such a powerful book and for connecting with me through one of our own wonderful Connectors, Martin Shervington.
The information in Judy's book is wonderful. She keeps you engaged and provides superior tips to becoming a power connector! I will be listening to this again to make sure I implement her suggestions.
Hello from Sunny Singapore. I am Organisational Performance Consultant and I love Audible to the Max! It's been such a powerful tool!
Remarkable content and the voice over artist is so animated and interesting to listen to!
I really got excited to take action and to make my connector lists and manage my relationships more actively
That she gave me actionable items and strategies to manage my contacts
She was very upbeat, and read the words with energy
No, I needed to digest a few of these sections separately. a lot of value here
Book basically encourages business to follow the Golden Rule. Good advice but not original. Newest info is to apply the " Golden Rule" in a strategic fashion. Intentionally map out who you will add value to.
