"Profound...engaging...packed with insight. I couldn't recommend it more highly." (Stephen R. Covey)
Although I was reluctant to pick up yet another book on leadership, this one came highly recommended by my manager and was well worth the listen. Told as a story instead of a step-by-step how-to, the message comes through and really makes you think about how you can genuinely lead by example in your organization.
Very good book. Anyone who owns their own business and anyone who values personal relationships should read this book.
This is so simple, yet so profound. This book really spoke to me and helped me see my leadership flaws, especially in relating to people. I saw applications for my relationship with my wife and my children. It really was enlightening and I appreciate a co-worker recommenting it to me. The book was told in story form and the reader did an excellent job voicing the different characters.
In a very entertaining way, this audiobook exposes relevant values in how to make our lives more fulfilling. I recommend it.
I enjoyed this book as the material was thought provoking and can be applied in our daily interactions with those close to us. I only gave it three stars as the person reading the book played many different characters with very poor voice imitations, so it lost some credibility. But overall, it was a good listen and I might even listen again as there is some great insight into our behaviors that can be very helpful
The content here is a must for everyone. Among the best business/communication books I have heard/read. I am considering buying it for everyone in my organization. The narrator is fabulous and makes it a much better "listen" than "read" as he changes his voice to act out the various parts.
This book is actually one of the few I have recommended and relistened to. The story format makes it an easy listen. You can get the most of the book in the first two thirds, but I bet it will make you really think about your interactions with others and authentic conversations with them. Listen if your working to achieve more credibility with your peers or staff.
Worst buy from audible. I could not stand the different reading. It is like listening a play which annoyed me. The book just repeats itself , being in the box/out of the box and nothing more.
