The 11 Laws of Likability: Relationship Networking... Because People Do Business with People They Like | [Michelle Tillis Lederman]

The 11 Laws of Likability: Relationship Networking... Because People Do Business with People They Like

We all know that networking is important, and that forming relationships with others is a vital part of success. But sometimes it seems like networking removes all emotions from the equation and focuses only on immediate goals… whereas the kind of relationships that have true staying power, give us joy, and support us in the long run are founded on simply liking each other. The worst thing we can do when trying to establish a personal bond with someone is to come across as manipulative or self-serving. Authentic connections go much deeper - and feel much easier....

Publisher's Summary

We all know that networking is important, and that forming relationships with others is a vital part of success. But sometimes it seems like networking removes all emotions from the equation and focuses only on immediate goals… whereas the kind of relationships that have true staying power, give us joy, and support us in the long run are founded on simply liking each other.

This book, featuring activities, self-assessment quizzes, and real-life anecdotes from professional and social settings, shows readers how to identify what’s likable in themselves and create honest, authentic interactions that become “wins” for all parties involved. Readers will discover how to:

  • Start conversations and keep them going with ease
  • Convert acquaintances into friends
  • Uncover people’s preferences and tweak their own personal style to enable engaging, reciprocal interactions
  • Create follow-up and stay in others’ minds long after the initial meeting

The worst thing we can do when trying to establish a personal bond with someone is to come across as manipulative or self-serving. Authentic connections go much deeper - and feel much easier - than trying to hit self-imposed business card collection quotas. This book presents a new paradigm that shows how even the most networking-averse can network…and like it.

    "Annoying speech pattern"
    Was The 11 Laws of Likability worth the listening time?

    I don't know if there's a name for the narrator's speech pattern, but IT IS SO ANNOYING. The first part of each sentence is okay, but he does something with EVERY last syllable. Like if the last word in the sentence was "end", he'd do something like "ennnNNNnndah"I couldn't listen to more than 10 minutes of the book.

    "Not sure about this one..."

    I hesitate to write this review as I have not finished the book. I don't know that I will be able to finish the book; the narration is so bad it is distracting and I honestly couldn't tell you whether the message of the book is good because I can't concentrate on it. I hate to say that, because it sounds terrible. But this is one book I wish I had not gotten on Audible! I may try to get a copy and read it. I'm sure the gentleman who narrated it has many talents, but narration IS NOT among them. His cadence reminds me of Thurston Howell III on Gilligan's Island. Oh well...

    "Narration is really bad."
    What disappointed you about The 11 Laws of Likability?

    I can't concentrate on the message at all because the narration is terrible.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michelle Tillis Lederman again?

    I don't even know. It is too hard to concentrate on the message in the book due to the poor narration.


    What didn’t you like about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance?

    The cadence is very distracting, to the point of not being able to absorb any of the content of the book.

    "Mostly drivel."
    What would have made The 11 Laws of Likability better?

    In my opinion, this book was mostly just platitudes... so

    "Superb book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Even if you think you know yourself well, this book will open your mind to some new ideas. I had a question during a 'test' I took at the author's website and she responded promptly, made sure I had received the results and made every effort to make the experience as easy and as positive as possible. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for a bit of insight into who they as well as how others see them. A positive experience all around!

    "Good book, bad narrator"
    What didn’t you like about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance?

    This is so painful to listen to. I don't understand how they didn't hear the way he reads this. I do like the content but I can't handle the way Erik ends a sentence.

    Story
    "Too repetitive"
    Would you try another book from Michelle Tillis Lederman and/or Erik Synnestvedt?

    It is a very simple and basic book with matter of fact comments, which in itself is not bad for an audio book way to long with way to little fact. If there is an Abridged version I think it would be good. I did listen to the lot as I think the points are valid just not the right length,


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michelle Tillis Lederman again?

    yes - just in audio format too long


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    no


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom after a while .

    "Very slow moving"
    Any additional comments?

    The author takes very long time to bring the point across. Very hard to listen to/follow.
