Every complaint represents an opportunity to turn something negative into a positive!
It's Tuesday morning and Hope walks into her office with puffy eyes, a swollen head, and a broken heart. But unfortunately, her company - EZ Tech - is in worse shape than she is.
The fact that their computer batteries are catching on fire is the least of their problems. Employees have been posting negative comments about management on blogs for the world to see, the media is attacking the credibility of the company, morale is at an all-time low, negativity is at an all-time high, and the stock price is sinking faster than the Titanic. As VP of human resources, Hope is charged with finding a solution to overcome the biggest challenge in her company's history.
In the process of battling her own adversity, she discovers the no complaining rule and other positive ways to save her company and herself from ruin.
In the spirit of his international best seller, The Energy Bus, Jon Gordon once again shares an inspiring and enlightening story that reveals a powerful way to tackle the biggest problem in business and life - the negativity that costs organizations billions of dollars and impacts the morale, productivity, and health of individuals and teams.
For managers, team leaders, or anyone looking to turn negative energy into positive solutions, The No Complaining Rule shares powerful principles and an actionable plan to win the battle against individual and organizational negativity. When you implement the no complaining rule, you'll spend less time and energy on problems and more time focused on solutions.

Negative thoughts lead to negative actions, and in today's economy, we all need to find the positive.
Simple to listen to. Interesting story to bring home the concepts. A great beginning to living a totally positive life. Makes the ability to start less daunting. Great ideas and examples. Nicely read and not over done. No fluff which turns me off so often. I would recommend it.
How things turned from so negative to so positive with a few easy adjustment and how simple the concepts are.
When her children were happy she was changing her attitude and joined in to participate.
Yes and it was the perfect book for a "One Sitting" read. No Fluff.
I want more self help books that are as enjoyable to read.
The book really made me think about how much complaining I actually do during a day. Even though I consider myself a positive person I have work to do and this book help point that out to me.
John should probably consider having somebody else read the book, but otherwise a great book with awesome learnings.
This book brings home what it means to be positive and to create success through positive thinking. Solution-focused people (instead of problem-focused) tend to succeed more often. They are also a lot nicer to be around.
Watching the turn around in her relationships. I also liked how her desire to learn gave her energy.
Tell us about yourself! Avid listener. Live close to the sea in California.
This book is told as a poorly written story and the narrator is overacting. The content offers nothing you can use in your business that you don't already know. It reminded me of Nancy Raegan's "Just say No" to drugs and that would solve the problem.
No. I will steer clear of this author however.
The narrator has an accent and the main character is a woman and a woman should narrate this story. The dialogue is poorly written so the narrator doesn't have much to work with.
The first half of the book. The only useful point is one that is stated in the last 10th of the book.
I regret buying this book and feel that I should have known it was a lemon from listening to the preview.
What a wonderful concept to make a positive attitude in both the workplace and the home! Great story! Thank you Jon Gordon!
