    Actionable, concise, contextual.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The One Thing You Need To Know...About Great Managing, Great Leading, and Sustained Individual Success?

    The difference between a great manager and a great leader.


    What about Marcus Buckingham’s performance did you like?

    At-ease style.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This book needs to be updated to no longer lean on Best Buy as a model of success. They're business has suffered in recent years and I suspect that even if Best Buy has high employee engagement, their failure to innovate is weighing heavily on their success.

    "Three things"

    It's one thing each manager needs to know, one thing each leader needs to know, and one thing each person needs to know to sustain individual success. Since I'm all three. There three things I need to know. Good stuff. Nothing really profound.
