Publisher's Summary

We live in digital time. Our pace is rushed, rapid-fire, and relentless. Facing crushing workloads, we try to cram as much as possible into every day. We're wired up, but we're melting down. Time management is no longer a viable solution. Managing energy, not time, is the key to enduring high performance as well as to health, happiness, and life balance.

The number of hours in a day is fixed, but the quantity and quality of energy available to us is not. This fundamental insight has the power to revolutionize the way you live your life. The Power of Full Engagement is a highly practical, scientifically based approach to managing your energy more skillfully both on and off the job.

At the heart of the program is the Corporate Athlete training system. During the past decade, dozens of Fortune 500 companies have paid thousands of dollars to learn the Corporate Athlete training system. So have FBI swat teams, critical care physicians and nurses, salesmen, and stay-at-home moms. The Power of Full Engagement lays out the key training principles and provides a powerful, step-by-step program that will help you to:

  • Mobilize four key sources of energy
  • Balance energy expenditure with intermittent energy renewal
  • Expand capacity in the same systematic way that elite athletes do
  • Create highly specific, positive energy management rituals

    The Power of Full Engagement provides a life-changing roadmap to becoming more fully engaged on and off the job.

      "Don't waste your money"

      This book is the worse i have read. Its all about self promoting and the authors don't appear to be sincere. It seems like they don't come to the point but instead talk around the problem. I was very dissappointed.

      "Not worth the time"

      Repeats many self-help tools that have been around for years. I recommend skipping this one.

      "i say it is worth the money.."

      well, this book gives a lot of info. combined from other self-help books (IMO), but fail to address things very deeply, but you get a concept about what they are trying to say. in essense, it gives you "ideas", but fail to guide you through a step by step process, and it is because this book has too many "ideas", such as meditation, self-cultivation, personal spiritual meaning, work out theory, ..... etc. which, you can only get a glimpse of each subject. and for a length of a book, with these many topics, there is no way to get a good understanding with out seeking for external help,(such as going to their website, and maybe sign up for their programs, etc).. which I think they are very commercial.

      "Fantastic book"

      I sincerely enjoyed this book, there were so many little tidbits that got me thinking about changes I can make to how to do things. I will certainly listen to this again in a few years.

      "Can't wait to listen again"

      I listened while working in my art studio and was sad when it ended. I will be listening again. I liked it as well as the book Essentialism by Greg McKeown (hope I spelled that right.)

      The book makes sense to me. It's read in a linear step-by-step application.

      "It was ok."

      For some reason I was expecting more from this book. I felt as if the stories sounded similar. So, i got a bit bored. We are encouraged to create healthy habits, routines and manage our energy better. But I JUST finished the book and didn't feel as if I got a lot out of this book. Again, it was ok. Just not a WAO for me.

      "Not as good as the book iteslf"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      No. The audio book seems to be missing a lot of content of the book itself. At least 2/3s of it. I was quite disappointed. It is more of an overview of what the book is about. The book itself is fantastic by the way!


      What do you think your next listen will be?

      not sure yet


      Did the narration match the pace of the story?

      yes, the narration was fine.


      Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

      No. I was looking forward to listening to the book while driving. The book itself has a lot of important content and examples the audiobook is missing.

      "Engagement is about managing energy."

      The most powerful message of this book was to realize what you control and to focus on creating results based on the actions that you control.
