The book was great, if you are looking to be a coach and build a team this information is great. It give you som much information on how you can be a great coach, what questions to ask that will make a good leader. I will recommend this audiobook to friends and lenders and realtors that I know.
Delivered in vacuous corporate Covey coach-speak. I found myself zoning out repeatedly, changing the playback speed from 1.25X to 1.5X and finally 2.0X to get through it. The coaching questions are good, though you can likely find them online. The author would've been better served by using actual dialogue rather than short situational summaries to relate client interactions.
Has great talking points not just for coaching but for interacting with friends and family. A book that can easliy be used as a guide to improve how people respond to you.
There was too much listing of information without enough compelling support stories or backgrounds information that might have been helpful in fleshing out the bullet points and making the memorable. it had its moments, but they were too few. I would probably rate it higher had I read a hard copy.
Eclectic physical philosopher, carbon free commuter, fitness consultant, personal trainer, non-medical nutritional counselor, yoga teacher.
I'll probably have to listen to this again. But it was well worth my time and I enjoyed it. The performance was very good and it provokes food for thought if you are in an environment that is not quite adopting these principles just yet. It provides a vision of how things definitely can be better.
This was a great read/listen. I would advise that you keep a journal or notepad handy while listening to get the most out of some of the action points that the author lists. Delivery style is not great but the content more than made up for it.
"Dry but worth using in long car journeys. "
Some key questions, nice amount of repetition. American accent. Executive mainly.
"Was not bad"
I was expecting more from a covey publication. The book is great for beginners. but so general for anyone who have a any idea of coaching. I think of you are looking for a big picture sort of book. This is a useful tool
