"If you want to fuel your family, your career, your team, and your organization with spirit, listen to this audio book...Thanks, Jon, for pumping us up and making sure we get on the right bus." (Ken Blanchard, Co-author of The One Minute Manager and Leading at a Higher Level)
I loved this book. The tips are simple, yet relevant, doable, and sensible. Jon Gordon as the narrator works, he has an uplifted, energetic, enthusiastic delivery that fits with the book without going over the top.
Nothing new. A collection of worn out advice; "you need vision, focus, enthusiasm, purpose and love! plus few other trite advice. It's as though we have all been waiting for the author to tell us that to succeed you need enthusiasm! like there is a switch that you can just flick on!
Why anyone need to write a whole book when a small article would be an overkill is beyond me. Save your money and 3 hours of pointless listening.
Really enjoyed this book. The principles and story are simple and maybe some you have heard before, but I still think they are powerful. They have been put together in a fun and engaging fable. Also, I found the issues addressed rang true to real work situations.
I felt like this was a dumbed down version of a million cliches or "words of wisdom" that have been said a million times over. What?? You mean, if you have a positive attitude, those around you will respond positively?? How profound.. What??? You mean, we are all the "drivers" of our own "bus", and WE determine the "destination"?? Wow.. I really didn't need a cheesy story to illustrate these points for me, but I don't know; maybe some people do. I merely found it slightly insulting.
It was exactly what I was needing, when I needed it
It was put in a way that made it easy to understand, and a way that everyone could relate too.
I think so, he can tell it the way it is suppose to be said.
That a good positive mental outlook and positive energy will go a lot further than the opposite.
Insightful, Enthusiastic, Simple
Lead with Heart. God keeps breaking your heart until it opens. Every struggle, every challenge, every adversity brings you closer to your heart. To your true self, to who you really are..Sometimes you have to broken down to point you feel powerless, to discover your ultimate and true power.
Joy--the bus driver
Not worrying about the folks that don't want to get on my bus and removing the "energy vampires" from my bus.
I enjoyed the book and it was inspirational in the simplistic approach. And yes, the subject matter has been written about but always good to refresh your attitude, get inspired and stay positive.
This is a good audio book in this self-improvement and leadership category. It is part pep talk and in part a story told to illustrate some positive leadership principles.
Joy, the driver of the energy bus, had both wisdom and grace, as she helped our protagonist turn into a CEO (Chief Energy Officer).
I liked the rule of understanding your mission and communicating it to others.
It kept my interest and I laughed all the way to work
THE BUS DRIVER
It was the best leadership book i ever read.
The one minute manager, Who moved my cheese - It's a set of simple lessons wrapped in a story
If you have trouble with corny story based metaphors, you might not like this book. That said, it's a story that many can relate to. I'm sure everyone knows someone in this kind of position, maybe even is in the situation. There are a lot of good lessons in this short listen.
Definitely to be listened again, everytime needing an inspiring and uplifting, an effective tool for cheering up and fighting back.
"The Energy Bus"
Very easy listerning but memorable. The ten steps stay in your head and the personal motivational tools were simple but effective. I enjoyed The Energy Bus and would recommend to anyone needing to boost either themselves or their team.
