Publisher's Summary

You can make a difference! Believe it or not, the most effective way to make an impact on the world is to make an impact on individual people. How do you do that? Through influence. In How to Influence People, leadership guru John C. Maxwell and his friend Jim Dornan tell you how to make a positive impact on every person in your life, from your children and coworkers to your customers and the barista at the coffee shop. How to Influence People will empower you to become a potent and positive influence in the lives of those around you without using a position or title.

By “pouring your life into other people” (Dr. Maxwell’s definition of mentoring), “you can truly make a difference in their lives.” And when you make a difference in the lives of others, it makes a difference in your life too. Learn to perceive the stages of influence in your relationships and skillfully navigate your progress from perfect stranger to helpful confidant, to inspiring mentor and multiplier of influencers. Let this audiobook impact your relationships, great and small, and make you a positive influencer and better leader in the lives of those around you.

Good stuff

It was good but maybe I had higher expectations. Easy listening. It's good to listen to little chunks at a time to let the material sink in.

For Newbies

This book could've been named don't be a jerk. I could see it as a great asset for brand-new managers, but for me I didn't get much.

not all that it should be

What disappointed you about How to Influence People?

Reviews hyped it up more than it should be. I'm not half way through the recording and I can't help but think . This is why it is only $5.00 to buy. That's all it is worth.

Would you ever listen to anything by John Maxwell and Jim Dornan again?

Not if it's anything like this book.

What didn’t you like about Van Tracy’s performance?

Who? Sleep zone!

What character would you cut from How to Influence People?

The book.

Any additional comments?

Sorry to buy so negative, but I wish someone would have influenced me to not buy this book.
