The Leader in You
Excellent training material
|von Dale Carnegie|
This book is an excellent training tool for the new supervisor. Far too many people are placed in a supervisory position with a five minute ceremony called "the promotion", yet they are never taught HOW to supervise people. If you want to teach the people responsible for motivating others on how to motivate, how to treat their staff and colleagues, and how to get along in today's business world, this is a great book.
Ingredients for Success
THE LEADER IN YOU is a blueprint for success. This book teaches you how to influence people. Most of all, this book reminds us all what motivates people to live in positive ways. Dale Carnegie lays out ways you and I can be inspired by values that motivate us toward goodness and higher aspirations in soulful living. This book will inspire more than success. It will move your heart toward living well in the world. -- Samuel Oliver, author of, WHAT THE DYING TEACH US: LESSONS ON LIVING.
A rehash mish-mash, very well done
Basically, not a lot of new concepts in here.
If you want the gist, it's How to Win Friends and Influence People, combined with Covey's Seven Habits for Highly Successful People, with a dash of Tom Peters thrown in for excitement.
This is a well put-together book, though. There are interesting examples cited, and these ideas can not be emphasized enough -- across the spectrum. Girl Scout Troop Leaders need this book as much as CFOs and sales reps.
All in all, worth a read.
