One of our new titles has received a great response from the online community, so this week we thought we’d put our spotlight on Full Engagement!: Inspire, Motivate, and Bring Out the Best in Your People by Brian Tracy.
Tracy is obviously a world-class empiricist and diehard pragmatist, almost totally obsessed with understanding what works, what doesn’t, and why…then sharing it with various audiences. His approach is informal but highly-disciplined. His role is that of a personal mentor/coach to each reader.
I love the feeling of being inspired so I looked forward to reading Brian Tracy’s book – Full Engagement – Inspire, Motivate, and Bring Out the Best in Your People. Brian Tracy is one of the most prolific motivational speakers of our day. He really understands psychology. He bases his work on research. This book like his others is no disappointment.
Patricia Faulhaber wrote this on Suite 101:
Tracy has written another one of those books that should remain on a manager’s desk so that he or she can revisit the information again and again. Really good managers recognize they are nothing without their people. Working with their team to make them the best they can be will always result in a manger being successful.
Greg Rollet of Rock Star Lifestyle Design called Brian Tracy: “one of the leaders that I look up to in this space of project management.”
Overall, Brian Tracy’s body of work is phenomenal; his profoundly positive impacts upon many are important; his self-made story is inspiring…. Mr. Tracy delivers a worthwhile, relevant, engaging presentation.
Some entrepreneurs, on seeing all this, will decide they have no interest in being a manager. They should voluntarily bow out early, to start another business. Others will get pushed out, with some pain, by investors who see the need for a new team to lead the growth stage. Even more painfully, too many others won’t bother to change their style, resulting in everyone being unhappy, and a business that stagnates, or even fails.
I recommend the book for any manager who wants to learn how best to work with an employee to: build up his/her self-esteem, build his/her self-image, drive away his/her fears, or make him/her feel like a winner.
Jason Jacobsohn wrote in his review on Networking Insight:
Full Engagement! will teach managers how to become more effective and engaged with their employees. If are you serious about becoming a better manager, then this book may be worth a read.
