Product Description

Review

"Goulston helps the reader to learn how to get through to anyone." "--Business Now Magazine" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

“Right now, there’s someone in your life you need to reach,” writes Mark Goulston, “but you can’t, and it’s driving you crazy. Maybe it’s somebody at work: a subordinate, a team member, a client, your boss. Or maybe it’s somebody at home: a partner, a parent, a defiant teen, an angry ex.”

If only you could get that person into a calm and receptive state of mind, you’d likely be able to work out your differences, whether they surface at the boardroom table or the dinner table. In Just Listen you’ll discover field-tested, powerful techniques for getting people to do what you want them to do. With Just Listen, the power to succeed is yours.

In most lines of business you can spot the losers complaining they just lost the deal, the job, the transfer or the promotion because it went to someone the boss knew, or someone the customer already had a relationship with. It was a stitch-up. It was so unfair. Why didn't they buy the best, or employ me because I was the best? Welcome to the real World. If you want to get on and be a success you need to know how to get on with poeple, what's on their mind, and how you can help them. To do that you'll need to start listening very well. This book tells you how.

Business and life is all about relationships. No relationship - no business. That doesn't mean that the business always goes to the insider - but when all things are equal, the business goes to the person the buyer has the best relationship with. And frankly you won't even get a hearing if you have no relationship.

This book will help. It's very good.

after i had ordered this i thought that maybe it had been a mistake to think that i would learn more about handling my super -critical, patronising 'my way of the highway' boss with this book (esp as i am a trained psychologist!). i was wrong. there are several strategies outlined that i hadn't thought of - and that sound pretty good- esp in relation to managing my own emotions when she flies off the handle (sometimes telling yourself to keep calm isn't quite enough even if you know shes going to apologise later!). i like the illustrative real life stories as well. i am getting to feel a lot more positive about dealing with and building a more positive rapport with the only boss i've ever failed to get on with - its reawakened my interest in trying to fix this if possible -and rather than move on now i've decided to have another go at reaching her using some of these ideas . watch this space and i'll update this review in 6 months.

I have read some books about active listening and they all have presented this skill through different listening theories, making it look more like a medical or analytic approach. This book is different. Not only it makes you understand how to listen to the others, but it teaches you something much more important: how to value the other persons in your life (boss, lover, friends, etc) It explains all the process through an empathetic approach by making you understand why it is so important to listen. Congratulations Mark, great book!

Format: Hardcover
Being the life of the party won't help you make a sale. In fact, letting other people take the spotlight will actually garner more admiration and eventual "buy-in," explains psychiatrist Mark Goulston. This advice follows his axiom, "be more interested than interesting," which is one of his nine principles for connecting with others. Goulston, who has trained police officers and U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation hostage negotiators, devotes a chapter each to 12 powerful techniques you can use to be more persuasive. His systems and strategies will help you cross the natural barriers people erect to protect themselves, so you can communicate your ideas and goals. He fleshes out each lesson with real-life examples and engaging stories. getAbstract thinks you'll find this book quite helpful in refining ways to "get through" to others. If Goulston can negotiate with a desperate gunman, he surely can help you sway a customer - or even your teenager.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER on 23 April 2015
Format: Paperback
The communication process that Mark Goulston introduces in this book (first published in 2010) can help almost anyone get to almost anyone else who would be otherwise inaccessible. Dorothy and her friends were advised to follow the yellow brick road. Goulston advises his reader to follow the five-step "persuasion cycle." There won't be any flying monkeys to worry about but there may be distractions so focus on the basic nine rules he identifies and master the twelve "quick techniques" he recommends.

In essence, this is how the process should go: Convert the given person(s) from (1) resisting to listening, (2) from listening to considering, (3) from considering to willing to do, (4) from willing to do to doing it, and (5) from doing it to being glad they did...and will continue to do so.

These are among the dozens of passages of greatest interest and value to me, also listed to suggest the scope of Goulston's coverage:

o The Persuasion Cycle (Pages 7-10)
o The Secret: Getting Through Is Simple (10-13)
o Amygdala Hijack and the Death of Rational Thought (16-17)
o Mirror Neurons (19-23)
Note: You may wish to check out Gregory Hickock's The Myth of Mirror Neurons: The Real Neuroscience of Communication and Cognition.
o How Well Do You Know the People You Know? (41-43)
o Why Does "Feeling Felt" Change People?
