Book Description

16 Jan 2003
From the bestselling author of The Tao of Coaching comes a book on how to motivate and inspire others - and yourself! Motivation is much more than just a few words of praise. It is an essential skill which anyone can learn, and with which you can have an indelible, positive impact on yourself and others. Yet most of us are never taught this crucial life skill. In this book, bestselling author Max Landsberg fills that gap, providing simple tools, tips and techniques that really work. One of the key points of the book is, you cannot motivate someone else if you are not motivated yourself. Landsberg examines what it takes to motivate yourself, at work and at home, as the basis for inspiring and motivating those around you.

4.0 out of 5 stars This stuff really works 11 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
It helps you break out of the vicious circle we all fall into at some point. That circle has four steps: lack of confidence (1), leading to hesitation (2), then mediocre results (3), then poor feedback from yourself or from others (4), leading back to further lack of confidence (1). It really helped me to motivate my assistant, as well as myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical but fun 9 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Picked this up at Heathrow, and finished it as I landed in Madrid. The storyline (and cartoons) keep you interested, and the techniques do work - at least for me! The combination of fiction and instruction works very well

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of time... 15 July 2005
Format:Paperback
This book is really poor!
The Tao of coaching (same author) is really great and I was expecting another interesting book. However this one feels like an empty shell with long and painful explanations of very simple and arguable concepts that are nothing more than persuading yourself you are already motivated. And you will need a lot of motivation to read the entire book!
The very few interesting ideas were already described (in a better way) in his previous book. My advise is that this book is not worth reading, and especially if you have already read his other book: the Tao of coaching.
