Relationship Mastery

I have really found Relationship Mastery simple to read with great tips to use. I love the before and after pages that summarise how we can positively move forward with relationships, using the techniques in the book.

I first read the book straight through over a few days and used highlighters and pens to scribble all over the key parts for me. Relationship Mastery is one of those practical books I keep picking up when I need some inspiration on improving my ability to manage a particular situation.

Over the years I have attended many courses covering topics such as NLP, body language, twice completed Myers Brigs personality type MBTI and also completed the VAK learning styles assessment. I have learned to use peripheral vision and meditation and many more techniques. Why David's book has been so great for me is it has pulled all these different modalities together in a simple and usable way. While reading this book I have had several Aha moments! This is a book I can now pick up and dip into quickly to support me in my dealings with other people.

Relationship Mastery is a book that is of equal benefit to someone like me who has attended many courses or equally you may be starting out and looking for techniques to use to improve your personal or work relationships. Either way this is a must-have book. My copy seems to have found its way to the shelf with my frequently used cook books and in the short time I have had my copy, it's looking well used!

Format: Paperback
David Fraser's book is refreshing in many ways. It is a very readable and well laid out approach to understanding the methodologies involved in communicating with others and enhancing the quality of our relationships. More than that though it moves into areas which many writers tend to shirk from, especially those whose work involves dealing with business leaders, professionals and organisations generally. The last chapters, titled Balance, and Love, together with the subtitle "Finding inner peace" of the third from last chapter move into deep and very personal territories and do so in a compelling way.

The quality of our relationships, at work, at home, and the inner relationship with oneself are fundamental to achieving and maintaining a sense of belonging and fulfilment in most people's lives. Yet, as with so many important aspects of human existence how to achieve and maintain good relationships is neither taught much or well, if at all, in our education establishments, nor is it something we are born with. In fact the reverse is true. Some of our most basic instincts in life, and the most powerful ones, are concerned with self-survival, competition, egotism and status. These self-centred paradigms are the opposite of what David offers in his book.

It would be useful to be born with the contents of Relationship Mastery in our minds. Given that we can't have that the next best thing is to get a copy and start to apply the lessons in this important book.

David Fraser's passion to share his deep experiences of what he's learned about getting on with people, whether it's at work, at home, with friends, or even with people we don't much like makes compelling reading. His practical approach, straight forward style and use of personal examples makes this a very accessible read. Fraser asserts that most personal development training which focuses on ourselves means we will never get beyond the surface and ultimately won't get what we need. His book is different; it focuses on relating well to others in order to meet our own needs. A simple, yet powerful message, and one that we don't often think of. I found the clarity of writing outstanding and do believe that by following the stepped approach laid down in this book we can all be successful in all our relationships. Whether you are new to the material or not, you will learn something from this book and enjoy reading it at the same time. A rival to Dale Carnegie!

Fascinating book - refreshing and insightful. In so many ways David raises awareness of the noise that creeps into our interactions and how in very practical, meaningful ways we can make relationships be more meaningful and straightforward - a rich resource of ideas, experiences and advice to delve into...

This is a great book that's well formatted (eg, with use of illustrations, 'steps to take' & lots of real life, practical examples). It is very readable and a great reference facility that is easy to access and simple to follow.

Although I already have several books (and professional experience) covering change leadership, NLP, etc, Relationship Mastery showcases a 'systematic approach' for developing your skills, self-awareness, competence and confidence. David has skilfully highlighted and connected steps, techniques and concepts that are workable for any one of us, supplementing them with his own professional expertise.

This is a very practical book that makes a lot of sense, so should be very accessible to a wide cross-section of people. It's a book that I read from beginning to end (I don't always!) and have then dipped into on a regular basis! I regard it as a 'toolkit'; my post-it markers are evidence of that.

I highly recommend it.
