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!
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.
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.
