betrayal opened

If you are like me, you’ve read many books on leadership and management. This is my latest listen and I learned and was reminded a lot.

That doesn’t mean the principles covered are all new. They are not. Some may be new and become a “light bulb moment” for you. But they are all presented in the authors’ own voice and includes their experiences you can only get here. Often, hearing an idea or principle described in a different voice and experience is what I need to really internalize it. That happened for me many times inside this book.

Since I do work from home I appreciated the numerous references to situations for those of us who do.

One of the highlights that stood out to me was the emphasis on listening, an often missing link in all human interactions.

I enjoyed it, learned from it, plan to read the physical copy I have in front of me and believe you will too.
