Okay, I wasn't truly interested in the give away until I read your comments on what you appreciated about the book. I guess managing indeed applies to managing families, and those thoughts above were a gentle reminder!

So true about listening. Presenters believe that if they are asked to give a talk and the time allotted is 30 minutes that means they should talk for 30 minutes. BUT when a presenter only talks for 20 minutes instead of 30, the audience is happy. They have time to make comments, ask questions and digest what has been said. I wonder when the day will come that a presentation will be redefined as a dialogue, not a monologue with the audience. And time will be given for the dialogue and the listening to each other.

What a great idea for a book! When I teach classes, I leave time at the end for an open forum, and that is where I truly learn and grow the most!

Will add these tools to my group facilitation skills - the stories seems like a great addition.

Fascinating! I want to read it.

I appreciate how you highlight and champion others. Thank you for your perception of this author. I desire to read it.

Whitney, thanks for posting about Sonnenberg's book. Sounds like a great read. As you know, I'm big fan of points #1-3 that you share, although I know I have much room to improve myself in all those areas. I hope I'm lucky enough to snag a copy!

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
