Great book if you are a married American male with kids “A successful man is one who makes money than his wife can spend; a successful woman is one who can find such a man” This uote comes from the section of the book in which the author demonstrates that men and women are differentMy manager recommended this book to me so I diligently read it Examples are either based on American baseball facts American history husband father situations Through the book there is only a handful of examples portraying women female students in need of a man to be their better self a famous actress living a life of addiction and sadness The mention of the female Filipino president is about how she appreciates the author and his mentorship The only portrayed female who is successful on her own and doesn’t serve a purpose in connection with the author is a high school teacher Probably the only roles female are authorized to succeed in on their own in our society?Surely the topics covered are interesting but I wished my male manager had heard of a relatable source of inspiration for me Former pastor turned leadership guru John C Maxwell is known for his insight and experience when it comes to the business industry What I find helpful is Maxwell’s teachings are applicable to other environments such as church small groups and relationships His 2004 release Winning With People specifically deals with relationships uite freuently the mindset of the business world is “What can I do to get ahead?” or “How can I succeed?” Maxwell challenges the reader to think outside of the box and change his or her thoughts to “How can I help others succeed?” Read my entire review at There was a lot of good wisdom in this book There were also many examples and memorable illustrations I find John Maxwell's books easy to remember He puts his lessons in easy to process ways Some people don't like that but I think it's helpful I like John Maxwell but if your going to read a book on winning people read dale Carnegies How To Win Friends And Influence People If you already read the book and are tempted to read Maxwells book next don't Instead reread Dale Carnegie Very gentle approach to friendly kind ways to interact with others Discusses 5 central concerns readiness connection trust investment and synergy Lots of examples and uestions bring points home Readiness who we are determines how we see others know yourself first hurting people hurt people never hammer someone we can lift up or take people downConnection entire world except 1 is composed of others; put ourselves in our place not others; each person has potential to teach us something; people are interested in others who are interested in them; believing the best of others usually brings out the best of people; caring precedes confronting othersTrust foundation of any relationship; never let situation mean than relationship; when bob has a problem with everyone bob is usually the problem; being at ease with self helps other be at ease with us; when preparing for battle dig a hole big enough for a friendInvestment all relationships need cultivation; find 1% we agree on and focus 100% on it; journey with others is slower than journey alone; celebrate success of friends; take higher road when interacting with othersSynergy when we help others we help ourselves; people work well with others they like; working together increases odds of winning together; joy of being together as bottomline I've read other books by Maxwell There was a man in my church who suggested I read a book by John Maxwell I trusted his opinion so I did Then I decide to read another I read another and when this 'unofficial spiritual mentor' of mine asked me what I thought I was afraid to say anything Turns out he even believed if you've read one John Maxwell book you've pretty much read them all Epigraphs in the little book on teamwork include uotes by himself that was a turn off Other books I can't even remember the titles unless I look them up by author name I know he's popular and is considered a leadership guru He does offer a great deal of sound advice from years of experience as a pastor and leader He mentions having been mentored himself I believe he is a man integrity He's even funny at times However I won't spend time reading another leadership book by him I wasn't surprised when the author revealed that he is a devout Christian the takeaway from this short book is that if you will win with people if you are a good honest and generous person That's a better message than the list of psychological tricks I anticipated but I can't say I really learned anything new The non stop anecdotes felt a bit formulaic and some didn't make sense to me A man slipped another less fortunate dad 20 to help buy circus tickets So we should give others money in order to Win with them and make them like us? Not sure One word GAY This might be good for the touchy feel sensitive person but for me I could not stand to read this It mentions different strategies on how to deal with people and some principles behind it but the entire time I kept saying to myself TELL THESE PEOPLE TO STOP BEING SUCH WHINEY BRATS I'll take my advice from Jim Collins where he says that if you hired properly in the first place then you eliminate most of your people problems in the future Great book I learned uite a deal from it He touches on some important and useful life lessons in terms of relationships and daily interactions Read it if you don't easily take to people generally speaking or often find yourself in negative dysfunctional relationships And read it even if neither one of those applies I read this book with a group of people and we had a good time discussing the various chapters and pinpointing where we were strong and where we were weak Maxwell always uses great analogies and stories and his books are always filled with good lessons you can use later This book is no exception
