Lessons from the book.Real winners succeed by learning the needs of other people, than appealing to those needs Thomas Aquinas said, When you want to convert a man to your view, you go over to where he is standing, take him by the hand and guide him The art of motivation is the heighting of emotion It is appealing to the unconscious than the conscious The best way to appeal to emotions is by talking about people, their struggles, conflicts and eventual triumphs.Carl Jung said, When we uncover t [...]
Great info The book was sectioned off in bite sized chunks, which helped me stay interested, and I was pleased to find the author applying a lot of his principles to parenting I rated it only 4 stars not 5 because it got a little dry at times But all in all it, I really liked the material the author s well placed ancidotes Good read for anyone in the workforce or the stay at home mom like me.

Overall, I m really glad I read this book It was a little unfocused at times, but I got a lot out of it The twelve rules were fantastic
I loved this book, possibly because I too believe in positive reinforcement Imagine people being so happy to go to work because they are treated kindly, with respect and recognized for the good they do, what an impact that would have I highly recommend this book for anyone who manages people Put the exercises into practice and enjoy watching the results.
What a great book This was the 1985 version too THere is a 2004 printing but i dont know if theres any difference I think as a teacher and coach I will read this book once a year and i hope I can incorporate the book into practice A great book if anyone wants to learn how to become better at motivating others and one s self
Although this was certainly an easy read, the book could probably be just as effective with half the text Each chapter presents sensible methods for leading, working with, and otherwise interacting with others successfully A book I will reference in the future but only for the chapter headings as a brief reminder.
This is very good to read Bringing out the Best in People How to Enjoy Helping Others Excel is one of the best books to help other people This includes great information about motivating and encouraging other people to excel their bests as they go on with their lives I highly recommend this book
I read this author s book, The Friendship Factor, many years ago I found this on a discount table, and as a lifecoach and mentor am always interested in taking advantage of a bargain if it will hep me help others This book was filled with common sense, nothing flashy or trendy just good basic ideas for helping people succeed that never go out of style.

Virtually everyone is a motivator in one way or another when we re persuading a friend to lose weight, or giving a pep talk to our kids, or trying to help a batter out of a slump The 12 guidelines in this book are quite simple, and they can be mastered by anyone Alan Loy McGinnis
This book covers so many aspects of helping get the most out of people not for self, but to help them It gives the leader lots of tools as well as to how to keep themselves in the right place mentally to be an optimal leader.
One of my favorite quotes from this book You do not have to be Pollyanna to succeed as a leader But you do have to have a powerful commitment to your goals and your group You must be able to keep going when others get fainthearted, to throw away the clock until the job is done pg 170
This book is really good for anyone who wants to motivate and lead others I ll be reading it over and over again I m sure A good one to study and learn.
Great book even better second time around Challenge yourself to give that extra 10% it just maybe the difference that causes you to win Vince Lombardi

Good for managers and leaders
Great concept on how we should treat people, but I found it way too dry for my likingI just can t get through it.
This book is great for business and family I ve read it twice and starting a third time
This book looks at ways that you can help to support others.
Some good ideas, but overall less than I expected
This is what life is all about Helping others excel I loved this book
What an amazing book to read right before a new school year There s so much applicable material in here It s also great to have on hand for quick a reference.
A very easy read that is as helpful for being a manager as it is being a parent Great advice and ideas.
This book is priceless Truly an amazing work that demystifies helping others.
I highly recommend this book not only for leaders, but for whoever want to influence and have a strong impact on the people around them to do better.
