Why it matters who’s stirring the pot.
Only a few months into her new job, Nancy wondered whether or not she should have said yes to the CEO position at Soup, Inc. Sales were declining, bankruptcy and takeover rumors were swirling, and employee morale had never been lower. The company had lost both flavor and heat; and nobody likes lukewarm soup. How was Nancy going to turn it around? Sometimes the answer you need is right in front of you. On a lunch break, Nancy steps into Grandma’s Soup House, a little place she hadn’t noticed before, and happens upon an unexpected source of inspiration. New from the best-selling author of The Energy Bus and Training Camp, Soup tells the “stirring” story of how Nancy discovers the key ingredients to revitalizing her company, her team, and herself.
A recipe for success for anyone in any position, Soup delivers the powerful message that the quality of your career, business, and team is determined by the quality of your relationships. People are hungry for positive change and a fresh sense of purpose and passion. If you are ready to stir the pot and lead by example, Soup is a fun and engaging story that supplies you with the tools you need to build a winning team—at work, school, or home.

“There’s a common problem in business today. It’s a people problem…but maybe not in the way you would think. We spend so much time focusing on the bottom line that many fail to focus on the people who make the bottom line what it is. People matter and how we lead them matters. This is why I recommend Jon Gordon’s new audiobook. It provides the recipe for mobilizing and engaging a team.” (Chris Brogan, New York Times best-selling author of Trust Agents and Social Media 101)

The note from Kathrine about mentoring. It was a turn around mile stone.
Yes. I cried. The impact of it was wonderful. The story was touching.
I would compare it to a lot of John Maxwell's books as well as How to Win Friends and Influence People but in a condensed version with one story that you can visualize unfolding in front of you. I had lots of leadership training in my early 20's but took a break for about 5 years, so this is a wonderful refresher and bottom line to being an excellent leader and cultivating a positive atmosphere.
