Publisher's Summary

Leadership guru John C. Maxwell and his friend Jim Dornan share their straightforward, effective way for making an impact on the world: make an impact on individual people. How? Through influence. How to Influence People will empower you on your journey to becoming a potent and positive influence in your relationships both great and small. 

By pouring your life into other people, which is Dr. Maxwell's definition of "mentorship", you can truly make a difference. And when you have a meaningful impact on the lives of those around you - from your children and coworkers to your customers and the barista at your favorite coffee shop - it makes a difference in your life, too.

You'll learn to perceive the stages of influence in your relationships and skillfully navigate your progress - from perfect stranger, to helpful confidant, to inspiring mentor - until, ultimately, you attain the highest honor there is for an influencer: becoming a multiplier of other influencers.

Skeptical, tight on cash and I have no spare time...

I have zero cash to waste, zero time to spare and I was not sure if this app was worth buying. I have many J M books and plan to buy more but carving out the time to sit down is not realistic. I spend so much time on the road for my job. I crushed this book in 2 days. ( That gives you an idea of how much driving I do. ) This was an awesome buy and a great use of time. I look forward to hearing many more.

Good stuff

It was good but maybe I had higher expectations. Easy listening. It's good to listen to little chunks at a time to let the material sink in.

This is a must read book for aspiring leaders

If you are a supervisor or manager and are struggling with getting the team motivated this is the audiobook for you. Also, if you are looking to mentor someone I'd strongly suggest getting a copy of this book.

For Newbies

This book could've been named don't be a jerk. I could see it as a great asset for brand-new managers, but for me I didn't get much.

Good

I give this audiobook 4 stars because although it’s got great content, it may actually go on for longer than it needs to due to its repetitiveness. It’s still very much worth a listen for a different take on influence, especially if you haven’t read/heard many pieces on the subject before.
