From the bestselling author of The Tao of Coaching comes a book on how to motivate and inspire others - and yourself! Motivation is much more than just a few words of praise. It is an essential skill which anyone can learn, and with which you can have an indelible, positive impact on yourself and others. Yet most of us are never taught this crucial life skill. In this book, bestselling author Max Landsberg fills that gap, providing simple tools, tips and techniques that really work. One of the key points of the book is, you cannot motivate someone else if you are not motivated yourself. Landsberg examines what it takes to motivate yourself, at work and at home, as the basis for inspiring and motivating those around you.

UK Kirkus Review »
This book tells the story of Alex, who fails to make it onto the board of directors and is left to cope with the consequences of his poor motivational style. This provides a starting point for a study of how to motivate others - even if you think you're already doing a good job, as Alex did. Interspersed between episodes from this case study are concise, hard-hitting sections which deal with specific points: stress, fear of success, personality types and self-talk, for example. The book also features some witty, succinct cartoons to illustrate its arguments. A lively narrative approach helps the reader to identify with the issues raised, but while the contents are interesting, the book recycles much of what has already been debated. (Kirkus UK)
