Courage Goes To Work is an amazing book. Just by reading it has helped me gain much more confidence in myself. When I was reading the book and trust me I hate to even read but when I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. It was as if the author was talking about me. It tells amazing stories and is a great purchase for someone that wants to make new challenges in their life. You will not regret buying this book. I have read it twice and I know I will read it a 3rd time once I get it back from a friend of mine that barrowed it.
Courage Goes To Work - I loved this book! The title is what grabbed me first, as the workplace is one place we definitely need more courage. Bill is a terrific writer. His style is motivational, easy to read and powerful in its simplicity. As well, Bill is humble and approachable in his delivery, and I identified with him through struggles, triumphs and principles throughout this book. I love to learn, read and gain knowledge. I am years behind in the number of books I want to read, and articles I want to research. Choosing what to read next is not often easy for me. I am so glad Bill's book made it to the top of my list, and I think you will be too. I highly recommend this entertaining, motivating and action oriented book. Read it and put the ideas and strategies to work immediately - you will be glad you did!
Great book. Bill is a motivational writer using real world examples that hit home. Once you answer the holy question "What do you want?" read this book to figure out how to get it. A quick read that empowers you to do the right thing and get what you want. A guide to building your own strength and getting people to follow. A book I will use for reference for a long time.
I have read many management books, and I have an even larger stack to get through. Bill's book was sitting I my pile until it struck me one day that this was the next book to read. Rather than plodding through it like so many others, I was really struck by the message - get out there and do it, and support your team as they do it too. Bill's style is clear and uplifting without being preachy; insightful without being pedantic. The stories highlight his points, and underscore why Bill is such a great coach and author - he lives what he teaches every day. I am already applying his ideas with my own team, and I look forward to seeing their achievement.
COURAGE GOES TO WORK: HOW TO BUILD BACKBONES, BOOST PERFORMANCE, AND GET RESULTS tells how to handle people who are comfortable with routine and resist changes. Such works fail to exert themselves over what is required and do just enough to keep on top of their jobs, thwarting forward momentum in a changing business environment. COURAGE GOES TO WORK lays out a step-by-step program for strengthening and encouraging courage, and is a pick for any business library catering to managers.
I loved this book! It is beautifully written and powerful in its simplicity. Consultant Bill Treasurer is a credible witness to courage - through powerful examples of personal struggles and triumphs and those of his clients, he provides a roadmap to use in taking risks. Concepts like "caging the tiger" and "jumping first" will remain with readers long after they close the cover of Courage Goes to Work. Make this your gift to every leader you know.
Bill Treasurer is an author who definitely knows his subject matter. Treasurer pulls on his experiences in both business and his personal life to provide a useful framework for building courageous teams and organizations. His style is edgy and at times deeply personal, delivering authenticity and page-turning readability. The framework of Try, Trust and Tell Courage makes it easy for leaders to identify how to help their team stay motivated, engaged and creative. I highly recommend this book.
Bill's book is an easy read. It offers real world approaches in how to face risk with courage in personal and business situations. Bill shows us how to face challenges with courage and faith in one's self. Bill shares his own experience and allows readers to see how he faced adversity in his personal and professional life. I found the book to be very motivational and encouraging. This book offers real world, practical applications and tools and lessons to take away for immidiate use.
