A well-written business parable which tells the story of Ben, newly promoted to Mergers and Acquisitions by his company, and in charge of securing the takeover of a chair manufacturing company, Allen and Augustine. Ben begins this negotiation thinking it's a win or lose situation. But then he meets the wise Aunt Elle, who teaches Ben that both sides can win if the negotiation is handled correctly.
This book is packed with lessons about Culture, Leadership, Negotiation, Integrity and Trust. Try doing business in the long term if you are deficient in any of these attributes. It teaches that business is about people long before a product or service ever enters the mix.
Ben begins by trying to win over the company. In the end, the company wins Ben.
Read it. You won't be sorry.
The book has a couple of storied links tying it to the authors book, The Go-Giver; which is also an excellent book written in the same novel style. We keep both of these books in our personal library of self-mastery books and use them both as part of our home school curriculum and as tools to help others discover self-mastery.
I'm in a "people" business & the practical applications of what is taught by these books are invaluable to the success of my biz. "It's Not About You" will be a asset in helping me continue to be others focused.
Thanks to both Bob & John for another amazing read.
