Great managing, Great Leading, and Sustained Individual Success
Marcus Buckingham offers a dramatically new way to understand the art of success.
With The One Thing You Need to Know, he gives readers an invaluable course in outstanding achievement — a guide to capturing the essence of the three most fundamental areas of professional activity: Great managing, great leading, and career success. Buckingham draws on a wealth of examples to reveal the single controlling insight that lies at the heart of each. His great gift is his ability to cut through the mass of often-conflicting agendas and zero in on what matters most, without ever oversimplifying. As he observes, success comes to those who remain mindful of the core insight, understand all of its ramifications, and orient their decisions around it. Lose sight of this “one thing” and even your best efforts will be diminished or compromised.
Success comes to those who remain mindful of the core insight, understand all of its ramifications, and orient their decisions around it. Buckingham backs his arguments with authoritative research from a wide variety of sources, including his own data and in-depth interviews with individuals at every level of an organization, from CEOs to hotel maids and stockboys.
In every way a groundbreaking audiobook, The One Thing You Need to Know offers essential performance and career lessons for businesspeople at all career stages.
