Leadership is alive when it is used for others. It dies when it is all about you. Anyone can make an impact. All you need is influence—the most potent professional asset on the planet. The problem is that influence is also the most underused asset on the planet. And the primary reason is that the enemy of influence is a universal human trait: self-preservation. You guard your ideas, your status, and your reputation. Within your self-constructed walls you must cast safer visions, take smaller risks, and accept shallower relationships to ensure the security of all you are protecting. This is the downside of self-preservation: While your walls protect you and yours from demise, they also restrict your influence. You must break down your walls of self-preservation and sacrifice your security for the sake of others. Only then does the escalating paradox of personal generosity come into play: The more you give, the more you receive. This audio book shows that the key to effective leadership is learning how to influence in a way that engenders greater trust, stronger partnerships, and more impactful endeavors.

    " I liked this book, but in the sea of all the other leadership books available it shares common themes with many others. What was a bit different about this was the tipping point for this author was a major life event. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 4/5/2013

    " I enjoyed this leadership book, despite my slow reading pace. I attended a day of leadership presentations today so I had to finish this one before the sessions. The topic of influence truly being at the heart of leadership really rang true for me. "

    " No idea this book was going to introduce an idea I had never considered. I guess in Jim Collins language Kubicek was saying how to go from being a good to great leader. Influence! Very interesting book and really an interesting read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom | 4/4/2012

    " Good message, winsome writing, and the author has heart. But I could sum up the book in 2 sentences: 1) Don't be a jerk 2) Caring for others is true influence. The further I read, the faster I read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 3/5/2012

    " The author came and spoke to our team at work and he was far more thought-provoking than the book itself. I definitely walked away with some interesting thoughts on leadership and developing a team of people. "
