Achieving lofty personal and professional goals in life isn’t easy. And, as consultant and author Keith Ferrazzi argues in this compelling team-building manual, it’s nearly impossible to do alone. But find three like-minded, experienced and tough people who care about you, who tell the truth and who understand accountability, and you’ll attain your goal a lot easier – whether it’s losing 20 pounds, climbing to the top of the sales chart, avoiding conflict or giving up a detrimental habit like bragging. Ferrazzi details how to create a “dream team” to push you to the next stage – finding the right people, building solid relationships, setting goals and dodging pitfalls. Filled with relatable don’t-do-what-I-did stories from Ferrazzi, the book makes the whole process sound easy – perhaps a bit too easy. Still, this recipe for success seems to include all the right ingredients. getAbstract suggests this persuasive book to any ambitious soul who is looking to reach the stars with the backing of a dedicated team.
In this summary, you will learn
- What is the value and purpose of “lifeline relationships,”
- How to make those relationships work well by adopting four productive attitudes and
- How to create a team of people who will help you reach your goals.
