How many times have you heard someone referred to as a either being, or not being, a “people-person?” This term is used all the time to describe people we work with. But how do you become a people-person? Can you learn to be more people-oriented? How do you learn to deal with people who might be lacking in those relational skills?
John C. Maxwell has perceived the need for help with this type of relational issue and addresses it in his book, Winning With People. Some people are born with great relationship skills, but others have to work at learning how to improve this skill.
In Winning With People, John has translated decades of experience into twenty-five People Principles that anyone can learn.The People Principles are divided according to the questions we must ask ourselves if we want to win with people:
Readiness: Are we prepared for relationships?
Connection: Are we willing to focus on others?
Trust: Can we build mutual trust?
Investment: Are we willing to invest in others?
Synergy: Can we create a win-win relationship?
Every section contains valuable principles that, when put into practice, will help you develop essential relationship skills.
Relationships are at the heart of every positive human experience. Maxwell, a master communicator and relational expert, makes learning about relationships accessible to everyone. The most sophisticated leaders and salespeople will pick up on skills that will make them even better, and relational novices will learn skills that can transform them into relational dynamos.
