Publisher's Summary

Here's a dramatically new way to understand the art of success.

Great managing, great leading, career success - Marcus Buckingham draws on a wealth of examples to reveal the single controlling insight that lies at the heart of each. 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 stock boys.

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.

    At-ease style.

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This book needs to be updated to no longer lean on Best Buy as a model of success. They're business has suffered in recent years and I suspect that even if Best Buy has high employee engagement, their failure to innovate is weighing heavily on their success.

    "Three things"

    It's one thing each manager needs to know, one thing each leader needs to know, and one thing each person needs to know to sustain individual success. Since I'm all three. There three things I need to know. Good stuff. Nothing really profound.
