"Narrating their own work, Marcus Buckingham and Ashley Goodall argue that much, if not all, of the flurry of activity and corporate lip service paid to performance reviews, strategic planning, and corporate culture is in reality counterproductive. Drawing distinctions between management and leadership, the audiobook explores nine generally accepted but arguably false theories. Buckingham's lighter and more lilting voicing is better suited to the task of narrating this business tome. His phrasing is solid, understandable, and workmanlike, easing the listener's understanding. The more quantitative research-based information is read by Goodall, whose deeper voice, a bit nasal and professorial, too often loses this listener's focused attention. The overall message here is to find ways to creatively and organically grow your organizational teams. W.A.G. 2020 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
