Loosely tied together mix of old & older Articles

I did not like just putting a bunch of articles together that had lots of buzz words and examples and minimal research.

More distinction between articles

The articles selected are interesting. I found I had read a few of them before but it was fine to listen to the repeats again. My biggest complaint is the lack of distinction between articles. I wanted them to sort subject matter into groups or more distinctly state the title. The switch between narrators was fine, but after a few articles, I lost track of which one I was on since some of the subject matter bleeds together. Overall, it was fine but I wouldn't go out of my way to listen again.

meh

A hodgepodge of articles that make lots of secondary assertions (often conflicting) without sufficient background. a little arrogant in the approach.

Great Set of Reminders!

Would you listen to HBR's 10 Must Reads on Leadership again? Why?

Yes, I have listened to it 2 or 3 times already. The articles are great, short, to the point, and provide value.

This is worth your time to listen to.

Packed full of gems of insight, delivered in an engaging way. In my opinion what makes this unique is each piece is written with a sense of authenticity and respect for the readers time. In other words I learned how these leaders have all tamed their egos in a way that resembles each other - even though their content, opinions, and perspectives waver. This is why I recommend this purchase.

Meh?

Nothing original here. If you need to be told to try and be a good listener and have empathy for your employees for 6 hours then this book is for you

Faire un cercle ?

Je suggère trois étapes à mes camarades :

1- Acquérir chacun l'intégralité de la collection ;
2- En faire une excellente exégèse individuelle ;
3- Faire le point en nous rassemblant.

Un cercle plus élitiste ?
(Si on essaie de traduire les bidules : on a une preuve de niveau !)...

Remarque : il faut acheter les textes ; il sont disponibles sur Play Livres.
Personnellement je suis sur ma tablette ce que j'écoute sur mon téléphone (androïds).
