The author shares his research in "high performers" revealing the secrets behind a successful business profile, particularly his findings about the differences between "firstborns" and "laterborns."

Publishers Description
Did you know that two-thirds of all entrepreneurs are first borns? That 21 of the first 23 astronauts were first borns? That 45 percent of female world leaders between 1960 and 1999 were first borns? Using these three factors, business leaders increased productivity and improved profits. This title includes a leader's guide.

Getting to the Basics  Nov 30, 2007
Using a leadership training program setting as the background for his story, consultant Tom Connellan teaches his Expectations-Accountability-Feedback leadership methodology to a diverse group of individuals. By using the story format, he is able to both convey the basics of his process and present `how to' implement examples that bring it to life under differing environments. While Connellan's three part methodology may look like common sense, it contains three underlying relational leadership themes that are often overlooked or not well understood in/by many other management training programs. These are:

* Expectations is about truly seeing people as positive possibilities - the Pygmalion effect
* Accountability is a forward, not backward, looking process - where are we and what are the actions required, not why did we fail (or succeed for that matter)
* Feedback is essential - positive feedback works best, but no feedback is worse than negative feedback. His, NO FEEDBACK = EXTINCTION equation is a wonderful way to express this.

The advice contained in this book is ageless, as well as priceless. It is as useful today, as when it was published in 2003.

Great bosses day gift!  Aug 8, 2006
Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (7/06)

New York Times Bestseller "Bringing Out the Best in Others" also teaches us how to bring out the best in ourselves. By applying the principles taught in the book to ourselves, we become better people and are more likely to accomplish our goals. We can use these concepts to bring out the best in areas of parenting, production, teamwork, and teaching. Three factors that need to be addressed to accomplish these goals are: we need to have positive expectations, we need to establish accountability, and, we need to provide feedback. Taking these three steps will lead to the goals being accomplished and the final outcome will be successful.

Connellan teaches you how these factors work, he gives you the tools to apply them, and shows you the structure to put them into practice. His writing style is very smooth and easy to follow. A lot of the book is written in a dialogue form so that you feel like you are actually sitting down and talking one-on-one with him. Connellan talks about how our expectations really can affect the performance of others. I think that this idea is so important to understand. As a teacher of students with disabilities, I need to remember not to try to affect my students by limiting them with my beliefs about what they can actually accomplish. Connellan says that if you expect the best in others, you will get it.

Accountability needs to be established so that others take responsibility for their actions. This should be done in a way so that it is positive and does not appear to be placing blame. Connellan wants you to use three types of feedback to bring out the best in
those that you are working with: motivational, informational, and developmental. He has found that using the combination of these three gets the results that are needed.

I highly recommend this book to parents, teachers and employers. Applying the principles listed here will motivate the people that we work with to do their best. If you are not one of these people, but you are involved with being on a team, this would be a great gift for your team leader or your boss. It would make a great boss's day gift!
Sales Management gem  May 23, 2004
I read this book on my last business trip. The principles inside are excellent keys to motivating a sales team. However, I also have used them on my family with outstanding results. Bringing out the best in others is a book that I wish I had read years ago. Over the next few months I expect to be happier. Not just from reading this book, but applying the principles. Why, because it reaps rewards back to anyone who understands and uses the three principles. As a national sales manager, I'm recommending this to anyone who works with a sales team. Although it will be a great addition to anyones library who wants to increase positve change in people and themselves.
An outstanding tool for motivating others to be their best.  Feb 23, 2004
I've read too many "self-help" and "help-others" type books to list, and this one honestly rates among one of the most useful.
I work not only as a marketing director for my company, but also serve in leadership positions in numerous professional, civic, and non-profit organizations, and across the board, one of the greatest challenges is in helping others to perform at the level which you know they are capable. This easily read resource imparts some great information, both in theory and in practical application. I've already applied just a few of the concepts with much greater than expected results.
In life, there really are only two motivational factors: love and fear. With fear, you will only go so far. This book focuses on bringing out the best in others, not just for what they can do for you, but for what they will then be able to accomplish for themselves. I strongly recommend it.
A simple story with a powerful application  Nov 11, 2003
I read this book with more than a little skepticism, even though it had been recommended to me by a trusted friend.

I found it to be way beyond my expectations. Reading this book (and now re-reading it) has transformed the way I intereact with my wife, my children, my co-workers. Highest possible recommendation.
