Item Description...
Dawna Stone is a unique woman - a successful athlete, executive, entrepreneur, and public speaker - who credits her incredible success to a simple formula: be nice and treat people with respect. Her refreshing, straightforward approach and insights inspire and motivate women to be themselves while succeeding in business and in life. Throughout the book, Dawna shows that being nice doesn't mean being weak or unable to get results. Using real-life anecdotes and actionable tips from her personal experiences, Dawna presents 10 steps that build the reader's interpersonal skills: Treat Others as You Want to be Treated; Stay Positive; Be Approachable; Let Others Talk, Learn to Listen and Ask, Don't Tell; Give Recognition; Be a Team Player; Be Professional; Take a Personal Interest in People; Avoid Arguments; Help Others Help Themselves. While showing how to put a positive spin on the toughest situations - including firing employees, sexual harassment, and negative coworkers - "Winning Nice" demonstrates how to build an empowered team and how to both lead and follow. Readers will reap almost exponential rewards as they progress through their business career just by being nice.

Fabulous Tips!  Aug 2, 2008
I bought this book after subscribing and enjoying Dawna Stone's magazine "Her Sports and Fitness". After reading her book about how she found her passion and how she achieved her success, I have even more respect for her. This book describes what the top tier of people do that gets them there; and its not about being bossy or sneaky or thinking only about yourself--its about making the extra effort and surrounding yourself with postive people and retaining your ethics. The part that stuck home was how she described three phases to careers and how non-traditional careers are; no longer do we climb a straight path up a ladder with one business anymore.
Nice is a Winner  Nov 27, 2007
If you're looking for a behind-the-scenes tell-all about Dawna Stone's experience on Martha Stewart's "Apprentice," you're going to disappointed. And that's a good thing, too, since Stone opts instead to offer some timeless advice about how to manage people and succeed in business without being the type of ruthless, win-at-all-costs person that's right out of reality TV central casting. Stone is at her best when she's talking about the challenges of her start-up magazine, the four-year-old Her Sports + Fitness, and I would have liked to have read more about that unlikely success story. She relies perhaps a little too much from familiar quotes and anecdotes from the likes of Ken Blanchard, Jim Collins, etc., and that's a shame since clearly she has plenty of her own material. It's tough at times to keep track of all of the many jobs she's had in less than two decades. Clearly this is an author who is always on the move up. Perhaps her next book will have more first-person material --and we triathletes wouldn't mind a little more insight into how Stone, an Ironman finisher, has used the sport to fuel her business success. Still, whether you're someone out of college trying to navigate the corporate world, a thirtysomething getting your first taste of management, or a first-time entrepreneur ready to take the plunge, you'll find this book invaluable.
Great resource to head start your career !  Oct 9, 2007
Recently I completed reading the "Winning Nice: How to Succeed in Business and Life Without Waging War" by Dawna Stone (Winner of the Apprentice: Martha Stewart and founder of Her Sports + Fitness magazine). Dawna brings in her myriad of experience and explains some real world situations and their solutions. Every chapter also has a sweet short ending summarizing the contents and listing the action points. Dawna also chips in experiences and success stories of some well-known names including Oprah Winfrey, Jim Marshall, Tim Wilkins, Bill Gates, Steve Forbes Cheryl Richardson and others. The book is divided mainly into two sections the basic seven skills to build your foundation and further tips and techniques to apply for a bright future in business and life.
The section of resume and interview preparation is very good in content. Recent graduates and job hunters watch out for this section. The best part of the book is that Dawna has done a great job of translating her experience effectively into words in a simple and consistent language. Instead of being very philosophical, the book explains some real world issues and their solution. The language is simple, consistent and easy to understand. Some of the success stories are well explained to clarify the point at hand. Dawna also has touched upon some social issues in work place like sexual discrimination. The only weakness I found was that the book sometimes become a little repetitive and stretches itself around the main point.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and should prove a helpful resource to head start my career next week.

Worker's Bible  Sep 20, 2007
Easily one of the best books on the market as far as applicable tips. People looking to be classier, kinder, more successful, more impressive at work should pick this book up and read it. The stories she tells and the tips she gives are easy applied to real-life scenarios. As a college professor, I was impressed and believe this book can lend a hand in finding success in one's career and one's personal life.

Unlike this book, so many other business & motivational books are full of fluff or obvious tips. This book had tips I had never even thought of - and some of these little ideas she shares could probably make the difference between a mediocre working experience and an incredible working experience. I'm glad I picked it up and feel like I now have a new set of tools to bring to work.

I also found her stories about believing in yourself to be quite inspiring -- I never knew some of these people had such rough starts before finding success.

Anyways, love this book.
Winning Nice is a winner!  Sep 18, 2007
Great book! I just finished reading this uplifting, easy-to-read manual of doing it right. I often found myself saying "yeah! That's a great idea. Why didn't I think of that?" and "I can do that!" Dawna and Matt offer practical advice and practices that we can all implement immediately.
I am an elementary school teacher and found the advice to be applicable both with my students and dealing with peers and supervisors. I have left a copy in our faculty room and encouraged others to read it. I may even try some of the suggestions on my husband ---but don't tell him!
