This book got some good advice on how to discover the skills you already have and when you discover what you have, the book tells you how to improve your performance. YOU Already Know How To Be GREAT is a great book to read, it provides an easy to follow guide of how to achieve success in work place, in school and even in real life.
When my husband, working in a university as Guidance Counselor, saw me reading this, he was instantly interested in reading the book too. We both read the content of the book and enjoyed discussing them. The author used a lot of examples and provided explanations too. We both liked the principles pointed in this book and definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to improve performance in any area of life.
About the book:
"In trying to improve-on the playing field, in the office, or even at home-most people seek out new information to get to the next level. They read a book, attend a class, or hire an expert to give them an edge.
But Alan Fine, an accomplished tennis, golf, and executive coach and a renowned authority on peak performance, believes that this "outside-in" method is precisely what's holding you back from doing your best work. He's found the biggest obstacle to improved performance isn't not knowing what to do; it's not doing what you already know. Ironically, the quest for information and instructions designed to help you get ahead can often interfere with your ability to focus on doing something.
Fine reveals his simple and proven approach to achieving breakthrough performance. It starts with reducing the interference that blocks your potential through an amazing process called G.R.O.W. (Goal, Reality, Options, Way Forward).
No matter who you are or what you do, You Already Know How to Be Great will help you eliminate what is standing in the way of your goals." www.amazon.com
