    Inhaltsangabe

    When the landmark best-seller Flawless Consulting was first published more than three decades ago, it was quickly adopted as the "consultant's bible." With his legendary warmth and passion, Peter Block explained how to deal effectively with clients, peers, and others. The book continues to speak to people in a support function inside organizations as well as to external consultants.

    This thoroughly revised and updated third edition of Peter Block's groundbreaking book explores the latest thinking on consultation. It includes new insights about how we can organize our consulting around discovering the strengths, positive examples, and gifts of the client organization or community. The book remains a practical and specific guide for anyone who needs to develop a capacity for deeper relatedness and partnership - which means it is for all who wish to make a real difference in the world.

    This new edition covers the consulting challenges that have arisen from the way we routinely communicate electronically and live in the virtual world. Block suggests ways to overcome the distancing and isolating effects inherent in electronic connects. The book also includes practical guidance on how to ask better questions, gives suggestions for dealing with difficult clients, and contains expanded guidelines on more engaging forms of implementation.

    Flawless Consulting includes two new examples, taken from health care and educational reform efforts, to show how consulting skills can be useful (and often transformative) in a broader context. These illustrative examples point the way for achieving changes for leadership in business, government, religion, human services, and more.Like the first two editions, Flawless Consulting affirms the notion that authentic behavior and personal relationships are the key to technical and business success. By demonstrating their ability to be truly authentic at each step in the process, consultants can aim toward creating workplaces that are more collaborative and ultimately more successful.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Surpasses the high standards of relevance, clarity, and wisdom characteristic of previous versions... Whether one's consulting experience spans five years or fifty, there is a great deal in this new edition to prompt us to reflect on our own practice and to discuss with colleagues." (Roger Harrison independent consultant and author of Consultant's Journey: A Dance of Work and Spirit and The Collected Papers of Roger Harrison)

    awful style of reading out

    You can't bear listening to that manner of reading. At least it was impossible to me.

    Wenn nur der Sprecher nicht wäre...

    Würden Sie dieses Buch einem Freund empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?

    Das Buch an sich ist ein fundiertes, spannendes, umfassendes Werk zum Thema "Consulting" - aber der Sprecher hat eine derart übertriebene Sprechmelodie, dass das Hörbuch zur Qual wird. Schade!!!

    Great book with a bad narrator

    The book introduces and guides through a great, well structured framework for flawless consulting. Even if not implemented fully, it is full of good ideas, ready for transplantation into one's professional practice.

    However, the narrstor is often difficult to follow. He has a very annoying manner of almos extinguishing his voice emission at the end of each sentence. He reads and intonates the text in a way it was not intended, making it hard to understand and forcing frequent repetition.

    I suggest to check the sample recording to find out if you can put up with this style or should you switch to the printed version.

    Great book, but terrible narrator!

    The choice of narrator here is spectacularly misjudged. This is a book on consulting, but the speaker has little authority or depth in his voice, and especially sounds like he has little leadership experience. (for a narrator it's only necessary that he/she SOUNDS like they are fit for the task).

    Beyond this, I hear a lot of self-consciousness in the narration, which I find really distracting.

    Worst of all, the narrator has this painful habit of adding a sound to the end of most words, which I find deeply affected. Like a bad auctioneer.

    Really, I'm not sure who decided that this person should be a narrator, and if I were Peter Block, I would be mortified that my wisdom and experience were being relayed so unpalatably and distractingly.

    I'm off to see if I can get my money back, and read the book in my own voice!

    Vielleicht als Buch gut aber Hörbuch nicht auszuhalten

    Ich kann leider die Geschichte nicht bewerten, denn ich musste abbrechen. Die Art zu reden vom Sprecher war nicht für mich über eine längere Dauer zu ertragen. Er geht immer am Ende von Wörtern runter mit der Stimme und hört sich dann weinerlich an. Ein consultant mit so wenig power in der Stimme, hätte sicherlich Schwierigkeiten seine Punkte mit Bestimmtheit durchzubringen.
