“Most people just laugh when they hear that the secret to success is giving. . . . Then again, most people are nowhere near as successful as they wish they were.”
 
The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. Desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees sim­ply as the Chairman.
 
Over the next week, Pindar introduces Joe to a series of “go-givers”: a restaurateur, a CEO, a financial adviser, a real estate broker, and the “Connector” who brought them all together. Pindar’s friends teach Joe the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and help him open himself up to the power of giving.
 
Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving—putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives—ultimately leads to unexpected returns.
 
Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a classic bestseller that brings to life the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.”
 
Nearly a decade since its original publication, the term “go-giver” has become shorthand for a defining set of values embraced by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Today this timeless story continues to help its readers find fulfillment and greater success in business, in their personal lives and in their communities.
 
This expanded edition includes the text of the original business parable, together with a foreword by Arianna Huffington, a new intro­duction, a discussion guide, and a Q&A with the authors.
What is the one quality that all successful people have in common?

They have mastered the art of dealing with people!

Let this book show you how to:
Achieve your goals Handle the human ego Become a master conversationalist Make others feel good about themselves And much more!
Skill
with people is the one essential ingredient for success and happiness
at home and in business. "The Art of Dealing With People" gives you the
skills to take your people skills to a level that you never thought
possible!

Skill in human relations is similar to skill in any
other field, in that success depends on understanding and mastering
certain basic general principles. You must not only know what to do, but
why you're doing it.

As far as basic principles are concerned,
people are all the same. Yet each individual person you meet is
different. If you attempted to learn some gimmick to deal successfully
with each separate individual you met, you would be face with a hopeless
task.

Influencing people is an art, not a gimmick. When you
apply gimmicks in a superficial, mechanical manner, you go through the
same motions as the person who "has a way," but it doesn't work for you.


The purpose of this book is to give you knowledge based upon an
understanding of human nature: why people act the way they do. The
methods presented in this book have been tested on thousands of people
who have attended my human relations seminars. They are not just my pet
ideas of how you should deal with people, but ideas that have stood the
test of how you must deal with people. That is, if you want to get along
with them and get what you want at the same time.

Yes, we all
want success and happiness. And the day is long past, if it ever
existed, when you could achieve these goals by forcing people to give
you what you want. And begging is no better, for no one has respect for,
or any desire to help, the person who constantly kowtows and literally
goes around with his hand out, begging other people to like him.

The
one successful way to get the things you want from life is to acquire
skill in dealing with people. Download now and you will learn how.
