Global Progression
I've listened to a lot of career-building audio programs over the years, and this one is absolutely one of the best. Most of them have a lot of good points, but they're either hard to remember or difficult to put into practice, but this one really made sense to me - I've listened to the full program at least 8 or 10 times. It's not as focused as other programs on success and goals, but rather on the importance of and techniques for improving creativity. It's also one of the only ones I'm aware of that emphasizes the importance of physical fitness as a critical component to a successful career.
The information and concepts delivered in this book are really valuable. However, I do wish someone else had read it. Mr. Gelb's voice and reading style is really annoying - which makes it difficult to listen to. He could talk about himself a little less as well.
I participated in Michael Gelb's seminar on Thinking Like Leonardo through my company. It was, by far, the best educational program I've attended. And, this CD serves as a wonderful refresher.
I just got done listening to Work Like da Vinci. It is brilliant with a presenation that puts you inside one of Michael's workshops. It has a rifle shot accuracy at thoughtfully addressing the most relevant needs for personal development in business in the 21st century! I offer my compliments to Michael on his ability to continuously build deeper content with greater and greater insights based on the work of Leonardo da Vinci. It is rare talent to be able to make sequels even better and richer than the original works. --Bravo Michael!
In this program, Mr. Gelb provides the listener with a unique experience and personal coaching that is valuable for everyone in today's competitive work environment. If you've had the opportunity to experience Michael Gelb's corporate leadership programs, this is a wonderful refresher! If you've not, envision yourself experiencing this program with your leadership team...then multiply your ultimate vision of coaching and team-building by a factor of 1000!
I waited a long time to order this (money!!!) I have loved his previous efforts, and really gotten a lot outta' them. This was fine, but kinda' a regurgitation of previous stuff. And, maybe it was me, not what I expected. Lots of memory exercises, then not applied to the topic presented. I know it sounds like I'm really unhappy with this,, but that's not the case. I catch myself quoting things from the presentation. It was just a little below what I've come to expect from Michael Gelb. (Having said this, I would still encourage you to get a copy, and form your own opinion! You may love it!). Anyway, thanks Mike for this, and all of your previous efforts. You really keep me thinking! Dave (in Colorado)
