من أروع الكتب التي قراتها و غيرت مجرى حياتي حقًّا أنصح كل من يمرون في
مرحلة مفصلية في حياتهم بقراءته
أذكر أنني قرأت هذا الكتاب عام 2006 بعدما حصلت على شهادة البكالوريوس و كنت في تلك المرحلة التي يشعر بها كل خريج و هي:ماذا بعد التخرج؟
وقعت عيني عليه في جرير و بدأت في قراءته و كانت كل صفحة فيه تبث في روح الأمل و الإصرار
الأمل و الإصرار هي العبارتان التي أصف بها هذا الكتاب لكل من اهديته لهم

الكتاب يحمل أحداثا واقعية ، قصص نجاح كان سببها الأمل و الإصرار و تحدي النفس و رؤية بعيدة لا يؤمن بها من حولك...more

كتاب ملىء بالنصائح في فن القيادة والإدارة
مقتطفات من الكتاب
فن الاستماع مهارة ضرورية

! استمع استمع استمع
عدم معرفتنا بأهمية مهارة الإستماع تؤدي بدورها إلى سوء الفهم الذي يؤدي إلى تضييع الأوقات
والجهود والأموال والعلاقات التي يمكن ان تزدهر


الإستماع ليس مهارة فحسب,بل هو وصفة أخلاقية يجب أن تنتعلمها
إننا نستمع لغيرنا لا لأننا نريد مصلحة منهم لكن لكي نبني علاقات وطيدة معهم


عليك أن تستمع بإخلاص لمن يحدثك,تستمع له حتى تفهمه لا أن تخدعه أو تلتقط منه
عثرات وزلات بين ثنايا كلماته,استمع وأنت ترغب في فهمه


لا تجهز ا...more

Taught me that everyone can be a leader! We just have to change our mindset and mentality, identify out leadership strength, balance work and leisure, control our worries and energize our life, become a team player and strenghten cooperationamond associates, achieve our goals and increase our self-confidence! Good book indeed~

This book did one thing for me: got me to clean my office and keep it that way. It is less helpful than it could be. It ended up just being a few nuggets of wisdom interspersed with numerous tales of successful people being successful. It was rather unhelpful and I didn't bother finishing it.

Chapter 1: Finding the Leader in You

Charles Schwab was paid a salary of a million dollars a year in the steel business, and he told me that he was paid this huge salary largely because of his ability to handle people. Imagine that! A million dollars a year because he was able to handle people! One day at noontime, Schwab was walking through one of his steel mills when he came across a group of men smoking directly under a sign that said No Smoking.
Do you suppose that Charles Schwab pointed at th...more

A book that I did not read voluntarily; I was managing a business and the corporate headquarters decided to send all of us to a seminar based on this book. I note with a little amusement that I might have given it another half-star were that not the case. However, it's an effective book, and contains a lot of good and practical advice that people in leadership positions ought to know (and you'll find as you go along that most of the people you've encountered in life in such positions really coul...more

Despite the wealth of technical advances in the 1990s workplace, managing, motivating, and communicating remains a challenge. The Leader in You adapts the simple, time-tested management theories of Dale Carnegie to this high-tech environment with refreshing results. Read in an engaging but direct tone, the tape's pace is varied with excerpts from recent management studies and anecdotes from contemporary business leaders. It's a sound introduction to leadership skills for anyone working in the pu...more

Working in a managerial level, dealing with people from all walks of life and staying in a highly pressurized job, reading Dale Carnegie makes my look at life in a wider perspective & acceptance of people for what they are...
Lisa Carlson
I really enjoyed this book. Although, it was meant for a more professional audience, I felt the tips were useful to anyone who wants to be a more likeable person. I highly recommend this book.
Fathimah
Sebenarnya buku ini bagus bgt seperti buku-buku Dale Carnegie lainnya. Tapi karena isinya 'cuma' pengembangan dari buku-buku Dale sebelumnya (yang dah ku 'hafal', jd aku agak bosan bacanya.. :D

هناك فرق بين القائد و المدير فالاول ملهم و مبدع اما الاخر فهو جزء من الهيكل الادارى .
اافضل ما فى الكتاب الامثله خصوصا اى بى ام,كنتاكى و والت ديزنى كتاب ايجابى و اسلوبه غير اكاديمى.

Tons of information. Ideas on how to be a better person/leader.
Ștefania Ioana Chiorean
Printre capitole:
Identifică propriile tale calităţi de conducător.
Începe să comunici. (Comunicarea se construieşte pe relaţii de încredere)
Motivează-ţi oamenii. (Motivarea nu poate fi niciodată impusă, oamenii trebuie să vrea să muncească bine)
Exprimă-ţi interesul sincer pentru ceilalţi.
Priveşte lucrurile din perspectiva celuilalt.
Învată să asculţi. (Nimeni nu este mai convingător decât un bun ascultător)
Formează-ţi echipa de mâine. (Oamenii care muncesc împreună pot realiza lucruri extraordinar...more

Dobra, jak inne w tym stylu :) Pewnie wszystkiego nie zapamiętam, ale kilka rad na pewno.
Cytaty które przykuły moją uwagę są bardziej takie ogólnie pozytywne niż do tematu książki, ale i tak przytoczę:

(s.168)
"A gdy sobie coś wyobrazimy, potrafimy zabrać się do dzieła i zmienić wyobrażenie w rzeczywistość."

(s.199)
"Nasze życie to wytwór naszej głowy" (Marek Aureliusz)

(s. 214)

I have heard great things about Dale Carnegie and I was really looking forward to reading it when a co-worker lent it to me.

I did not find the book helpful. Instead it just stated ways to be a leader and then gave way too many examples of other people achieving it. I read the book for advice but did not seem to receive any. Yes, good communication and listening (among the points made in other chapters) are important, but if you don't tell me how to achieve it I cannot better myself.

I made notes...more

كتاب رائع يشرح فيه الكاتب الأسس العملية للنجاح و المتمثلة بشكل أساسي بعدة نقاط من اهمها ( العلاقات الإنسانية و الاتصال مع الآخرين - التوازن - الحماس - التفاؤل ) عن طريق طرح الأفكار و إثباتها بالأمثلة الواقعية لأشخاص حصلت معهم

This book was really helpful even though I'm really not in business (but if you are then this book will be more helpful to you than to me...). Some of the tips and tricks listed in this book were already discussed in my Eng 30 class last sem, although Carnegie still explained it flawlessly and also provided perfect examples of its applications.

What I liked:
1) the examples that Carnegie presented
2) the testimonials of successful business people
3) the fact that even the book was written a long tim...more

عنوان الكتاب يشرح نفسه .. الكتاب سيفيد كل من له علاقة في الإدارة أو لديه مؤسسة كبيره كانت أو صغيره أو صاحب مشاريع و كذلك أي شخص يقود مجموعة من الأشخاص نحو هدف ما .
Palash Bansal
one of the best self help books one would ever find. written long time back this is much more relevant today than it ever was. the tips and ideas presented in this book though sound very obvious, but when one actually analyzes his behavior in day to day affairs there is much to take away from it. The excerpts of the experiences of different people and how they handled the various situations does give one food for thought.
Overall a nice light read!!

This book was a great motivational read and I truly enjoyed the stories. As I read the book I realized that I should look into furthering my education and start attending some Dale Carnegie classes. The book clearly states that setting goals and being a leader is hard work and to obtain greatness requires stepping in the right direction and changing course frequently.
Peter Anderson
Not as good as How to Win Friends and Influence People
Todd Mckeever
Was a good book but read and felt as your typical self help book. Had good ideas and reminders.
Basma alsubaie
هذا الكتاب أمدني بطاقة إيجابية عظيمة
ألهمني بأفكار في القيادة تفيدني في عملي
ايضاً أصبحت أرى تصرفات بسيطه لكن الاستمرار عليها يزيد الوضع سوءاً ، وكذلك زاد من ثقتي بنفسي كقائد حينما علمت أن بعض الامور التي اسير عليها هي من اهم سمات القائد . أنصح بقراءته .
Will Vasconcelos
Great insights in personal development and improvement of social skills.
Chris Ross
I listened to the audio book and it was okay. The book is a smattering of "How to Win Friends and Influence People" and "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" with stories of modern day people from the time the book was written, 1993.
Ismail Andy
good book it's give you advise about leading and who to be a good manager who to lead a company to be #1 ....................... little advise from me read "Istmta' Bheatk for Dr.Mohammad Al-Arefe" is match better

Like all the Dale Carnegie books, a quick read that helps you find perspective. Almost like taking vitamins a world in a fast pace ever changing world.
Michael
An updated version of sorts of Carnegie's classic _How to Win Friends and Influence People_. Great stories and great for listening to during your commute.
