Buy-In: Saving Your Good Idea from Getting Shot Down by John P. Kotter
Read this for my work book club. The first half of the book was one of those business story / fable. It was a little awkward but you know going in that this is NOT a fiction book, and the story was just for illustration purpose. I mean, you have character's name such as Heidi Agenda ("Hidden Agenda") and Pompus Meani.
The 2nd half of the book listed the different strategies to counter the attacks if someone tries to shot down your ideas. It listed 24 different type of attacks, and their responses. This is rather useful, but I'd imagine this works better as a reference book, as there is no way I'd remember everything listed.
This was a quick read. I'd recommend it to those who needs help dealing with nay-sayers in a diplomatic way.
3.5 / 5 .
Good reference book.
Note - The book was borrowed from the library.
