The Magic Bullet Book
This is a book you 'do', not a book you read!
The Magic Bullet is an action oriented book focused on implementation. Implementation happens through daily application. The book has a 21 day action plan that the reader must commit to for 21 consecutive days. The first part of the book will focus on ten important attitudes and an MDA (method of daily application) for the user. The back half of the book focuses on the most important skill and that is people skills. The thrust of the book is the synergistic relationship between attitudes and skills. In addition the author argues that there has been an over emphasis on drilling for relevant skills and little emphasis on developing a positive learning attitude. Chronology and priority are important issues here. Implementation is more easily achieved as friction is reduced. Most organizations for example invest 95% of their money and energy into skill development than the improvement of their most important asset, their people. The 10 attitudes presented in the book, implemented on a daily basis will have a positive effect on attitudinal growth. When you change an attitude you change everything. After the 10 attitudes are presented people skills, the most important skills are introduced. Different personalities process information in a different manner. Personalities are born and not made.
When you learn how other personalities process information you become more flexible and can adjust. The skills section shows the reader how to read and adjust to other personalities to Improve communication skills. In summation an improved attitude coupled with improved people skills is what the Magic Bullet is all about.
