    Comfortable, Convincing, Effective

    I like a book that grabs my attention and my curiosity right away, a book that keeps me engaged. The writing style, like sitting in on a conversation, hooked me in the first few pages. You¿ll find this book to be a deceivingly quick read, though you¿ll probably catch yourself a number of times¿stopping, looking back over what you just read, and asking ¿what did he say?¿ Some of the lessons kind of sneak up on you. The premise of Connellan¿s approach is that three factors influence success: Expectations, Responsibility, and Feedback. He relates those factors to improving human performance¿in business, in school, in family relationships, in personal development. Some improvement is measurable; some is not, but you know the improvement is there. In 15 chapters, the reader takes a journey through Connellan¿s three keys. After a couple of introductory chapters on why people fall short and how to create consistently high performance, each of the keys is explained, with how-to, by a consultant/counselor. His workshop participants listen, then put the theories to work. A chapter on each success story illustrates what can be done in a teaching mode that¿s inspirational at the same time. I like the practicality of this book. You¿ll find plenty of good ideas, well-presented. The last few pages hold a surprise: a Leader¿s Tool Kit to put the book¿s lessons to work. While reemphasizing his three keys¿confidence and expectations, accountability, and appropriate feedback, Connellan offers additional resources and suggestions. This book will be valuable for educators, parents, coaches, and corporate executives at all level. It's small enough so it's not intimidating, but filled with a lot more value than you'd expect.
