Overview

It isn’t uncommon for a sense of entitlement to crop up in “great” companies. People People arms individuals at work and at home with the tools they need to change “what have you done for me lately?” to “what more can I do to contribute?”

“Whether you are a senior leader or just starting out in your career, you’ll learn how to become the kind of person with whom others want to do business. And just like Scott himself, this hilarious book is full of practical tips and strategies that will help you work better with others—guaranteed.” —Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton, New York Times bestselling authors of All in and The Carrot Principle

“I loved this book! Scott has clearly framed the case for why ‘People People’ make all the difference in delivering results at work. The formula to becoming a ‘whole’ person is simple, inspiring and anyone can do it. The new math is clearly T1 + T2 = T3!” —Mark Servodidio, Chief Administrative Officer, Avis Budget Group

“People People sheds new light on the power of individual accountability and shows what it takes to assemble winning teams—an authentic respect for others. This is a must-read for all employees and, in fact, for anyone who has trouble ‘connecting’ with people.” —Dave Dodson, Communications

Read an Excerpt

Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Albert Einstein said that if you can’t explain something to a six-yearold, then you don’t understand it yourself. Occam’s razor states that the simplest answer is usually the right one. Still, a simpleton like me worries that it’s oversimplifying to say, and it pains me to write this, that this book is about being nice.

You may have just cringed a little. I know I did.

Other very successful authors and researchers have published seminal works on “nice,” and it is not my intention either to add to or subtract (but definitely steal) from the body of work they’ve contributed to the topic. For one thing, I am neither a successful author nor a very good researcher.

I wanted to write a true self-help book—one that would help me.

Because something you must understand first and foremost is that I am not a People Person. Sure, I possess certain characteristics that are traditional to People People like affability and a firm handshake, and I’m a bit fun loving (as evidenced by the cover photo), but as you’ll discover in the following pages, there’s a lot more to it than just being a bit extroverted.
