9780062246981: Kiss Your BUT Good-Bye: How to Get Beyond the One Word That Stands Between You and Success

A simple, engaging, and eminently practical guide to overcoming your weaknesses—your "Buts"—to achieve the career and personal relationships you want

Imagine a workplace where all the employees are aware of the things they do—or fail to do—that prevent them from being more productive and valuable. Imagine a company where everyone speaks openly and honestly about his or her weaknesses and is committed to strengthening and overcoming them. Imagine an environment where colleagues help one another become more efficient and less disruptive by speaking the truth about what detracts from the team's efforts and objectives. Imagine a place where the firm's most talented employees know exactly what they need to do to attain a leadership position.

This is no fantasy workplace: it can be your business if you listen to Joe Azelby and Bob Azelby, brothers and successful executives in their own right.

Kiss Your BUT Good-Bye will help all professionals find their individual BUT—whether it's a lack of skills, a distracting behavior, or a personality quirk that interferes with achieving success. Using road-tested techniques, Kiss Your BUT Good-Bye helps you examine your BUT, understand it, manage it, cover it, and most important, shrink it. It also enables managers to help their employees discover personal weaknesses and to learn how to deliver the direct, honest feedback every worker needs and deserves.

Finding your BUT can be tough medicine, but the Azelbys deliver it with a tasty spoonful of sugar. Get ready for success . . . get ready to Kiss Your BUT Good-Bye.

Review:

“Every successful leader knows that shortcomings in performance, if left unaddressed, limit professional growth. With humor and practical wisdom, this book shows you how to identify and strengthen your weak spots. Read it if you want to say hello to new career opportunities.” (Marshall Goldsmith, the world's leading executive coach & bestselling author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There)

“The Azelbys provide practical and powerful insights into how you can acknowledge and fix those things that may be limiting your career opportunities. No ifs, ands, or BUTs.” (Clayton Rose, Professor of Management Practice, Harvard Business School)
