If you’ve ever heard of someone described as “a real people person” and agreed, you no doubt immediately thought “Boy, we could use more people like that!” And you’d be right. There are truths that are universally acknowledged: a people person will smoothly, successfully engage in effective, pleasant human interactions. They are more likely to be promoted, respected, admired, complimented and appreciated than those who simply do not know how to thrive among humans. Simply put, everyone could benefit from being a people person, but many just don’t know how or don’t know where to find the answers.
Supported by interviews, case studies and sound research, People People will teach why being a people person even matters, what makes a people person, and how and where to be a people person.

In an increasingly impersonal world, where texts, tweets and e-mails have replaced warm-blooded, face-to-face interactions, People People have become rarer and, significantly, more valuable than ever before. At work, those with the “human touch” foster stronger professional associations, get promoted faster and make more money than their colder counterparts; and in their personal lives, People People do better socially, enjoy more lasting relationships and live longer, healthier lives than the “unenlightened.”
What makes a People Person? Using case studies, research, interviews and observations from a lifetime of paying attention, work culture expert and humorist Scott Christopher identifies four basic qualities that redefine the notion of being a People Person. At its core, it’s less about being good with people than it is about being good to people.

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
