Simply Extraordinary!!

Extraordinary Influence: How Great Leaders Bring Out the Best in Others, by Tim Irwin is a must read!  This book has had a profound impact on the way I will relate to people in the future.  He also affirmed much of what I do, but Irwin took this a step further.  This book focuses on how each person can influence others.  Not to get what they want, but to help others grow in who they have been called to be. 

We have the opportunity to speak Words of Life or Words of Death into others.  Most people are longing for a message, for affirmation, and too often we give idle compliments, or mask Constructive Criticism as Words of Death.  Irwin powerful shows the different between words of life and words of death.  he also helped the reader better understand the difference between compliments and words of affirmation.  There is such a huge difference between the two, which most people sadly miss.  We give idle compliments and believe they should change others.  But they do not, because compliments can't get beneath the skin, while words of affirmation reach into our hearts and spirits and offer us hope and a future we may not have realized was there.

Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone who works with others.  This is a transformational book.
I received this book at no expense in exchange for an honest review.
