Bury My Heart at Conference Room B harnesses the awe-inspiring insights of Slap's life-changing management workshops. The book is a powerful tool for creating emotional commitment in managers. That means unchecked, unvarnished devotion to the company. If you've ever witnessed a human being emotionally committed to a cause - working like they're being paid a million when they're not being paid a dime - you know that discretionary effort is worth more than their financial, intellectual, and physical commitment combined. Through unexpected case studies and a battle-tested self-assessment program, Slap shows how to help people live their deepest personal values at work, with huge payoffs for the companies that support their engagement.

Be human first, a manager second
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
We are all part of a "machine" of some sort along with the ability to detach and/or just strive to hit the all important numbers - whatever that means in your field. This is a call for humanity within leadership positions that begins with you - what do you value? Why do you value it? How do you live your personal values at work (where you spend the majority of your time)? And - most importantly - what is the impact of this journey on yourself, your colleagues, and, well, the numbers?

Fabulous. Refreshingly different. Impactful.
This is easily the most impactful business book I "read" last year (and I read quite a few). It helped me gain understanding and insight into my own motives, belief systems and values. These insights have already had a dramatic (and positive) impact on my personal and professional life. I'm having my entire team read it.
And I love the fact that Stan Slap narrates this himself. You can sense his passion and conviction in every word. Includes well-selected, real-world examples that help reinforce the principles. Also, the deeply personal and relevant stories shed light on the author's background and perspectives (which I appreciated). Time very well spend indeed. High five for Slap!
