Book Review: You Already Know How to Be Great

Here’s a scenario that you’ll find in the latest book to be summarized by Soundview Executive Book Summaries: A top-rated professional tennis coach who intensely studies performance and psychology has a life-changing moment on a damp tennis court in Wales. While it sounds like something scripted for a Hollywood production, this event is grounded in reality. In You Already Know How to Be Great: A Simple Way to Remove Interference and Unlock Your Greatest Potential, Alan Fine describes the mindset and processes that prevent people from reaching new levels of achievement.

Fine’s time as a tennis instructor gives his book a unique undercurrent that is missing from the hundreds of books written by executives and consultants. He uses a simple methodology to help executives break through the mental roadblocks on the path to success. For Fine, the key to an executive’s performance breakthrough is the G.R.O.W. process (Goal, Reality, Options, Way Forward). While readers may be skeptical about another business book that attempts to codify personal change in the form of a catchy acronym, Fine’s steps are rooted in hours upon hours of research and field work.

You Already Know How to Be Great will appeal to global audiences. Fine has worked with professionals (both within and beyond the sports realm) all over the world, and he understands the nuances of world-class performance. Executives should have little trouble understanding Fine’s principles and adapting them to performance goals both in and out of the office. When it comes to recent books on unlocking one’s potential, Fine delivers an ace.
