Why They Don't See it Your Way…

What do you value most?

Money • Power • Knowledge • Beauty • Service • Spirit

You'll see yourself and everyone you know in this book.

If you want to find your passion, be more successful, and improve your relationships, this book will help you.  In it you will discover your personal values − what you must have in your life to be fulfilled. And it will help you understand people whose values are very different from yours.

Why Can't You See it My Way? explores six attitudes −  or worldviews −  we all have in varying degrees.

Reading it will give you insights into why people feel the way they do about money, power, knowledge, beauty, service, and spirituality.  Most importantly, you'll discover ways to resolve the conflicts that arise from value’s differences − both internal and external.

It's easy to read and filled with real-life examples of how our personal values interact and sometimes conflict with others.

When you discover ways to see it their way, they'll be more likely to come around and see it your way. And that is relationship compatibility.

This Book Is For:

  • Expert Author, Ezine ArticlesBusiness owners and CEOs who want to develop executive leadership skills that few people possess

  • Managers responsible for motivating their employees and team members wanting to develop more effective workplace communication and improve their team conflict management skills

  • People who want to achieve better relationship compatibility with the important people in their lives

And if you're in the process of choosing careers, deciding whether to change careers, or want to add to your career builders toolbox, Why Can't You See it My Way? may inspire you to say, "Oh, that's what I should be doing."  Many wise people have advised you to follow your bliss.  But how can you when we're not sure how to find your passion?  This book alone − and especially combined with your own personal values profile − will give you clarity about how to know what you want and align your life around what you value the most.

Kudos from Readers


"A fascinating and powerful book for coaches and their clients. An easy read. Take it to heart and it can change your life."

Sandy Vilas, CEO



"In the complex, global business environment of today, building great teams with diverse viewpoints is essential to success. Annette's book gets to the heart of understanding people and the impact of their values on performance. Mastering these elements can make the difference between success and failure, accomplishment and disappointment, for individuals and teams alike."

Dr. Jeffrey Graves, CEO
C&D Technologies

"This is a MUST-read book for managers.  One of those life-changing books.  Annette has accomplished the nearly impossible by taking what could be a confusing subject and making it simple and important to understand.

Glenn Shepard, Author of How to Manage Problem Employees and the #1 best-seller, How To Be the Employee Your Company Can't Be Without


"Why Can't You See It My Way? is a must read for anyone who lives outside of a bubble!  Annette has distilled a somewhat obscure and hard to understand science into an easy to comprehend digest that is immediately usable by business executives, sales professionals, parents, spouses and just about anyone who must work with or wants to get along with others on a one-to-one basis. This small book is packed with examples that bring the concepts to life and beautifully illustrate why even people who genuinely want to get along have such a difficult time. Understanding values, what one finds to be important, is an extremely valuable skill for business owners, executives and managers when it comes to hiring and retaining key talent.  It is also an extremely valuable skill that every sales professional should master if they truly want to be in the top 10% of their industry. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get along better with just one other person."

C. B. "Cork" Motsett, PMC, CPBA, CPVA, President & CEO

Author of Different Children Different Needs



"Why Can't You See It My Way? is a wonderful guide to a better understanding of why we feel the way we do, and why others feel the way they do as well! Annette brings this somewhat complex information down to an understandable format, and in so doing, equips us to make a journey into ourselves and others, and the values that make us tick. There are many spiritual moments, as well as moments of sheer common sense. Read, enjoy, and apply!"

Rev. Larry Snelson

"Your insight into the role that values play in our interpersonal relationships is fascinating. Several times as I read through your manuscript, I found myself thinking, 'Oh yeah, that's why it is so hard to get along with those people!'"
