Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Invaluable empowers the frustrated and overworked to understand what their time is worth and how they can, quite literally, spend it more profitably.
An engaging business fable, Invaluable tells the story of Jason, who is discontent in his entry-level position, feeling his skills and knowledge are underutilized; his manager, Tracy, who is overwhelmed by her own workload and seemingly needy direct reports; and their CEO, Helen, who needs them to sort it out productively. From an unexpected source, Jason learns a hard but invaluable lesson: before he can get a raise, he must prove his real dollar value, rather than expect to be paid what he thinks he is worth. Though at very different stages in their careers, Jason, Tracy, and Helen each learn how to determine the value of their time and actions, the best ways to spend their own time, and how to empower their colleagues to do the same.
With easy-to-use assessments and worksheets and ready-to-implement advice, Invaluable will help you:
In The Myth of Multitasking, Dave Crenshaw showed you how to gain more time, making you more present in both work and life. Invaluable will now show you how to maximize the very real dollar value of each working hour.
- Determine exactly how "invaluable" you are to your boss and customers
- Discover your "Most Valuable Activities" and how to focus on them

- Develop strategies to increase job security and income
"Invaluable is the next logical step in career development. This story will show you step-by-step how to increase your value in the market and increase workplace harmony."
—Daniel H. Pink, author, A Whole New Mind and Drive
"Invaluable bridges the gap between employee-manager relationships and productivity. Companies that implement this message not only stand to improve their bottom line but also make their work environments happier for everyone."
—Keith Ferrazzi, author, Who's Got Your Back and Never Eat Alone
"At Zappos.com, our core values include pursuing growth and learning, doing more with less, and building a positive team and family spirit. Dave's message can resonate with anyone looking to live those values and make themselves invaluable."
—Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos.com
"Invaluable is operations excellence for small companies. Crenshaw's easy-to-follow style explains practical methods for analyzing what one is doing and figuring out how to be more productive-more 'invaluable.' Managers can easily improve their operations by asking all members of the team to read Invaluable and go through the steps outlined."
—Brad Smart, author, Topgrading: How Companies Win by Hiring, Coaching, and Keeping the Best People
