Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
In his bestselling book The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die, John Izzo tackled the secrets to lifelong happiness. Now he gives readers the key to a great career, a great workplace, better relationships, and a better world. Stepping Up argues that almost every problem, from personal difficulties and business challenges to social issues, can be solved if all of us look to ourselves to create change rather than looking to others. By seeing ourselves as agents of change we feel happier, less stressed, and more powerful.
Izzo offers seven compelling principles that enable anyone, anywhere, anytime to effectively bring about positive change. And the book is filled with stories that will inspire you: a middle-aged Italian shopkeeper who fought back against the Mafia, two teenagers who took a stand and ignited an antibullying movement, an executive who turned a dying division into a profit center, and many more. We all have the power to change the world—John Izzo shows us how.
“Insightful and inspired! Stepping Up reveals how all of us can create positive change in life and work.”
—Marshall Goldsmith, world-renowned executive coach and author of the New York Times bestsellers Mojo and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
“This powerful, practical, life-changing book gives you the key to unlocking your full potential for greater success, achievement, and personal power in every area of your life.”
—Brian Tracy, bestselling author of Eat that Frog! and Goals!
“The perfect book for the times in which we live…page after page of engaging stories, profound insights, and practical tips on how you can stand up and take responsibility for making something meaningful happen.”
—Jim Kouzes, Dean’s Executive Fellow of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University, and coauthor of the bestselling The Leadership Challenge and Credibility
