“Insightful and inspired! John Izzo’s 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
Bestselling author John Izzo brings together his distinctive mix of inspiring story-telling and practical advice to tell how we can more effectively bring about positive change by taking responsibility in our work.
Stepping Up argues that almost any business challenge, can be solved if each of us were to look to ourselves to be the agent of change, rather than looking to others. The more each of us takes responsibility and chooses to step up and initiate change, the more we will find personal power and be able to influence change in the workplace. And with research to prove it, John Izzo shows that by seeing ourselves as the locus of change rather than the victims of change, we are happier and less stressed.
Using examples from business and society, the book will both inspire and challenge while showing how to create a business where people are more likely to step up and create change. The author tells many stories in the book, including one about a group of secretaries who initiated significant change in their companies by taking the initiative. He has stories from a myriad of companies including; Clorox, Starbucks, Tim Horton's Donuts, TELUS Canada, and many more.
