Description
You deserve to be valued, respected, and admired for what matters to you. Here are twenty-one ways to make it happen. "Imagine how it would feel to be fully valued for what you do best. What if your boss, your customers, and your family really appreciated what you have to offer? How proud would you be if your organization won the top spot among Fortune Magazine's 'Most Admired Companies?' What if Jim Collins rated you a 'Level 5 leader?' In this book, you'll find 21 simple and powerful strategies that will help you become more valued in a crowded and competitive world--not in a superficial way or just for its own sake--but for what matters most to you and to the most valuable people (MVPs) in your life and work."- "From the Foreword by Frances Hesselbein and Marshall Goldsmith"
