BE THE ONE is about a journey - our journey to find success in our careers.
Your journey most likely began the day you chose to work for a living or, if you're like me, the day your father told you to "get a job." Quickly our journey becomes filled with success and failure. At some point, we all experience being hired or not being hired; receiving a promotion or being turned down for a promotion; and creating, building, and losing relationships. Some of us will become leaders and some may never have the opportunity to lead.
I'm going to assume that this morning you woke up with all the best intentions to find success - to be better today than yesterday. BE THE ONE will help you along your daily journey. BE THE ONE is filled with insights and stories of success and failure that will provide you with the necessary tools to grow and enhance your career.
We'll begin the process by looking at you. After spending time in self-discovery and introspection, we'll move on to your interpersonal skills and your ability to build lifelong relationships. Last, I'll share with you leadership traits and skills to best prepare you for a leadership role. If you're already in a position of leadership, these same traits and skills will increase your effectiveness-everything from creating a vision, to hiring winners, to managing results.

Pound for pound, "Be The One" packs a powerful punch. In other words, Peter communicates to his readers a tremendous amount of leadership wisdom in this concise, insightful and witty book. His short, snappy narrative style, infused with real life, entertaining storytelling is a real strength of "Be The One." I am of the opinion that most leadership authorities have overcomplicated the teaching of leadership principles. On the other hand, Peter has mastered the art of communication by way of a simplified, easy to read, entertaining message. To be sure, if you want to know everything there is to know about goal setting or time management, this isn't the book for you. Alternatively, if you're interested in learning about the key behaviors and values necessary to succeed in today's challenging business environment, "Be The One" is the book for you. The greatest complement I can give to any writer is to recommend their book to my college-age children. "Be The One" will be in each of their stockings this Christmas.
