Overview

Separates fact from fiction for what makes an employee indispensable

When trying to move ahead or even just keep a job, there are actions that would be of great advantage to any employee and there are strategies that are just plain stupid. Interestingly enough, the stupid strategies are used twice as frequently in corporate America. Indispensable By Monday goes beyond conventional wisdom to reveal and impart the skills and behaviors that any employee at any level of any organization can implement to bring substantial dollars to the company.

Author Larry Myler and organizational performance consulting firm VitalSmarts asked 1,800 corporate leaders to identify the bottom-line behaviors that would make employees essential to their organizations. Now, Myler distills what he learned for every employee and employer. Indispensable By Monday outlines the profit-producing behaviors that distinguish workers who add value from those who don't, such as reducing company costs, increasing income, improving key processes, bringing back lost customers and more.

    This book is a must read for the employed, the unemployed, the student, and employer alike. This is the book that I needed 35 years ago when I was advised, "Finance is the language of business."

    Easy and entertaining in reading, yet filled with practical advice (with real examples) that leads to successful people providing excellent bottom-line results. Even after years of experience the author's 'Profit Proposal Generator' was an 'eye opener' and helped me to quantify some of my accomplishments, revising my current resume with improved responses.
    Though timely and practical in a recession, it is just as valuable in any economy. The value of the book as suggested by the title, is indispensable for anyone looking for success. This book will remain in my library for frequent reference.
