Overview

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.

Prolific author and business adviser John Izzo details how to improve your life and make a difference in the world. Drawing from his background in leadership, personal development and corporate culture, Izzo articulates solid theory, practical strategies and examples of how otherwise ordinary people have “stepped up” to fill a need, right a wrong, or make things better for themselves and others. Izzo’s compendium of practical ways to take action at times is very effective, even though he sometimes slips into New Age-speak and repeats his main points. getAbstract recommends this blueprint for change to anyone with a bent for self-improvement.

Dr. John Izzo takes you through the amazing process of stepping up and taking responsibility....can it be that simple? Yes. We have heard about people described in his book....now meet them and their success stories. Not a difficult read, just some great ideas to explore and then maybe you are ready to "Step Up".
