Stepping Upargues that almost every problem, from global warming to personal issues to business challenges, 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. 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. This book takes a look at what happens when we step up, what keeps us from stepping up and shows why when we do step up significant change occurs. Using examples from business and society, the book will both inspire and challenge while showing how to create a place where people are more likely to step up and create change. Stories range from that of a group of citizens who stepped up to improve the living conditions in one of the worst slums in the world in Sao Paulo to that of a group of secretaries who initiated significant change in their companies by taking the initiative.
John Izzo Ph.D. is a sought-after speaker and consultant, the bur or coauthor of four books including Awakening Corporate Saul, and host of the Biography Channel series The Five Things You Must Discover Before You Die.
