Unless You're a Hermit Success Means Working with People

Success in a chaotic world does not come easily. This is no quick fix because life doesn’t work with quick fixes. It takes more than passion, and courage. It requires commitment to a learned pattern of actions... a personal model that you use every day. It doesn’t have to be fancy and it includes everything you do.

This book sets out elements that you can use as a blueprint to examine your model. It challenges you to search for the “why” in what you do and it helps you to lock in those essentials that will help guarantee success in your personal and professional life.
