Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
You deserve to be valued, respected, and admired for what matters to you. Here are twenty-one ways to make it happen.
“Imagine how it would feel to be fully valued for what you do best. What if your boss, your customers, and your family really appreciated what you have to offer? How proud would you be if your organization won the top spot among Fortune Magazine’s ‘Most Admired Companies?’ What if Jim Collins rated you a ‘Level 5 leader?’
In this book, you’ll find 21 simple and powerful strategies that will help you become more valued in a crowded and competitive world—not in a superficial way or just for its own sake—but for what matters most to you and to the most valuable people (MVPs) in your life and work.” —From the Foreword by Frances Hesselbein and Marshall Goldsmith
“Most people want to make a meaningful impact, but get stuck along the way. In this book, Mark and Bonita reveal powerful strategies from their latest research that will help you make it happen. Read it and then go try it.”
—Sir Richard Branson
“Admired is a must-read book that shows you how to make a difference to the people who matter most, and have fun doing it!”
—Peter Guber, New York Times bestselling author, CEO of Mandalay Entertainment, and former CEO of Sony Entertainment
“When you get really clear about what’s valuable to you and serve it up generously to people who need it—as this book reminds us—you’ll be admired as a leader.”
—Warren Bennis, bestselling author and Distinguished Professor at USC, and international authority on leadership
“Mark and Bonita offer you a lifetime of business experience helping people double their value to the world. This book addresses life’s most critical question: What meaningful thing do you want to be known for giving and doing?”
—Tony Robbins, bestselling author and peak performance coach
“The journey from success to significance is an essential step for every leader. Mark and Bonita’s insights inspire leaders to focus on what’s valuable and matters most.”
—John C. Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
