Many different versions of us show up in the places we work, and for a variety of reasons. Sometimes when we′re working, our real selves take a back seat.
The mindset and underlying working mentality of people in an organization goes a long way to defining its culture. The problem is, many of our dominant norms and practices get in the way of us really showing up and bringing the best of ourselves to work.
Showing Up is a powerful update to the way we think, react and operate in the work we do. The opportunity to show up is there for all of us, in any job, in any organization and in any part of the world in which we find ourselves. ′Work′ can be amazing, adrenaline–filled, muscle–stretching and full of possibility, regardless of the sector we′re in. We just need our heads to be in the right place.
Showing Up will show you how to:
- Shift your working mindset from ′School with Pay′, to one where you get stuck in and start making a difference
- Identify your strengths and make the most of all your talents
- Make a real contribution at work and feel better about yourself as a result
- Instil enthusiasm in others and create a team that really makes things happen
Get ready for a book that will spark an update in your thinking, change the way you view your professional life and transform your performance in the process.
"Showing Up will disrupt the way you think while you′re working and help you raise your game in the process. Update now!"
Steve Backley OBE, 3–time World Record Holder and 3–time Olympic Medallist
