TITLE: “Stepping Up: How How Taking Responsibility Changes Everything”
SPECIAL GUEST: John Izzo, PhD
“In Stepping Up”, Dr. John Izzo discusses with Allen and Dr. Melody that almost every problem, from global warming to personal issues to business challenges can be solved if we take action instead of relying on others for solutions or blaming others and feeling like a victim. Taking responsibility and action empowers you and when you step up and initiate change, others follow.
And you don’t have be in a position of power to make a difference. Leadership is posture and attitude, not a title. Stepping Up is rich with real life down to earth examples of how ordinary people accomplished extraordinary things. You’ll read about two teenagers who took a stand to stop bullying, a middle-aged Italian shopkeeper who fought back against the Mafia, an executive who turned a dying division into a profit center, a group that helped stop the hunting of whales, three women who bought beads from a woman in Uganda which lead to helping thousands start businesses, two young teachers who helped revitalize inner city schools, and many more.
John Izzo’s book will ignite the spark. All it takes is little willingness and courage on your part to take the first step and keep the fire lit.
Remember, Stepping Up is not just a book—it’s a movement!
Take action. Reclaim your power. Leave your victim mentality behind. Help build a better community and better workplace. Stop bullying. Encourage tolerance and kindness. Go green. Improve morale. Save your relationship.
If not you, who? If not now, when?
