Stepping Up

How Taking Responsibility Changes Everything



From bestselling author John Izzo, Stepping Up will inspire you with stories of real people who transformed their lives, relationships, and organizations by taking personal responsibility, and will give you the tools to step up, too.

Stepping Up argues that almost every problem, from personal difficulties and business challenges to social issues, can be solved if all of us look to ourselves to create change rather than looking to others.. And with the 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, less stressed, and more powerful.

Izzo offers seven compelling principles that enable anyone to effectively bring about positive change. This book is filled with stories that illustrate the incredible power of stepping up: a middle-aged Italian shopkeeper who fought back against the Mafia, two teenagers who ignited an antibullying movement, an executive who turned a dying division into a profit center, and many more. This second edition includes a new chapter on the Stepping Up Continuum, a model that looks at six ways to know if you are stepping up or stepping back, as well as fresh stories and a self-assessment tool for helping leaders create a culture for stepping up in their organizations.
