Look Out Above!
ABOUT THE BOOK
You’re bright, talented, and likely credentialed from a college or university. As you may have noticed, however, academic success has a short shelf life in the real world. What matters now is accomplishment, which, in turn, depends on your ability to contribute, write, present, pitch ideas, lead, and advocate in the manner valued in the workplace.
Look Out Above! is your guide for developing these critical workplace skills. In a crowded market, we’ve not seen anything like it. The value here is threefold:
- Practical, proven, real-world content
- A focused, less-is-more approach
- Dual perspectives from a young professional and a seasoned executive.
Each chapter does the job of an entire book to provide you with the greatest benefit in the least amount of time. Look Out Above! will help you get ahead and stay ahead.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
LILI DUNN – President, Bell Partners, Woman of Year in Real Estate
Look Out Above! is a brilliantly written and highly entertaining guide to excelling in today’s work environment. It combines real life experiences and valuable insights with a unique sense of humor. LOA! is a fabulous resource for young and old alike.
STEPHEN MILLER – former senior executive, The Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC
Bob and Nick have drawn on decades of experience and wisdom to create an entertaining and practical field guide to career success. It’s a must read for those who want to be more effective at any stage of life.
ERIC RASMUSSEN – Regional Director, Johnson Development Associates, Young Professional
A straightforward and humorous insight into the fundamental (and often overlooked) soft skills that are critical for growth and success in today’s business environment – yet not widely taught in Business School. I wish I could have read Look Out Above! five years ago.
DICK MICHAUX – former CEO, AvalonBay Communities, Inc.
I’m impressed with the vast amount of practical and proven information in these pages. I know they can boost the career of a young executive because I saw them work for so many (including one of the authors). If I were starting my career I would have a dogeared copy of Look Out Above! at my side and my MBA on the wall.
FRED KAMENY – Lawyer and Editor
You will find more good sense in a single page of Look Out Above! than in most workplace guides in their entirety, not to mention most workplaces.
KRIS BENNETT – Entrepreneur and podcast host, young professional
Look Out Above! is packed with actionable advice and down-to-earth examples of how to distinguish oneself in the workplace. Those who wish to excel at work would be wise to read it twice.
