Have you noticed that as you maneuver your life, there is quite a bit of knowledge that is not easily accessible? Even if you are “book-smart," “street-smart," or an Internet junkie, many of us are still struggling and looking for answers. What we all wish to be is “access-smart."
The dictionary defines access as a way to gain entry to or obtain. We need access to tools and information to help us lead ourselves, lead others, and excel in life. Another meaning of access is one created by author Dr. Elizabeth A. Carter. As one who loves acronyms, Dr. Carter presents Gaining A.C.C.E.S.S. to Lead Yourself: 16 Activities Critical to Continuous Evolution & Success for Self. With quotes from motivators including Jack Welch, Michelangelo, Mark Twain, Tony Robbins, and Nelson Mandela, Carter uses a conversational and candid tone while she shares stories of the bumps, bruises, and braveries that have impacted her life. This first book in the LEAP Series, which is focused on presenting, preparing and pushing yourself, provides A.C.C.E.S.S. and practical suggestions such as
•Change your mindset today: enhance your resume tomorrow.
•Don’t let demons cloud your thinking.
•Get out of your zip code.
•Put your best voice forward.
At the end of each section, Gaining A.C.C.E.S.S. to Lead Yourself: 16 Activities Critical to Continuous Evolution & Success for Self provides reflection and action items in order to provide the missing key to help you get your next job, promotion, or opportunity and reach that lifelong dream or goal (purchase the workbook to record your responses). .
