Using the tools in the book, we learned about 'forgiveness' and 'recovery' from a pragmatic and very business like perspective. That has helped all our impacted leaders engage in more personally rewarding and safer ways. Breakdowns are quickly surfaced and forward motion accelerated with this kind of thinking.
It has been one of the most personally rewarding books for me. As with all Mark's work it focuses on execution, I didn't just set it aside as a 'nice' read. I found that page-by-page my thinking and then my behaviour started to change. I've also been priveledge to witness significant self-awareness and growth in others as they moved from a victim mentality to one of being an accountable formal and informal leader.
In a baffling, overwhelming world of constant change, this book provides clear tools and processes for how you can intentionally live the life you want.
Having taken Mark Samuel's workshop related to Making Yourself Indispensable, I can relate to the content of the book easier as I continue to read the book and work the exercises. I highly recommend for anyone who can to also take his workshops as adjunct to reading and working the book. Mark is a passionate human being who has cultivated a great wisdom about what it takes for us to live fulfilling lives.
