The exercises and learning tools at the end reinforce each chapter's major take-away message. The online tools she provides on her website also add great value - self-assessments, surveys to obtain feedback from others, suggestions for further learning activities.

Co-author of Reframing Change: How to Deal with Workplace Dynamics, Influence Others, and Bring People Together to Initiate Positive Change
I have shared the author's website with many of my friends and colleagues because we all need to read this. My mindset on the job has been changed immediately because I realize that I contribute to the bottom line of my organization--whether or not I am made to feel so.
There is a statement about promotion not being a reward for personal performance. That really put things into perspective for me. (Aha moment!)
No Ceiling, No Walls has also helped me understand my superiors better. Some of them are totally from the school of "Compliance", which is a concept discussed in the book. Rather than share knowledge, they have the "gotcha" mentality and highlight only those things that are "wrong" with one's performance.
Ms. Colantuono, through your book, you are the mentor I never had.
