leverage (lev'r ij) The power to act or influence.

ditch (dich) Slang, to get rid of; discard.

Finally, you hold in your hands a powerful tool that will show you how to take full advantage of -- Leverage! -- your strengths and most positive qualities, while at the same time discarding or getting around -- Ditch! -- whatever gets in your way.

Scott Blanchard and Madeleine Homan, co-founders of Coaching.com, share their groundbreaking program, honed by fourteen years of high-level executive coaching and consulting. They offer new perspectives on how to spend your precious and limited resources, time, emotions, passions, and energy to generate the best results.

The three-part process begins with a twenty-five-question self-assessment, then moves on to the Three Perspectives -- major life queries that focus on how you are perceived, your own self-image, and self-imposed limitations. The final step, the Seven Leverage Points, offers fresh insight into the choices you make and how you conduct yourself in business and in life. You will find immediately applicable tools to appraise and manage your work environment and personal gifts. You will be guided to make tiny but crucial shifts in getting needs met and drawing boundaries.

Leverage Your Best, Ditch the Rest eliminates the stupid stuff that distracts you and gets in your way. It shows you how to capitalize on what you've got going for you and how to invest in yourself like a hot new stock.

From AudioFile:

Two sharp executives offer a well-organized primer on leadership development. Based on content that can be found at www.Coaching.com, the program tells you how to assess yourself, understand how others perceive you, identify your basic needs, and uncover self-imposed limitations. The tone of the writing and narration is perfect for the material. Without hype or silliness, it explains the program and leaves the rest up to the listener. More than behavioral coaches, the authors promote insight into human nature and show how to look for support, clarify inner standards, and develop persistence. They offer un-expected concepts and tools for change that become obvious once you consider them. T.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
