Synopsis: Author Brian J. Bieler asks the question: "What does it take to create success? In his new book POWERFUL STEPS, Bieler demonstrates that what stands between most people and career accomplishment is the surprising fact that they overlook or take for granted a few relatively common skills. "People rarely move ahead and get promoted because of job skills alone." Far more important, says Bieler, are fundamental people skills that almost anyone can develop. "You create success by becoming a good communicator, developing good relationships, thinking strategically and being focused." Using real life experiences, Bieler leads the reader to the inescapable conclusion: The number one strategy in developing careers is improving people skills. The successful are able to influence others and sell ideas. A high IQ and education may get you the job but are not a guarantee of success. It's all about how you think and act. Creativity and innovation drive careers and business. You must take risks because that's where the rewards are. "Ultimately," says Bieler, "the most powerful secret is how to think like an entrepreneur and create opportunities." Powerful Steps is written in a clear easy-to-read style with real-life stories and lessons on the critical skills. Readers will discover: How to think, not what to think How to become a better communicator Why focus and commitment are critical Why most people and managers are confused on how to motivate others Secret strategies: how to negotiate like a pro Why relationships are even more important in a competitive workplace What great leaders do differently and what they focus on How to think and plan strategically using skills of winners and warriors What happens when you don't hold back and take action

"Working in different markets gives you a unique perspective. You learn that peoplesí wants and needs are the same everywhere. However, different environments will change peopleís behavior and outlook. I saw the best performance when people were in an innovative and creative work environment. Having fun is smart business.
Top performers donít like the concept of being managed and think of themselves as professional volunteers. Hiring and learning how to manage talented performers is a challenge but leads to extraordinary results and rewards. The secret is mastering people and interpersonal skills to help others become successful. Old school hierarchal management wonít work with the new generation of workers. It takes an entrepreneurial approach to keep the best people and stay ahead of competition."
Brian learned through experience and the success of others. Winners follow a similar pattern of thinking, "When you see how the successful do it, you realize you can do it. The single best thing you can do to ramp up your career is master the basic skills of communication. The higher you move up the ladder, the more important these skills become."
Brian is married with three children and resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
