Share Article

From upper management in business to everyday life the new book Care - You Have the Power teaches how to infuse care into life to build powerful interpersonal and leadership skills.

Care: You Have the Power uses simple ways to significantly enhance relationships at all levels of life. There's nothing new to learn -- not really.

The vignettes in 'Care' come from many different kinds of people, from a Hall of Fame football quarterback to company CEOs to people in homeless shelters. The stories will renew faith and motivate action in life -- starting right now.

In addition to lessons learned from directing customer care in the corporate world with companies such as Levi Strauss International and Apple Computer, the author Ivan Temes has taught thousands of seminar participants how to build confidence and market themselves. The sessions have taken place at homeless shelters, career centers and universities and for military veterans who needed to find a job.

The book really started many years ago when Ivan Temes had a powerful experience while in the emergency room at Stanford Hospital. He had downturns in his life, but didn't let himself to become jaded. Along the way he collected examples of caring, and the impact that it has on us. In our world, it's so easy to connect with other people, at least on a superficial level. If we have so many electronic devices facilitating connection and communication, why are we more isolated than ever?

This is a book on how to connect -- in everyday life and in business. It's about bringing meaning to life. Bill Campbell, Chairman Intuit Corporation says that "These stories are wonderful. Trust leads to motivation and participation. In 'Care: You Have the Power' we should each be able to identify with and use the care factors that are the foundation of real trust."

We are born with a need to feel appreciated and cared about. Knowing that someone cares can transform lives and relationships. Seeing how simple actions can positively affect people can motivate us to show more care. Caring leads to intimacy and is a quality of good leadership.

Employees and management can both be moved to create change that can transform companies. "It was so great to read this book--I wish it was mandatory reading for all upper management folks," said Manda Choi, Customer Care Representative.

With a simple formula called the care formula, we can learn to show more care. Caring brings success in everything we do. It's possible to communicate that we care in everyday actions -- even when showing emotion is unexpected -- like when writing an email. This book inspires greatness through caring.
