Commitment to Character: Achieving Success from the Inside Out
Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 13, 2009
If you were running for President today, would your co-workers vote for you? According to author Jean Watterson, the truth is that many employees are their own worst enemy when it comes to succeeding in the workplace. In her new book, "Commitment to Character: Achieving Success from the Inside Out", Watterson sheds much light on the subject of how closely workplace success and personal character are linked.
"People tend to want to blame 'everybody else' when their career goes off track," says Watterson, a military veteran, successful businesswoman, consultant and corporate development coach.
After almost 30 years in business she has observed that a person's intellect doesn't influence career success nearly as much as their inner character does. Her book re-establishes the connection between good character and success in the workplace by essentially holding up a mirror for managers, leaders and employees that helps them identify the character traits that could be holding them back from success.
"How we see ourselves," she says, "is not always the way others see us. What your character communicates to others about who you are can be much more important to success than having an Ivy League education."
Watterson's book provides practical tools and techniques for creating success-enhancing character traits. She wrote the book to give corporations, government agencies and business schools a vehicle to promote the value of good personal character in the workplace. "You don't have to look far in today's business world to see that we have all but forgotten this essential ingredient to success."
"Commitment to Character", due out in March 2009, is being published by LifeSuccess Publishing and is available for Pre-Order today at http://www.commitmenttocharacter.com and for purchase through Amazon.com in March.
