One of the world's leading productivity experts reveals her six simple keys on how to achieve peak performance in the workplace and thus avoid unemployment.

“In this competitive economy, just being able to do your job is no longer enough. Competence is expected; you’ve got to be SuperCompetent to get an edge,” says Laura Stack, who after almost 20 years of studying the art and science of personal productivity, reveals the six behaviors high-achieving professionals demonstrate over their lower-performing peers in her new book, SuperCompetent: The Six Keys to Perform at Your Productive Best (Wiley, 2010; Hardcover, $24.95; ISBN: 978-0-470-59915-0).

“To be successful in the business world and reach your full potential in life, it's not enough to be simply competent. Our modern, super-competitive world is full of opportunities for the go-getter, but to take advantage of them, it's essential to become "SuperCompetent." The SuperCompetent person is one that companies fight to get, fight to keep, nurture as team players, and see as future leaders in their business growth,” said Stack, president of The Productivity Pro, a time management training firm specializing in productivity improvement in high-stress organizations.”

SuperCompetence isn't something you're born with-it's something that you can learn, no matter where your strengths lie or what industry you work in.
