Moving the NeedleGet Clear, Get Free, and Get Going in Your Career, Business, and Life!
Through his new book, Moving the Needle: Get Clear, Get Free, and Get Going in Your Career, Business, and Life, Joe will show you how to put action plans into place, become accountable, and ultimately, achieve your goals. If you’ve been hoping to gain much-needed traction at work and in your personal life, then Joe Sweeney will show you how to move forward.
A master networker, Joe has delivered hundreds of keynote addresses to large corporations such as General Electric, Wells Fargo, and Northwestern Mutual since the release of Networking Is a Contact Sport in 2010. He has heard a consistent refrain from CEOs, vice presidents, businessmen and businesswomen, military personnel, and college graduates following his presentations: “Can you help move the needle at our company and improve performance on a consistent basis?”
What Joe noticed was that these companies and their employees were having a hard time getting clear, getting free, and getting going in their professional as well as their personal lives. Sensing a vital need, Joe wrote Moving the Needle for anyone looking to work his or her way out of a rut or make key transitions in life.
Moving the needle can happen everyday in our lives. You have to be committed to continuous improvement and also develop systems that help create game changers. It isn’t always that large order in business or the big promotion. You can do it when you learn to get quiet, get centered, enjoy simple things in your life and take pleasure in experiencing special moments that life presents to us.
When he employed the tools and systems in this book, Joe's life became richer, fuller, and blessed with experiences, purpose, and meaning... and your life can too!
Much like changing behavior after reading a book or listening to a 1-hour keynote is challenging, losing 50 pounds after 1 hour in the gym is just as difficult. This book is focused on modifying behavior to reach, sustain, and surpass your objectives.
"Much like my book The Success Principles, Moving the Needle is a transformational guide that will help you and your business move the ball forward."
Moving the Needle provides both the "kick in the pants" and the game plan many of us need to break out of the rut and get moving to achieve our goals. CEOs, vice presidents, professionals, military personnel, and even college students frequently express frustration at the entrenched status quo, in which initiating progress feels like moving mountains.
This book lights a path toward continual improvement, helping readers first find a direction, then make the key transitions that jumpstart forward progress. This highly practical guide outlines a change process that can be applied to professional or personal goals, giving readers a concrete plan for making big things happen. Rather than blindly shooting for the moon, readers will formulate a solid, systematic, actionable plan that can only result in progress.
In today's tenuous business climate, employers and employees alike can be glued to the ground, unsure of the path they should take, or whether they have the freedom to move forward. Moving the Needle helps readers clarify their current position, identify their optimum position, and formulate a workable strategy for getting from here to there.
You'll learn how to:
- find what "moving forward" means for your career and life...
- shake off the doldrums of routine and establish a culture of innovation...
- improve performance on a consistent basis, at every level...
- Break the inertia and get moving in the right direction
Stagnation is diametrically opposed to progress. Moving forward requires a vision, a plan, and the impetus to get things done. Those who sense that big things can happen need to get clear, get free, and start Moving the Needle.
"Through my decades of experience in the military and in business, I have found that effectively serving others in leadership roles is not accomplished by doing big things; it is accomplished by developing the necessary habits that enable one to consistently do the right things on a daily basis. Moving the Needle provides the tools to steer you on the course to effectiveness and influence."
