Prolific author and business adviser John Izzo details how to improve your life and make a difference in the world. Drawing from his background in leadership, personal development and corporate culture, Izzo articulates solid theory, practical strategies and examples of how otherwise ordinary people have “stepped up” to fill a need, right a wrong, or make things better for themselves and others. Izzo’s compendium of practical ways to take action at times is very effective, even though he sometimes slips into New Age-speak and repeats his main points. getAbstract recommends this blueprint for change to anyone with a bent for self-improvement.
In this summary, you will learn
- What it means to “step up,”
- How to use your personal “Five Rows of Responsibility” to improve society, and
- How to apply eight strategies to know when and how to step up for the greatest good of all concerned.

Comment on this summary
2 years agoThe summary is about accountability...seemingly a less appreciated trait today, as many are too quick to seek blame in others whilst self-reflection might just be the answer.
Izzy states, "People with a “flexible mind-set” succeed more often than those with a “fixed mind-set." In tech based economy, exponential growth is the new paradigm. Thus, the 'art of agility' becomes a key success factor!
