A Journey into Valuing People and Understanding Accountability

“No Matter What – The 10 Commitments of Accountability” the title of Sam Silverstein’s new book encapsulates an understanding of accountability I had not considered before. In the book Sam introduces ten core commitments of accountability providing clarity and increased focus, helping the reader get unstuck how to move on.

The book opened my eyes to the importance of keeping my commitments to people and following the 10 Core Commitments as an example to effectiveness in leadership and to accomplish mutual goals in an organizational structure.

Each of the ten chapters concentrates on one of the core commitments to accountability by highlighting key elements, topic highlights, and in-depth discussion.

Silverstein’s writing is highly informative, deeply inspiring, brilliantly formatted, and superbly motivating.

Pursuing the Natural Flow of Movement – Guidelines for Getting Unstuck

In the first chapters of her book “Stop Depriving the World of You – A Guide for Getting Unstuck” Darlene M. Corbett introduces you, the reader, to the relationship of the earth’s movements to man’s personal world, the need for movement and its influence on your life journey.

Chapters ten through fourteen challenges the reader to move forward by guiding them through ten important steps to getting “unstuck,” celebrate your uniqueness, and moving into the “excitement” of the unknown.

A professional speaker, author and success coach, Darlene Corbett, has experienced a multifaceted thirty year career helping people succeed.

Corbett’s writing is stimulating, filled with thought provoking challenges which probe deeply, resulting in self-discovery, and behavioral changes. Chapter after chapter, page after page, and example after example Darlene guides the reader to awaken new talent, develop new skills, and in the ability to excel.

“Stop Depriving the World of You – A Guide for Getting Unstuck” has opened my eyes to exciting new ways through which I can incorporate my skills, passions, and experiences from the past to enter into a new season of life with new aspirations, and new visions, for discovering purpose and fulfillment in the months and years ahead.

I would have liked to have Corbett expand and develop more deeply some of the unique tools, prompts, and exercises introduced in this book. I am looking forward to the publication of her new book, now in process.
