TheMoreWhat it Takes was originally written for young office workers who wanted to acquire psychological techniques of success in the workplace. However, along the way, the book picked up a large following of executives – my closet readers. The simplification of the major techniques requisite to success makes it a very seductive tool for employees at all levels and of all ages. By using common language rather than academic posturing, the book enables the reader to more fully understand the concepts discussed. Equally important, the case studies illustrate how ordinary people apply the techniques.It became a text in many training courses and excerpts are used in some post graduate university courses. What it Takes brings together the author’s experience in Australian industry with her understanding of the interpersonal skills required for success. Through case studies and practical exercises she explains the techniques of persuasion, influence and motivation relevant to the work environment. These techniques are directed towards increasing personal effectiveness, work satisfaction and potential for career advancement. In its print form it was devoured by young office workers, parents, HR practitioners, trainers and executives. Now that it is in digital format there is an opportunity to reach many other people who want to increase their chances or promotion, work more effectively with their bosses and co-workers and learn to genuinely enjoy their work life.
