From the extraordinary Vice President of Marketing & Sales for ACME Industries, Ed Harris, comes this energy-charged book offering principles and wisdom to guide and assist you in becoming your own hero.
Ed Harris knows how to be a hero. During his fifty-year career, he has been devoted to helping his company be efficient, effective and profitable. His strategy is to develop people through company sponsored training and education programs while encouraging employees to take responsibility for their own continuous training. Ed advises that personal learning does not end when you graduate. Successful people—heroes— continually update their professional learning.
Ed emphasizes that an organization, at best, can create and sustain an environment that encourages and rewards employees for continuous improvement. But he cautions that improvement is the responsibility of the individual employee.
The focal point of the Mentor In The Mirror is the iconic speech Ed shares at his retirement party. Packed with succinct wisdom, insightful anecdotes, and on-target quotes and delivered with passion, the speechis an easily understood message and one every organization and every worker needs to hear.
The bonus of Mentor In The Mirror is contained in the 52 Success Reflections—the collective success writings of Ed Harris over the last years of his career. These success reflections contain Ed’s motivating principles, fascinating insights, and energizing stories from life, reminding you that in the events of everyday life lie the secrets to professional and personal success.
This book is ideal for the individual looking to improve personally, but could be easily adapted for employee training at any corporate or organization level, as well as course curriculum for college business communications.
I hope the Mentor In The Mirror will challenge you to continue or return to your journey toward professional and personal success. I believe that when you have finished reading this book you will fully understand The Law of Mentor In The Mirror: “What’s happening on the outside is a reflection of what’s within.”
As you practice the things you learn, you will discover the key to personal success and being your own hero is not only within, it is within your reach.
