Nashville, TN (PressExposure) July 03, 2009 -- Joseph R. Lavelle has dedicated his career as a strategic business advisor to ensuring that his clients achieve maximum performance while insisting that the members of his consulting teams experience accelerated personal growth. This executive, who has started and/or run several national healthcare consulting practices, has found his calling in helping others become more successful in their careers. His new book, Act As If It Were Impossible to Fail, The Employee Handbook That Your Employer Hasnât Given You (ISBN 9781439240724), is an extension of the collection of strategies he has created for those interested in achieving maximum job performance.
Joeâs desire to positively affect as many people as he can led him to share the expertise he gained from thousands of hours coaching and mentoring business teams and clients. His aspiration to impact even more people has recently led him to brand his mantra âAct As If It Were Impossible to Failâ and to start blogging and write his first book.
Mr. Lavelle will be discussing his new book and business strategies when he appears as Yvonne Perryâs guest on Writers in the Sky (WITS) Podcast on June 19. Writers in the Sky Podcast is a talk show about writing, publishing, and book marketing. The format features interviews with authors on the topics of their books. WITS Podcast may be found on iTunes. Archived shows are listed on the right sidebar on WITS blog: http://yvonneperry.blogspot.com.
Lavelleâs goal for Act As If It Were Impossible to Fail is to get the book into the hands of professionals who want to get promoted faster and have more successful careers.
âI donât think of myself so much as a writer,â says Joe, âbut as someone with many things to share. Writing is a way for me to reach far more people than those who work for me.â
Why a book for career-oriented professionals who want to accelerate their career growth and find strategies, knowledge, and tools to get promotions and raises faster? Because it is more important than ever to know how to stand out from the crowd and move up the ladder. Just like buying stocks at a low price during a recession, this book can give you inside tips for climbing the corporate ladder when others are struggling to hold on.
âThe tools outlined in my book provide the strategies needed to advance your career. These have not been taught in college, and you wonât learn them from your employer,â says Joe. âI developed these practical strategies through observation and nurtured these ideas through many years of experience and research. They are applicable in every economic climate, especially in the current recession.â
Yvonne Perry, host of WITS podcast, says, âIn our current economy, many people hope to simply be able to keep the job they already have. Not many are thinking of ways they can advance their career. But, while others are being laid off, Joe Lavelle has come through with a book that gives people the tools needed to actually advance their careers. This is important information for our listeners and I believe Joe offers something people really need.â Ms. Perry is the owner of Writers in the Sky Creative Writing Services, which produces the podcast.
