A business fable for anyone feeling overwhelmed, underpaid, and frustrated in their job....
From the author of The Myth of Multitasking comes Invaluable, a business fable that empowers the frustrated and overworked to understand the value of their time. At the fictitious company GreenGarb, 20-something Jason is discontented with his entry-level position, feeling his skills and knowledge are being underutilized. Mid-level manager Tracy is overwhelmed by her workload and her needy direct reports. And CEO Helen needs them to sort it out productively.
Jason's grandfather, Charlie, plants the seed of a new perspective in Jason mind: Before he can get a raise, he must prove he deserves the raise. He must establish the value of his time, rather than expecting to be paid what he thinks he is worth. Time management consultant Phil helps them determine how they spend their time, and what it costs, with easy-to-follow worksheets that map what their actions and time are worth. Invaluable:
The Myth of Multitasking taught listeners how to take control of their time. Invaluable explains how to increase the value of the time they spend at work.

The book give you a better understanding on what it means to be invaluable to your employer
This is accomplished through story teller which really make it that much easier to relate to
This book shows how basically the 80/20 principle can be implemented to increase your value. some good guidelines and an easy to follow story based lesson.
how human and real it is! despite our corp. this and corp. that mentality! which is very very cold! this man cuts through it with a "human touch"
none that i can come across! the only thing i would recommend is to check out the same author who runs a course online by Dave Crenshaw
i cant say that i have - but he is a soothing human voice as he narrates
this would be a brilliant educational movie drama or something in that line which show modern day workers, entrepreneur and everyone in between how markets and things around us are changing so fast but at the same time, the "human element" in all of them remain the same!
love the life altering books and stories such as this
Loved it. The story line made the concepts easy to understand. Grab a pen and paper. when listening, this book is filled with invaluable information
