Publisher's Summary

Imagine waking up with enthusiasm every workday. Imagine being certain that you are highly valued by your boss and coworkers. Imagine feeling secure and in control because, even if jobs are being eliminated, you’re too valuable to let go. In other words, imagine being indispensable. Sound too good to be true? Not according to Mark Samuel, who has helped thousands of people around the world get on the path to personal achievement and fulfillment. He shows why the key to becoming indispensable is to embrace accountability rather than run from it, in everything you do at work and in your personal life.

You’ll see how Samuel’s Personal Accountability Model really worked for people such as:

  • Lynn, who transformed herself from the worst teacher at her school to one of the most respected.
  • Dan, an office assistant of ten years who finally figured out how to jumpstart his career.
  • Mary, a supervisor who had continually been skipped over for promotion, until she finally decided to stop “playing it small.”
  • Jerry, a plant manager who got stuck in a “victim loop” when his division began to underperform. Only when he stopped blaming others could he find the energy and ideas to help his plant overcome its challenges.

Becoming indispensable doesn’t require a fancy degree, a senior management title, or a huge income. It’s a mind-set available to anyone, as you’ll learn from these and other inspiring true stories. You’ll also discover Samuel’s proven strategies for letting go of victimhood, figuring out what’s really holding you back, and taking smart actions to achieve your highest goals.

    Story
    "Great book if you are feeling stuck in your job"
    Would you listen to Making Yourself Indispensable again? Why?

    I listened to it twice, then I bought the hard copy book. The book is well written and provides great info a strategies if you are feeling dispensable and obsolete, or at least stuck and going no where in your job. I bought the hard copy for two reasons; first so I could do the exercises and second so that I could read some of the important info in detail. I also made copies of the exercises for some of my coworkers. I don't want to discourage people from getting the audio book. It is great for listening while you commute, etc.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well organized and very useful strategies for improving my performance at work. Better than 99% of the management and leadership books I have listened to and read.


    What does Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a good job, better than many narrators I have heard. Voice inflection, etc.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is 7 hours long, so not possible. Plus, you have to stop between chapters to absorb the info. There are also some exercises at the end of the chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I highly recommend it.
