Work Like You're Showing Off!: The Joy, Jazz, and Kick of Being Better Tomorrow Than You Were Today

Joe Calloway

Wiley,  June 2007

A guide to creating joyful success in work and in life

What the world needs is more showoffs.

Showing off is a good thing. Showing off is a mindset. Showing off is about living life and doing work in a way that creates joy, jazz, and a kick in our lives and in the lives of those around us. This is a business book for everyone from executives and managers to receptionists and sales clerks. Here's the key: success is an inside job. After 26 years of studying and working with top performers, Joe Calloway shares the key factors in creating success -- without pulling any punches. Work Like You're Showing Off! isn't for sissies; it's a tough, realistic approach to getting the most out of life by giving more to others.

This book proves that not only is "working like you're showing off" the smartest way to get ahead in a career, it's also the most joyful and rewarding way to live. Work Like You're Showing Off! explores the four commitments that lead to personal and professional success:

  • Commitment to action: Stop talking about it and do it
  • Commitment to improvement: Either get better or quit
  • Commitment to connection: Connect with coworkers and friends
  • Commitment to purpose: Look beyond the job to the purpose of work
