The Book – Bottom of the Food Chain: A Fresh Perspective on How Your Career Impact Goes Beyond Your Job Title.
Review: “Bottom of the Food Chain is a great perspective and help for those who may not feel they're in a position of power or more in the role of a “worker bee.” The reminder that your work matters, ideas for growth and how to see your own potential, as well as space for your own reflection is a great antidote for the “quiet quitting” currently making the rounds. Learning how you bring value to your work may well set you up for your dream job, or you may just find yourself realizing that, regardless of the time it's taking to climb –or not climb– up the ladder, you can always find opportunities for growth and learn to “lead up.” Who should read this? Anyone feeling stale or stuck. LaPora Lindsey brings a wise voice and shares her own experiences of learning your value as a Power Producer, no matter your job title or role.”
