From the leadership expert, executive coach, and business speaker

One of the questions always asked of an author is how their book will benefit the reader? The style of Step Up and Play Big® approaches the reader in the same way I coach: directly and in a practical “hands-on” manner.

My overall goal is to show the reader that it doesn’t require a great deal of extra effort to be exceptional i.e., to Step Up and Play Big. You will be given simple but effective strategies and tactics you can use to...

These are just a small sample of what can be found in the book.

There are exercises at the end of each chapter to help you implement the tactic or skill discussed. At the end of the book there is a template to help you create your own self-development game plan. The “stuff” in the book works only if you “work the stuff”.

Here’s what some readers who have previewed the book have said:

“The Coach’s 8 simple steps are a compelling prescription for how simple it is to achieve your goals. Chris provides “to the point” practical insight and advice about how to be action-oriented to achieve personal and business success. This book “Plays Big” for anybody looking to unlock their talents and pursue their dreams. Masterfully done”

“Business executives are regularly flooded with books, conference offerings, internet solicitations and the like on the subjects of self-help, business acumen, improvement ‘how-tos’ etc. In this book Chris Ruisi has really nailed down the key essentials of doing it right! This is an easy, informative and fundamental read for the business community in general, not to mention an executive who wants to move ahead.”
