effort, in business and life, that can separate the good from the

This is an excellent book. I highly recommend it for those that want to make a difference and not just be mediocre.
From Drake Saylors of Anderson, South Carolina on 4/10/2011.
Such a real reminder about how just that "additional extra effort" can make the difference, can produce the pay-off, in accomplishment: 1 more sales call late in the day // 1 more phone call to either a customer, or family member //staying 1 more minute to hear someone's story to completion // 1 more handwritten letter // 1 more compliment(added to the 3 other sincere ones we're supposed to issue - EVERY day, right?) - you get the picture. All I have to do is begin counting to myself: "two-hundred & nine, two-hundred & ten, two-hundred & eleven..." and it sets my mind in a creative mode looking for that "one more degree" of SOMETHING, now. Wonderful stuff. Thank you for the resource.

This book is awesome; started reading when I received in the mail and didn’t put it down until I finished the last page. I believe the message presented in this book is right on target and offers excellent advice in moving your team and business in the right direction for success. Putting your employees first makes for a winning combination, once your employees know how much you care for them, they will go the extra degree.
From Debra Sanford of Dallas, Texas on 4/5/2011.
212 Service is an excellent corporate leadership and motivational book. A continuation from 212, it further defines 212 principles in the workplace. The individual testimonial stories of the principles in action with highly known companies and individuals are really the icing on the cake. Great short read. Very applicable to the workplace and to the home.
