Renowned Transformation Experts Steven Bowen and Dr. Terry Lyles Unveil “Becoming Invaluable”: A Blueprint for Unleashing Human Potential

Groundbreaking book offers real-world insights into how to go beyond the utility of value and reach your highest calling in life

Duxbury, MA – October 23, 2023 – Renowned transformation experts Steven Bowen and Dr. Terry Lyles have unveiled their latest groundbreaking book, “Becoming Invaluable,” a dynamic guide to reaching unparalleled human potential. Drawing from their extensive corporate expertise, this book offers transformative insights for personal and professional growth, providing readers with practical steps to overcome challenges, achieve career goals, and establish harmonious work-life synergies.

Bowen, the visionary founder and former CEO of the global consultancy Maine Pointe, brings more than 30 years of experience, while Dr. Lyles, the acclaimed “Stress Doctor,” offers profound psychological and physiological tools. Together, they unveil a multidimensional approach to becoming invaluable, emphasizing attributes such as knowledge, skills, attitude, health, and strength.

“In this book collaboration with Steve, I share my own personal transformative journey, along with examples of how other prominent individuals have become invaluable in their communities,” said Lyles. “Regardless of income or position, the key is finding those skills that are in high demand, embracing lifelong learning, and a willingness to succeed in spite of setbacks.”

“Becoming Invaluable” explores the transformative potential of “willitude” (a combination of willpower and fortitude) and “navigotiate” (a blend of navigate and negotiate). This book provides practical insights through genuine anecdotes and actionable advice. Packed with real-life stories, lessons learned, and practical tips, it offers a comprehensive guide for readers to navigate change, improve their skills, and carve out their distinct path to success.

“Becoming invaluable is truly multidimensional,” said Bowen. “While we may often see it as becoming a leader, or adding value that would be difficult to replicate, it’s really about becoming a better person and reaching your highest calling in life. In the pages of this book, we outline five personal attributes – knowledge, skills, attitude, health, and strength – which are required to achieve this goal and make a positive difference to those around you.”

“Becoming Invaluable” is not just a book; it’s a lifeline for professionals across all industries. As workplaces adapt to remote and hybrid environments, the quest to become indispensable has never been more critical. This book is a roadmap to navigate change, enhance skills, and shape your unique path to success. Whether you’re a recent graduate, a seasoned professional, or someone embarking on a journey of self-improvement, this book is an indispensable resource.

“Everyone is capable of becoming invaluable,” said Bowen. “The path begins with a simple question – what is the highest calling in life you can have? To become invaluable, whether it’s to a single individual or an entire community, is one of the most satisfying things you can do with your life.”

In the spirit of the holiday season, “Becoming Invaluable” makes a thoughtful gift that encourages self-discovery and ongoing personal growth. Explore this transformative journey and discover your boundless potential.
