“Blythe McGarvie incites readers to think about the connections between success, ethics, and financial prowess.”
—Steve Ballmer, CEO, Microsoft

Now, in Fit In, Stand Out, McGarvie presents her breakthrough program that will help you become a more effective leader. She reveals how integration and transformation function as the yin and yang of business, working together and balancing each other to form the two sides of leadership success. By mastering these imperatives through the revolutionary FISO FACTOR, you will become a team player while simultaneously advocating change and fostering long-term growth.
Fit In, Stand Out provides the keys to mastering the six agents of FISO (financial acumen, integrity, alliances, learning, perspective, and global citizenship), and the attitudes, behaviors, and characteristics (ABCs) you need to wield them.
