Dr. Cynthia Howard discovered the work smart principle after working with hundreds of leaders throughout the past two and a half decades. As technology intrudes into work and into our personal lives, Cynthia found that people who learned to embrace transition were the most successful. They intuitively were operating under these principles. She broke the principles into 5 unique areas called levers. The book outlines these levers and provides helpful and practical tips for each.

When you understand the need to focus and the value of your time, you begin to leverage your strengths and experience. This is because you stop the distraction that keeps people from showing up at their best and accomplishing what is most meaningful to them.
