Silicon Valley wunderkind Rayona Sharpnack has been a schoolteacher, tennis champion, manager and player for a women's professional softball team, and a celebrity who coaches some of the most successful leaders in business. Trade Up! draws on Sharpnack&'s experience, as well as stories of successful leaders she has worked with, to reveal how leaders limit themselves by holding on to ideas or assumptions about ourselves-what she calls your "context" -that are no longer valid. Trade Up! outlines the 5 steps to help leaders gain awareness of these assumptions and trade up from limiting beliefs and behaviors to those that will help them change the world. The 5 steps are Reveal your context : what do you believe about yourself? What holds you back? How do you impact others? Own your context : take stock of the upside and downside of your context, and examine the intended and unintended consequences of it! Design a new context that gets you what you want : begin by asking yourself "how good are you willing to have life be?" Sustain your new context: develop new practices to get this new context to stick! Activate your context and engage with the world : move out of your own concerns and into partnership and community with others to help change the world around you!
