Book review of “Be Exceptional: Master the Five Traits That Set Extraordinary People Apart” by Joe Navarro. Navarro was an FBI Special Agent (Ret.) in counterintelligence and counterterrorism.

Navarro gives an in-depth and practical discussion of the five domains of exceptional.

  • Self-Mastery-The Heart of the Exceptional
  • Observation-Seeing What Matters
  • Communication-From Informative to Transformative
  • Action-Make It Timely, Ethical, and Prosocial
  • Psychological Comfort-The Most Powerful Strength Humans Possess

Many “pearls of wisdom” by Navarro in Be Exceptional and here’s two of my favorites:

  • To be exceptional you must do exceptional things every day
  • Exceptional people are made not born

DBA colleagues, you CAN be exceptional! I give the book “Be Exceptional: Master the Five Traits That Set Extraordinary People Apart” by Joe Navarro, a thumbs up. Right?
