You are the new frontier! Welcome to the internally-focused Fifth Wave. In an era where information travels and technology spreads almost instantaneously, the next frontier is about you. Want to succeed in business? Then stop blaming external forces for your failures and look inside yourself - you'll find your work-related problems are firmly rooted in your past.
In this ground breaking book, Morrie Shechtman explains how to:
Recognize your familiar, an amazingly strong and persistent collection of attitudes rooted in your childhood that cause you to act in certain predictable ways.
Learn your on-the-job role. Are you a Fixer, a Bully, an Avoider, or a Schmoozer? Uncovering the answer is the first step toward isolating your familiar.
Drill down and examine the long-buried demons that keep you from optional work performance and a happy life. This process will allow you to diminish the power of your old familiar and move toward a healthier new familiar.
Create accountability groups that foster strong workplace relationships and increase the productivity of every member.
Using organizational case histories and stories of successful individuals who reinvented their familiars and embraced change and growth, Shechtman will prepare you for an increasingly complex future by helping you find the solutions within yourself.
