The desire for continuous self-improvement is part of every executive’s professional DNA. The amount of time you spend shaping and improving your organization should never completely eclipse your efforts to improve yourself. Soundview is now featuring three new Soundview Executive Book Summaries that will help you improve three critical parts of your development: communication, change and boundary breakthroughs.
How to Say Anything to Anyone by Shari Harley: In How to Say Anything to Anyone, you’ll learn how to ask for what you want at work, improve all types of working relationships, reduce the gossip and drama in your office, tell people when you’re frustrated in a way that resonates, take action on your ideas and feelings, and get honest feedback on your performance. Author Shari Harley shares real-life stories of people who have struggled to get what they want at work. With her clear and specific roadmap in hand, Harley enables you to create the career and business relationships you really want.
Changeology by John C. Norcross, Ph.D.: Change is hard. But not if you know the 5-step formula that works whether you’re trying to stop smoking or start recycling. Dr. John C. Norcross, an internationally recognized expert, has studied how people make transformative, permanent changes in their lives. Now his cutting-edge, scientific approach to personal improvement is being made available in this indispensable guide. Unlike 95 percent of self-help books, the Changeology plan has a documented track record of success. In his book, Dr. Norcross gives you the tools you need to change what you want within a mere 90 days.
Boundary Spanning Leadership by Chris Ernst and Donna Chrobot-Mason. We live in a world of vast collaborative potential. Yet all too often, powerful boundaries create barriers that can splinter groups. And this can lead to uninspiring results. To transform borders into frontiers in today’s global, multi-stakeholder organizations, you need Boundary Spanning Leadership. Powered by a decade of global research and practice by the top-ranked Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), this book takes you from rural towns in the United States to Hong Kong’s skyline and from a modernizing South Africa to the bustling streets of India, showing you how to build bridges across boundaries.
All three summaries are now available for download in multiple digital formats.
