Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows that you are supposed to “follow your dream.”  But where is the road map to help you discover what that dream is?

 

You are holding it in your hands. In Springboard, award-winning author and teacher G. Richard Shell helps you find your future. His advice: Take an honest look inside and then answer two questions:

 

What, for me, is success?

 

How will I achieve it?

 

You will begin by assessing your current beliefs about success, including the hidden influences of family, media, and culture. These are where the pressures to live “someone elses life” come from. Once you gain perspective on these outside forces, you will be ready to look inside at your unique combination of passions and capabilities. The goal: to focus more on what gives meaning and excitement to your life and less on what you are “supposed” to want.

 

Drawing on his decades of research, Shell offers personalized assessments to help you probe your past, imagine your future, and measure your strengths. He then combines these with the latest scientific insights on everything from self-confidence and happiness to relationships and careers.

Throughout, he shares inspiring examples of people who found what they were meant to do by embracing their own true measure of success.

  • Eric Adler: one of Shells former students who walked away from a conventional business career to help launch a revolutionary new concept in public education that has placed hundreds of inner-city high school students in top colleges.
  • Kurt Timken: a Harvard-educated son of a Fortune 500 CEO who found his true calling as a hard-charging police officer fighting drug lords in southern California.
  • Cynthia Stafford: an office worker who became one of her communitys leading promoters of theater and the arts.
Get ready for the journey of a lifetime—one that will help you reevaluate your future and envision success on your own terms. Students and executives say that Richard Shells courses have changed their lives. Let this book change yours.

Synopsis:

Getting a little better at negotiation can make a big difference in your life. Let a leading teacher at the world-renowned Wharton School of Business make you a lot better.

As director of the Wharton Executive Negotiation Workshop, Professor G. Richard Shell has taught thousands of business leaders, administrators, and other professionals how to survive and thrive in the sometimes rough-and-tumble world of negotiation. His systematic, step-by-step approach comes to life in this book, which combines lively storytelling, proven tactics, and reliable insights gleaned from the latest negotiation research. Shell's unique approach, which starts with a candid self-assessment of your personal strengths and weaknesses, helps everyone from the inexperienced, anxious negotiator to the seasoned veteran. You will learn to:

-- Succeed even when you think you are short on bargaining power

-- Counter hardball tactics and tricks without compromising your ethics

-- Build trust in working relationships

-- Improve your leverage at each stage of the process

-- Decide when to compromise

Laced with entertaining stories about some of the best negotiators of all time — including Benjamin Franklin, J. P. Morgan, Sony's Akio Morita, and Donald Trump — this remarkable how-to guide gives you the tools you need to become a skillful negotiator in every aspect of your life.

Synopsis:

From the creator of the popular Success Course at the Wharton School of Business

 

Finding your own true measure of success begins with two essential questions: Who am I? What will I do with my life? The answers cant come from the outside. You have to search your heart and engage these questions honestly to discover insights that go far beyond conventional notions of fame, fortune, and happiness.

 

Award-winning author and Wharton School professor G. Richard Shell challenges readers to set aside the preconceived definitions of success promoted by society, schools, family, and the media. Then he helps readers replace these old definitions with aspirations based on their unique values, talents, personalities, and motivations. Along the way he shares inspiring stories of others who defined success for themselves.

 

Take a chance. Do what you were meant to do.
