New York, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
November 11, 2014—Perigee Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House, has announced the publication of the forthcoming book from top business and innovation expert Scott Steinberg. Make Change Work for You: 10 Ways to Future-Proof Yourself, Fearlessly Innovate, and Succeed Despite Uncertainty—which reveals how to succeed and stay ahead of the curve, even in fast-changing and highly unpredictable times, by overcoming the fears which hold us back in life and business—is due out January 6, 2015. A practical guide to overcoming obstacles to professional or personal change, Make Change Work for You shows readers how to achieve their goals by boldly innovating and applying 10 all-new habits of highly successful people and organizations.
While business, culture, and competitive landscapes have fundamentally changed, basic principles and best practices for succeeding and future-proofing both yourself and your organization haven't. Offering a mix of compelling stories, research from the social sciences and psychology, and real-world insights, Make Change Work for You demonstrates how to reignite your career, rekindle creativity, and succeed amidst constant disruption by providing the tools needed to master uncertainty and conquer every challenge in life or business.
Make Change Work for You provides a comprehensive overview of the most common factors that lead to self-defeating behaviors, including fear of failure, embarrassment, underperformance, rejection, confrontation, isolation -- and change itself. Using a simple, four-part model, Steinberg helps readers understand and better respond to the challenges that change can bring:
Focus: Define the problem and come to understand it objectively.
Engage: Interact with the challenge and try a range of solutions.
Assess: Review the response(s) generated by your tactics.
React: Adjust your strategy accordingly.
And finally, the book shows how to develop the vital personal and professional skills required to triumph in the “new normal” by understanding and engaging in the 10 new habits that highly successful people share.
“As fast-moving and unpredictable as today’s business world has become, I’m thrilled to offer readers a powerful, practical system that makes it easier for anyone to future-proof themselves by consistently and courageously innovating their way to success,” said Steinberg. “As quickly as today’s business world evolves, it’s a pleasure to partner with Perigee to provide individuals and organizations with the tools tools and solutions they need to adapt at an equally fast-paced clip.”
