We have the summary! Get the key insights in just 10 minutes.
Josh Linkner, also the author of the bestseller Disciplined Dreaming, offers dozens of inspirational stories about pioneering mavericks to motivate you to start “disrupting.” Every story will make you question your ambition, drive and commitment. The book is exhausting in all the right ways – a wake-up call for the complacent, for anyone stuck in a comfortable rut, and for organizations at the top of their game that, unknowingly, may already be on the road to their demise. Are you ready to take action to change your life or radically alter your company’s direction? You’ll appreciate an unusual central character, the city of Detroit, which pops up throughout to demonstrate hard times and the “grit” you need to reinvent constantly. getAbstract believes that no matter what work you do or at what level, Linkner’s tales will inspire you.
In this summary, you will learn
- How disruption, change and reinvention can carve many different paths to success;
- How people and organizations can face their fears and make radical changes; and
- Why your company should change even if it’s at the top.
