Many people live their lives on a set track. They suppress the interests that sparked their imagination as children, and they choose safe but uninspiring careers and lives. Maybe you’ve reached the breaking point at work, so you finally listen to that inner voice urging you to take a chance, try something better, make a bold career change or start a new business that aligns with your passions. Whether you want to change jobs, take a bigger role in your organization or start your own business, professional coach Nina Segura – drawing from her difficult youth and professional success – offers her take on how to manage personal change, transition and transformation. You will find some solid, familiar counsel here as Segura cites standard sources on leadership and coaching. However, her very personal, spiritual text ranges from offering this routine advice and sounding like promotional material for her work as a coach. To her credit, she also offers useful activities and exercises for those considering significant change. getAbstract suggests her basic advice to people new to the literature of personal and business change.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to make use of the four-stage “ACTT” process for change, transition or transformation
  • Why almost every leader needs a “professional coach” and a supportive “crew.”
