- Concrete Examples
Executive Jennifer Garvey Berger synthesizes the most salient points from her two previous, well-respected reference books on adult development into one slim volume. She adds the fictitious tale of a professional power couple and their adviser to show the dangers of five common mental traps that snare leaders. Each one causes you to filter out information, opinions, data and even irrefutable facts that don’t align with your narrative, your opinion or your ego. This smart self-help book rises well above its genre in its accessible but sophisticated treatment of adult growth.
