A Roadmap for Transforming Ambition into Achievement
In the sea of thrown-together, stereotypical leadership advice, Julia Tang Peters’ Pivot Points stands out like a beacon. This book is not the result of trite 10-step recipes or unstudied observations. Instead, its source is in-depth research conducted among some of the country’s most effective leaders.
Intimate interviews and broad survey data reveal that the leaders who stand out are the ones who fearlessly face the decisions that characterize career turning points. Amazingly, the people who break through barriers to transform industries encounter—and effectively confront—the same five critical decisions. In Pivot Points, you’ll read how five inspiring and approachable leaders made the choices that cemented their legacies.
Pivot Points is a unique opportunity to learn from the leaders you should learn from—authentic, independent-minded people with a genuine desire to help others understand how to lead. Tools developed from their candid accounts will help you measure and assess your own career trajectory. With a self-diagnostic questionnaire based on the book’s unique framework, you’ll be able to identify warning signs of stagnation and sustain the passion to achieve. Gain practical insights from this valuable aid for professional development of high achievers in every career stage.
Pivotal decisions can turn an ordinary career into an extraordinary journey to success. The journey is a highly individual one, and Pivot Points will inspire and guide you in the processes of finding your own path to exceptional results. Take a rare look into the process of shifting from the science of management to the art of leadership, and let this one-of-a-kind book propel you toward achieving your best self.
