Your real job today is change, both professionally and personally. We live in a paradoxical world, a world in which the one constant is change. Old mindsets and old skills not only don't work in this world, they can prove destructive. Your Job Survival Guide orients you to our era of non-stop, continual, and accelerating change. This book provides you a mindset and the skills necessary to thrive in this environment.

Other books focus on the broad, abstract principles of leading or surviving change. This book recognizes that your real job today is change and helps you get that job done in a crazy world…without driving yourself insane.
