Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Change. It’s your job. It just won’t stop. It’s relentless. It keeps coming at you like never-ending rapids in a permanent whitewater river. Change will burn you out if you don’t learn how to handle it. This book is not, however, about mere survival. It is about thriving amidst the challenges of your permanent whitewater world at work.
  • Protect your career, improve your resilience, and seize the opportunities in turbulent times
  • Take charge, learn to pace yourself, set your own course, and lead others in ad-hoc teams
  • Ride the rapids and rediscover play and adventure in today’s demanding work environment
  • Learn from research and the experiences of hundreds of professionals in industries from energy to telecommunications to financial services to health care
There’s nothing abstract or cute about the way this book talks about change: This is practical, grounded knowledge for managing your life in a business world that’s churning with change. Gregory Shea, Ph.D. and Robert Gunther show how to keep your working life on course instead of being pushed beyond your limits...find fun and fulfillment...regroup and rebound from failure...protect yourself from events you can’t predict...take charge of your life, an your future!

—Warren Bennis, Ph.D., University Professor, University of Southern California, coauthor, Judgment: How Great Leaders Make Winning Calls and Transparency: How Leaders Create a Culture of Candor
