Bounce! Failure, Resiliency, and Confidence to Achieve Your Next Great Success
Barry J. Moltz
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Bounce! is about developing confidence, but not just any sort of confidence. It's about developing the kind of true business confidence that prepares you for both failure and success.
But this is not a book about coming back from failure.
Comeback books have been written many times before. The comeback is romanticized in society and totally overrated. In Bounce!, you'll learn about accepting failure as a normal part of the process even when there isn't something to learn from it. Failure that offers no real learning value jolts the business belief system.
In Bounce!, entrepreneur and business owner Barry Moltz explains that both success and failure are simply outcomes in the normal life cycle of business—a life cycle in which overall process matters far more than any single event or outcome. Great businesses are those that develop the resiliency to bounce through these cycles to succeed over the long term. Using a blend of personal experience and firsthand interviews with business leaders, Moltz shares the practical tools and techniques that every business needs to survive the cycle of ups and downs. In Bounce!, you'll learn the "building bands" for true business confidence, including:
"Moltz shows us that when we recognize failure as simply part of any business experience and approach it with humility and endurance, we can all have the true confidence we need for future success."
—Mickey Konson, Vice President, Small Business Solutions, Capital One
"Bounce! is about how to build long-term business confidence through success and failure. Moltz captures the essence of resiliency by helping businesspeople learn from all of the business outcomes they experience over their career."
—Alan A. Brown, Executive Vice President, Nuveen Investments
"Thank you, Barry Moltz, for getting past the 'you can turn it around' cheerleading and the 'failure is your teacher' balms that are supposed to somehow ease our pain when we hit bottom in spite of our best efforts. Thank you for taking a hard, honest, and often humorous look at failure for what it really is, and most of all for providing some real practical advice for getting through it."
—Scott Allen, About.com, A New York Times Company
"Can you Bounce? This is the book about the inevitable failures we all will experience and how we can best survive them. Moltz offers no false hope . . . just real tools for developing the resilience needed for sustained success."
—Steven S. Little, author of the bestseller The 7 Irrefutable Rules of Small Business Growth
"Afraid of failure? Just Bounce!"
—Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind
