Springboard: Launching Your Personal Search for Success
by : G. Richard Shell,
Wharton business school professor, G. Richard Shell, teaches you how to define your success personally. Finding your own true measure of success begins with two essential questions: Who am I? What will I do with my life? The answers can't come from the outside. You have to search your heart and engage these questions honestly, to discover insights that go far beyond conventional notions of fame, fortune and happiness. Award-winning author and Wharton School professor G. Richard Shell challenges readers to set aside the preconceived definitions of success promoted by society, schools, family, and the media. Then he helps replace them with aspirations based on their unique values, talents, personalities, and motivations. Along the way he shares inspiring stories of others who defined success for themselves. Take a chance. Do what you were really meant to do. G. Richard Shell's previous books, available in fourteen languages, include the award-winning Bargaining for Advantage and The Art of the Woo (with Mario Moussa). He teaches college students, MBAs, and senior executives about success and directs the Wharton School's Executive Negotiation and Strategic Persuasion Workshops. He lives with his family near Philadelphia.
