A different approach to the leadership games
Get past two of the biggest obstacles you will ever face
If you want to achieve something original and meaningful with your life, you must learn to deal with rejection and criticism.
If you’re an artist of any kind your work will be rejected by editors, curators and other gatekeepers. And each time you put it in front of the public, you expose yourself to criticism.
If you’re an entrepreneur you face rejection by (potential) customers, partners and investors. Those same people won’t hesitate to criticise you if they are unhappy.
If you’re chasing your dream job you’ll receive your share of rejection letters. And once you land the job, taking flak when things go wrong is part of the deal.
If you’re an athlete or sports player it’s a battle to get on the team. And you’ll hear about it from all sides – your coach, your team-mates and ‘supporters’ – if they think your performance isn’t up to scratch.
If you’re a campaigner for change you face inertia, opposition and hostility from everyone with an investment in the status quo. No wonder most people choose not to rock the boat.
This book provides effective ways to build resilience and deal with the rejection and criticism that come your way
