How To Overcome Challenges At Work

AN EVENING IN CONVERSATION WITH JOANNA BARSH 

Joanna Barsh director emerita at McKinsey & Company, where she has worked for more than 30 years, has written a remarkable book, Grow Wherever You Work - Straight Talks To Help With Your Toughest Challenges, in which she dispenses powerful, unvarnished advice for growing through the work challenges all aspiring leaders face.

“The business world is full of catchphrases: follow your passion; think positive; be authentic; suck it up; take more risks; network. All well-intentioned, but let’s be honest. This inch-deep advice just isn’t very helpful. How do real people succeed in the real world of work? That’s the question bestselling author, Joanna Barsh sets out to answer – not by asking motivational gurus, leadership experts, or well-established CEOs but by diving into the trenches with today’s boldest, brightest, up-and-coming leaders.”

Joanna heard stories of important work challenges from over 200 rising leaders in 120 companies and wrote this hands-on guide to help us:

  • Handle rising pressure and recover from colossal mistakes
  • Bounce back from poor performance reviews and use them to up your game
  • Get people on board with you and your mission
  • Deal with office villains like a superhero
  • Take uncomfortable risks and dare to challenge
  • Thrive when everything around you is falling apart
  • Know when it’s time to find another job

She shares raw experiences and on-the-job coping strategies from a rich diversity of voices from all industries – immigrants and first-generation Americans; Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians; Ivy League alums and high school grads; and parents some of whom are single.

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn how ordinary people turn challenges into extraordinary opportunities for action.

A copy of the book is included in the ticket price.
