Have you ever wondered who you are? The real you?
Sometimes in life, we are faced with crazy circumstances that make us ask that question: Who am I, really? Not the person your parents wanted you to be, or society told you to be? Not the diagnosis that they labelled you with? Not the derogatory name your ex called you? The real, breathtaking you!
Taking a look at who you REALLY are, you get to reinvent yourself and reclaim the narrative of your life.
As you look for the answer to that question, you may decide to turn your life around in ways you didn’t imagine possible.
It is amazing what you can create by asking this simple question.
In this uplifting book, nine courageous people tell THEIR story of reinvention.
They share the events that forced them to ask the question: “Who am I, really?” and how the answer to that question changed their lives.
Are you ready to share in these remarkable reinventions and kick-start your own?
The focus of this book is Change. It is also Organisation and Society Health. These two notions are so intricately intertwined that they are inseparable in the context of living communities.
Change is possibly the most broadly misunderstood concept in society at large, and particularly in organisational life.
Misunderstandings about the nature of change frequently lead to corporate and organisational initiatives that not only fail to meet their intentions, they may well actually cause more harm than good. If you are a leader in any kind of organisation, I imagine this is something you would like to change. … You can.
If these Questions appeal to you, do feel free to step into the dynamic of life, while … Dancing with Change …
Nature’s patterns determine that we ought to be thriving. We’re not. We can change this. There is no better time than now.
“Among the handful of very best books I’ve ever read on ‘change.’ Eric Lynn’s writing speaks to the nature of change and to the imperatives of nature itself in organizational life – rare among organizational theorists and so-called change practitioners. Aphoristic, wry, and wise, each page rings true, a book to be read and re-read. Ponder it and smile. Magnificent.”

In today’s dynamic business world, organizations must adapt, overcome, and improvise to meet quickly and efficiently the pressures and demands of a modern environment. As James Duderstadt summarized, “We face a future in which permanence and stability become less important than flexibility and creativity, in which one of the few certainties will be the presence of continual change.” Organizations must rely on the knowledge, skills, and experience of a wide range of people to solve multifaceted problems, make good decisions, and deliver effective solutions to achieve successfully their strategic vision. The current environment is one of shrinking revenues and increased costs and expenditures, a heightened need exists for value added efforts focused on increasing organizational performance and subsequently increasing business profits. The road to increased organization profits is built on an organizational foundation supporting, reinforcing, and even demanding improved performance. The question to answer is “What does an organization have to do to have its name analogous with high performance?” One can easily observe how organizational high performance is crucial just by watching the real life drama of organization and team performance in combat operations within Afghanistan or Iraq.

Brett’s most recent manic episode has derailed him from life as the director of operations at a prominent software start-up in Texas. He is now at home, fully dependent on his mother, and officially diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Brett is terrified. He has no guarantees on his long-term health, no understanding of how his medication works and is still dealing with hell-like anxiety, restlessness, mania, and depression.
Crossing Back Over: The Practice of Owning and Accepting Bipolar Disorder details Brett’s battle with taming the beast that is bipolar. Written in the same style as part 1 of his story, Crossover: A Look inside a Manic Mind, Crossing Back Over sheds light on what true recovery looks and feels like from a firsthand account.
No matter the environment, recovering from a serious event takes hard work, discipline, patience, and acceptance. Crossing Back Over allows the reader to peek behind the curtain of an individual determined to find a happy life, even with his chronic brain disorder. This book is valuable for anyone who is facing a deeply personal challenge.
