From the Publisher:
WHAT'S "YOUR "GENIUS?

 

Most people consider genius to be a gift, a "lightning bolt from the gods" that strikes people like Einstein or Mozart, but not the rest of us. They see it as a quality--like creativity--that has a magical, exclusive, elusive connotation.

That is simply not true, says Gina Rudan. Every one of us has a capacity for genius. Anyone is capable of achieving something so extraordinary that it could change the game for you, your business, and every aspect of your life. In "Practical Genius, "Rudan shows you how to:

- Identify your genius

- Express it in everyday life

- Surround yourself with genius

- Sustain genius for a lifetime of personal and professional satisfaction

- Market your genius to others

Each stage features exercises to guide you along the way, leaving you feeling accomplished and ready for the next stage. The outcome is a profound revelation: You have the tools and ability to realize greatness both in and out of the workplace.

UNLEASH YOUR GENIUS

Forget what you think you know about genius. It's not about having a Mensa I.Q. or painting the Sistine Chapel. Everyone's got genius, but it's up to you to find it, put it to work, and watch it change your life. With the help of "Practical Genius, "you will:

Identify your genius. Where do your passions and your talents meet? (page 23)

Express your genius. What's your story, and how do you share it with others? (page 57)

Surround yourself with genius. Who do you need in your tribe? (page 93)

Sustain your genius. How do you feed and care for your genius? (page 135)

Market your genius. Why are your contradictions actually your largest competitive advantage? (page 165)

NEWS & OPINION: Women in Business(books)

Posted June 22, 2011, 7:19 PM with category of Management & Workplace Culture
As I (and many others) have noted, women business book authors make up a very small percentage of the category, and while the number is growing, often books by women are more niche-oriented or geared toward the personal, so don't get the powerful push or word-of-mouth that more general business books get. So I'd like to spend a little time talking about the books written by women that have landed on my desk recently: This spring, Anne Kreamer's book, It's Always Personal, first intrigued me--no, touched me--due to the personalized publisher copy being used to promote the book. Kreamer wrote: I was told when I started work that if I wanted to be professional, I should never let my feelings show at work--that emotion had nothing to do with success. Read more
