The Adversity Paradox
IN THIS SUMMARY
Adversity can be a friend. Whether it is working to overcome humble beginnings, lack of knowledge, or unexpected setbacks, failure has a way of making people take stock of their careers and lives in a way that success does not. It is how people deal with setbacks, misfortunes, and obstacles that separates those who fail from those who thrive.
In The Adversity Paradox, authors J. Barry Griswell and Bob Jennings explain how professionals can take advantage of adversity and use it to improve themselves, enhance their skills, regain focus, and better their situations. All of these factors positively impact the development of business savvy—a core component of success. Business-savvy leaders take the knowledge gained from adversity and use it to develop their individual human capital, all the time enhancing it with the unequaled principles behind “and then some.”
