IN THIS SUMMARY
In the world of work, setbacks happen. In Comebacks, Andrea Redmond and Patricia Crisafulli explore the experiences of ten high profile leaders who endured some type of professional upset. The authors identify the lessons that these individuals learned, as well as the work they decided to pursue after leaving their corporate leadership roles. Their interviews reveal that there is no single way to deal with a professional setback. Each person’s personal goals, beliefs, character, and sense of self played a role in defining their path forward.
