Make Everyday Challenges The Key To Your Success --Putting the Principles of AQ Into Action
In 1997, Paul Stoltz unleashed a revolution with his groundbreaking book Adversity Quotient: Turning Obstacles into Opportunities, introducing the concept of the Adversity Quotient into public consciousness. Now, in Adversity Quotient @ Work, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to his bestseller, Stoltz applies the principles of his brilliant theory to the uniquely challenging environment of the workplace.
Adversity Quotient, or AQ, is a measure of one's ability to handle adversity. People who can't handle adversity become easily overwhelmed and emotional, then pull back and stop trying; those who handle adversity well become the leaders of today and tomorrow. Stoltz shows you not only how to measure your own AQ but how to improve it, and how to put these ideas to work for you and your organization. Based on the time-tested principles established by his first book, Adversity Quotient@ Work clearly demonstrates how workers and managers can use the concept of AQ to their own advantage and to the benefit of their clients, customers, and organizations. Designed for managers, supervisors, and employees, from the smallest technology start-up to the largest Fortune 500 multinational, Adversity Quotient @ Work gives readers simple, powerful ways to supercharge their lives and organizations immediately.
Adversity Quotient @ Work teaches readers how to hire and retain highly motivated and talented workers, develop employees to their full potential, and create a leadership culture that encourages all to put forth their best efforts and maximize their performance capabilities. Based on real research performed with thousands of managers and members of the workforce on the front lines of hundreds of businesses, it will quickly become any corporation's indispensable handbook for success.
