Details about Finding Your Own North Star
Finding Your Own North Star ePub PDF free download – This book owes a great deal to my students at the American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird), who put up with my unorthodox teaching style, forgave me for my mistakes, shared their life and career histories, and urged me to explore my interest in “life design.” In particular, I’d like to thank Jessica Walters and Susan Bagdadhi for their insight, energy, and sensitivity. I’d also like to thank the individuals who allowed me to interview them, in an undisguised attempt to steal the secrets of their success. The ideas for this book began to take shape while I was working as a research assistant for Dr. John Kotter, of Harvard Business School. I thank him for hiring me despite my total lack of experience or ability, and for being patient while I developed a little of each. I’m also deeply grateful to Dr. John Beck, of Andersen Consulting’s Institute for Strategic Change (no, the name is not a coincidence). Many of the ideas in this book came from John, and all of them were run through his brain at least three or four times as we debated over our morning lattes.
