Best-selling author, keynote speaker and researcher Adam Markel surveyed 3000 business leaders for his new book, "Change Proof: Leveraging the Power of Uncertainty to Build Long-Term Resilience."
SAN DIEGO, CA, February 22, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- How do we thrive in the unprecedented new world we now find ourselves in? The answer, says best-selling author, researcher, and international keynote speaker Adam Markel, is to build the resilience we need to power us through the challenges we face, so that we become "Change Proof."
"Change Proof: Leveraging the Power of Uncertainty to Build Long-Term Resilience" is the title of Adam's new book (McGraw-Hill, Feb. 22, 2022). The book is winning praise from leaders such as Brian Halligan, cofounder and executive chairman of HubSpot and senior lecturer at MIT.
"Adam Markel's Change Proof tackles complicated topics with simplicity and exceptional storytelling. It's an important read for leaders building resilient teams," Halligan says.
In ongoing research for "Change Proof," Adam surveyed more than 3000 business leaders and executives on resilience and burnout using a proprietary tool he developed, the Resilient Leader Assessment (resiliencerank.com). He studied how resilient leaders and organizations respond to existential crises, and what differentiates those that succeed from those that fail.
"My premise is that the best way to deal with change is to embrace it — to accept it, to work with it, and to profit from it — personally and professionally," says Adam, author of the #1 Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, and Publisher's Weekly best-seller, "Pivot: The Art & Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life."
To do this requires "doubling down on your resilience rituals, committing at a deeper level to show up for yourself (mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually), and creating a got your back environment for your leaders and teams," Adam says.
More advance praise for "Change Proof":
"Adam has done it again with Change Proof. Resilience, real-life solutions to chaos, and practical ways you can use them to learn and lead in your organization."
—Garry Ridge, chairman and CEO of WD-40 Company
"The first book on change to invite readers to be emotionally engulfed in dramatic uncertainty, and then rationally receive the tools to effectively deal with it. If this book were a movie it would feel like 'Raiders of the Lost Ark.' Get ready for a wild ride."
—Chip R. Bell, author of "Inside Your Customer's Imagination"
"Thinking about change often brings up in us rolling panic and a sickening fear of the unknown. Adam Markel turns that on its head with 'Change Proof,' offering leaders an opportunity to confidently adapt to, and even pursue, change. Take the opportunity to build resiliency in yourself, your relationships, and your business. A must read!"
—Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times number-one best-selling author of "Triggers," "Mojo," and "What Got You Here Won't Get You There"
"How do you make sure your folks are crushing it without getting crushed in the process? Adam Markel's 'Change Proof' is a guide for building resilience into the very fabric of your team. It's hard to imagine a more important book for our tumultuous times."
—Steve Farber, author of "The Radical Leap" and "Love Is Just Damn Good Business"
