Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Finding the courage to embrace change and take chances is the only way to succeed.

Business, culture, and competitive landscapes have fundamentally changed, but basic principles and best practices for succeeding and future-proofing both yourself and your organization haven't. With a mix of compelling stories, research from the social sciences and psychology, and real-world insights, Make Change Work for You shows how to reignite your career, rekindle creativity, and fearlessly innovate your way to success by providing the tools needed to master uncertainty and conquer every challenge in life or business.

Make Change Work for You opens with a comprehensive overview of the most common factors that lead to self-defeating behaviors, including fear of failure, embarrassment, underperformance, rejection, confrontation, isolation, and change itself.

Using a simple, four-part model, Steinberg helps you understand and better respond to the challenges that change can bring:

Focus: Define the problem and come to understand it objectively.
Engage: Interact with the challenge and try a range of solutions.
Assess: Review the response(s) generated by your tactics.
React: Adjust your strategy accordingly.

And finally, the book shows how to develop the vital personal and professional skills required to triumph in the “new normal” by understanding and engaging in the 10 new habits that highly successful people share:

1. Play the Odds
2. Embrace Tomorrow Today
3. Seek Constant Motion
4. Lead, Don’t Follow
5. Never Stop Learning
6. Create Competitive Advantage
7. Connect the Dots
8. Pick Your Battles
9. Set and Align Your Priorities
10. Always Create Value


“One of the greatest barriers to progress is fear—of failure, rejection, embarrassment, uncertainty, and confrontation. With actionable advice and empowering examples, Make Change Work for You provides the tools we need to succeed in the face of our fears.”
—Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Give and Take

"Practical, hands-on and powerful, Scott isn't afraid to talk about being afraid and how it keeps us down."
—Seth Godin

“This powerful, practical book is loaded with proven strategies to build your self-confidence, become more innovative, and unlock your creativity.”
—Brian Tracy, bestselling author, The Power of Self-Confidence

"A must-read for any working professional - provides the new formula for finding lasting success in your career."
—Dan Schawbel, New York Times Bestselling author of Promote Yourself

"Provides a more personal and practical formula for innovation that's just the prescription for executives looking to break through to the next level".
—Marty Yudkovitz, retired Head of Strategic Innovation, The Walt Disney Company

"Steinberg provides a one of a kind formula for evolution and growth in an age of constant change. His paradoxical findings, from numerous interviews and research: we deal best with change when we use the tools of both change and constancy, changing ourselves, and yet remaining constant in our application of what he calls the F.E.A.R. model--focus, engage, assess, react. It's an eye-opening read."
—Richard Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute
