If you’ve read my most recent posts, you are probably going to guess that this book’s rating will be a 5 out of 5. If that is true, you are right. Melody Wilding is a licensed social worker and executive coach. For those of you that are empathetic, or what she calls sensitive striver, this book is for you.
I’ve struggled with how to handle worrying. I’ve been taught, and also preached, not to worry until you need to worry–basically, don’t worry until the crap hits the fan. Worrying is an emotion that alerts us to a fear/concern. Wouldn’t it be more smart to plan for the fear versus hoping/praying the fear won’t happen?
Trusting my decisions at work has been a challenge for me ever since I became a manager. I’ve built a team who is smarter than myself as it relates to the frontline processes, but they lack how to navigate on how to get difficult things implemented, too focused on the details versus the whole or able to balance out-of-the-box thinking to something manageable.
