The Obstacle is the way;Ryan Holiday
We give up too easily. With a simple change of attitude, what seem like insurmountable obstacles become once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Ryan Holiday, who dropped out of college at nineteen to serve as an apprentice to bestselling ‘modern Machiavelli’ Robert Greene and is now a media consultant for billion-dollar brands, draws on the philosophy of the Stoics to guide you in every situation, showing that what blocks our path actually opens one that is new and better. If the competition threatens you, it’s time to be fearless, to display your courage. An impossible deadline becomes a chance to show how dedicated you are. And as Ryan discovered as Director of Marketing for American Apparel, if your brand is generating controversy – it’s also potentially generating publicity. The Stoic philosophy – that what is in the way, is the way – can be applied to any problem: it’s a formula invented more than 2,000 years ago, whose effectiveness has been proven in battles and board rooms ever since. From Barack Obama’s ability to overcome obstacles in his election races to the design of the iPhone, the stoic philosophy has helped its users become world-beaters.

Ninety-nine percent of all leadership occurs not from the top but from the middle of an organization. Usually, an organization has only one person who is the leader. So what do you do if you are not that one person? And can you make an impact through your leadership even if you report to someone who is not a good leader? You don’t have to be held hostage to your circumstances or position, says author and trusted leadership mentor John C. Maxwell. What’s the secret? You learn to develop your influence from wherever you are in the organization. In this inspiring call-to-action, Maxwell shows middle managers how to leverage their unique positions and become 360-Degree Leaders by exercising influence in all directions—up (to the boss), across (among their peers), and down (to those they lead). The 360 Degree Leader will equip you with the skills you need to begin making a difference in your organization, career, and life, today—with or without the promotion.
