No matter what your goals, here are the new rules of business that will help you generate success, including:
* Growth strategies that help you establish your independence from external forces and foster strength from within
* Powerful exercises that sharpen decision-making, relationship-building, risk-taking, and other critical abilities
* Steps for processing -- not denying -- the inevitable anger and disappointment that follow organizational change
* Six paradigms on professional attitudes, personal goals, and overall world views, and the interplay of personal values and leadership.

With invigorating insight and far-reaching perspective, Working Without A Net empowers you to face new challenges and circumstances with flexibility, confidence and self-sufficiency.
