Descripción del producto
"This is a fantastic guide to living: well-conceived, beautifully written, filled with wonderful, real-life examples and inspiring messages. Rimm infuses the book with the credo for her own life -- to laugh loudly, love deeply, and nourish all with food for thought. The Joy of Strategy is truly balm for the soul." --Suzanne Bates, CEO of Bates Communications, Inc., best-selling author of Speak Like a CEO: Secrets for Commanding Attention and Getting Results "One of academia's greatest challenges is mastering the essential art of mentoring. The Joy of Strategy not only provides the insight and tools to nurture the extraordinary talents of our young professionals; it demonstrates for mentors how best to mentor. This book should be required reading for organizations that want to reach their full potential." --Gary Gottlieb, MD, MBA, president and CEO, Partners HealthCare "I've had the privilege of seeing Allison Rimm in action. She conveys the why for personal strategy development and then the how in a very understandable and effective manner. This book is a must-read for anyone who would like to help improve their individual effectiveness in both work and personal aspects of their life." --James I. Cash, James E. Robison Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus, Harvard Business School "This is a wonderful and practical book based on the simple premise that work is only part of our life and that work and life should--make that must--be joyful. You'll find the book loaded with strategies on how to achieve this joy." --Lawrence Fish, chairman of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Corporation "Having a background in strategic planning, I approached the book with much skepticism, but I became engaged within the first few pages and ultimately became convinced of the importance of having a personal strategic plan. The author's stories and subtle humor bring to life her approach to strategy and make the book a joy to read. Her ideas are enlightening and well-grounded in practice. Her promise of being able 'to focus on what matters most and to spend your time and talent where it can make a meaningful difference' is a compelling reason to undertake a personal strategy development process. In fact, I began to put into practice some of the ideas as soon as I put the book down." --Raymond V. Gilmartin, former chairman, president, and CEO of Merck and adjunct professor at Harvard Business School "Inspirational leaders know that their primary role is to create and sustain a healthy work environment. This timely book shows readers how to employ the business tools and life lessons Rimm provides to be the leaders of their own balanced and fulfilling lives. She has generously shared her experience, knowledge, and skill, including rich examples of the results people have achieved by putting her techniques into practice. Her work exemplifies leadership at its best. This helpful book provides a wealth of strategies that will help everyone from emerging leaders to seasoned veterans be more effective managing themselves and others." --Jeanette Ives Erickson, DNP, RN, FAAN, SVP for Patient Care and Chief Nurse at Massachusetts General Hospital and co-author of Fostering Nurse-Led Care: Professional Practice for the Bedside Leader "Blending a delicious mixture of classic strategic planning techniques, time management tools, and unique life planning exercises, Allison Rimm's The Joy of Strategy offers a fresh and compelling method to help people facing a life transition, looking to achieve an ambitious goal, or just stuck in their careers. The special added ingredient comes from an emphasis on seizing joy and happiness along the way. Allison brings her ideas to life with compelling vignettes from her extensive practice, making The Joy of Strategy a very authentic and practical guide for a diverse audience. This book will change people's lives!" --Celia R. Brown, EVP, group human resources director, Willis Group, LTD

I have spent so much time studying and working to 'Corporate Strategy' in my (too)many years as a bean counter and I have made several attempts to apply these 'strategic' theories for my own, personal life planning, but it always felt like being on the job, just doing the same s@!#! that I do at work. My oldest son strongly suggested Allison’s book to me. It turns out that he really knew, and cared, more about me than I realized. Her book is a 'spot on' fit. Allison, has an integrity of concern and a spirituality to her advice. She has taken Strategic thinking out of the boardroom, and brought it into my personal life.
Now, my Wife and I are both working to apply the Joy Process in finding our intended path into the future. Allison’s process is certainly serious and proper, and requires significant effort, but its an effort that my Wife and I look forward to each day. It has been a strategic planning process that revealed its promise from the start. For us, it generates its own enthusiasm. And just FYI, Allison has given us some good, specific advice for our ‘Joy For Two’ adventure. I believe this advice can be found on her website. For people in our situation, its worth reading.
In my subject title I said that this is Life Planning, not Retirement Planning. My point is that my Wife and I want to live the rest of our lives, really engaged in our lives; not just planning for how we can afford to sit in rocking chairs for the remaining summers that we have left. I do think that going through this Joy process is a must-do foundation for good Retirement planning.
Okay, so this is my first ‘book review’. I’ve read many good books, but haven’t been motivated to give feedback, until now. So I guess to confirm my feelings, I Really Recommend this book, or Highly Recommend, whatever sounds best.
P.S. – I certainly don’t want to cast any dispersions on the field of Accountancy or make any judgments about people who want to retire on rocking chairs and TV trays. I’m just saying, you don’t have to, if you don’t want to.
This book has helped me reminisce my past enjoyable experiences and a bit hard experiences; reminding me how I dealt with them.
I am very thankful I found a book that I can hear the heart of the author that matched my heart; a heart wanting people who don't know how to strategize too succeed and what it takes.
