Beschreibungen

<p><b>Move beyond empty “life hacks” to connect with your deepest humanity</b></p> <p>In <i>Getting Over Ourselves: Moving Beyond a Culture of Burnout, Loneliness, and Narcissism,</i> human development specialist and leadership coach Christina Congleton delivers an insightful and urgently needed discussion of how people can break out of the tired cliches of the self-help genre, and move toward new levels of connection, engagement, and capacity in navigating an uncertain world.</p> <p>In the book, you'll explore how modern attitudes of individualism that were once freeing now converge with environmental destruction, inequality, and an alarming uptick in depression, substance abuse, and suicide to significantly damage the potential of people everywhere. You'll also find concrete strategies—rooted in developmental psychology—that show us new ways to approach these challenging times.</p> <p><i>Getting Over Ourselves</i> offers:</p> <ul> <li>Insights into why “life hacks,” productivity seminars, and more “adulting” are not the solutions to the issues faced by people today</li> <li>Frameworks that reject the idea that there is a separate, solitary self in need of constant improvement, and connect you with your deepest humanity</li> <li>Effective techniques for fending off burnout and ways to move beyond the unsatisfactory status quo</li> </ul> <p><br />An essential and timely work, <i>Getting Over Ourselves</i> is the antidote to the skin-deep, ineffective “self-help” material that you've been looking for.</p>

<p><b><small>PRAISE FOR</small> GETTING OVER OURSELVES</b> <p>“A timely and thorough exploration of how we can let go of societal expectations and connect to our true self through humility, embodiment and rediscovering a sense of awe and wonder in the world around us.”<BR> <b>—LODRO RINZLER,</b> author of books including <i>The Buddha Walks into a Bar, The Buddha Walks into the Office</i> and <i>Take Back Your Mind: Buddhist Advice for Anxious Times</i>, and co-founder of MNDFL meditation studios <p>“Congleton’s touching stories, research base, and practical nudges offer an elegantly written invitation to embrace the interdependence of self and system, eschewing what has become a norm of self-striving. She gives us hope that our warm embrace will result in good company on the journey of learning, unlearning, growth, and ultimately rebuilding a thriving society for all.”<BR> <b>—ELISE FOSTER,</b> executive coach and co-author, <i>The Multiplier Effect</i> and <i>Beautiful Questions in the Classroom</i> <p>“In a world of disquiet and disconnection, this book provides a critical lens on how to focus inward so we can connect with others in more meaningful ways. Christina Congleton provides a rich tapestry of scholarship, woven together in an accessible way, with actionable guideposts, so that we can become the heroes of belonging we desperately need and yearn for. If the next generations of leaders are going to effectively navigate the challenges we will all inevitably face, we need accessible resources to support our learning, growth, and development. In <i>Getting Over Ourselves</i>, Christina Congleton provides one such text. As a result of her vision for and commitment to a better world, we now have a brilliant book that illuminates why change is necessary and how we each might strategically transform ourselves to be more meaningfully connected inward—and outward.”<BR> <b>—JONATHAN KROLL,</b> founder and executive director, Leadership Trainer; author of <i>Preparing Leadership Educators: A Comprehensive Guide to Theories, Practices, and Facilitation Skills</i>
