Bounce Back Summary

Bounce Back: How to Fail Fast and be Resilient at Work by Dr Susan Kahn

Success. Innovation. Creativity. Growth. We all want these things at work - but the one thing they all have in common is that they involve failure. A fear of failure, or the inability to bounce back and learn from failures, is one of the biggest things that can hold us back in our professional development - so how do we learn how to fail well and develop our resilience? Wherever we work, and whatever role we deliver, we all have the power to change our thinking and our response to failure - Bounce Back is here to help. Written by Business Psychologist Dr Susan Kahn, this book will show you how to embrace failure. Failing fast, failing well, and learning how to be agile and resilient at work is a vital part of being a successful and innovative leader, approaching opportunities with excitement and creativity, and driving forward your personal and professional growth. Packed with practical exercises, inspirational case studies and a useful resilience self-assessment guide, Bounce Back will show you how to invest in your resilience in a deliberate way, and empower you to face risk head-on. From learning how to respond well to critical feedback, to understanding cultural attitudes to failure around the world, this book will help you be a stronger, more resilient you.

Bounce Back Reviews

"Bounce Back is energising, expertly and elegantly written. With well researched explanations and practical exercises to help the reader reflect and advance, Bounce Back will lift you out of 'stuck' and into hopeful and empowered. Every employee should read it. So should their managers and leaders."--Rachel Ellison MBE DUniv, Executive leadership coach
"Dr Susan Kahn writes of that most human of dichotomies: our drive to succeed, and our fear of failure. It is here that she places resilience, not as a binary construct, but something malleable, adaptable, flexible and (importantly) something that can be learned and developed. Powerful exercises bring the material to life, and allow for deeper insights. Bounce Back is a deeply compassionate and optimistic work."--Prof Andreas Liefooghe PhD, Director, Operation Centaur and Founder and CEO of Shrink Technologies
"In Bounce Back, Susan Kahn provides a comprehensive exploration of our resilience both at work and in our personal lives. Susan skillfully weaves insights from neuroscience, psychoanalysis and positive psychology to create a practical and essential guide to building more resilient behaviours. The book also explores issues of human purpose with the help of Aristotle, Frankl and the Japanese idea of Ikigai, as well as key concepts in leadership (and followership!) which explore with kindness and compassion the difficulties that we face leading in the modern world of work. Each chapter finishes with some helpful and readily applicable exercises which can be put into practice straight away by the reader. In short, a thoroughly enjoyable, well researched and hugely practical book which is essential reading in these uncertain times."--Raul Aparici, Coach, Consultant Facilitator and Lead Faculty at The School of Life
"Anyone reading Bounce Back cannot fail to pick up highly useful strategies for achieving results. It is steeped in carefully thought through, logically assembled suggestions. The writing style is informative, practical and backed with robust references. This self-help book covers a broad range of accessible, easy to implement ideas. There will be more than one that personally resonates and that can be actioned to achieve impact."--David Goldstone, Partner, Osprey Clarke Executive Search
