Description

High-growth organizations need high-growth individuals

Startups, growth-stage companies, and private equity-backed companies all have one thing in common: They need high-growth individuals to execute high-growth plans. As a leader trying to achieve ambitious organizational goals, you need people who can do more than just keep up; you need people who can set the pace. You need high-growth individuals.

Disrupt Yourself helps high-growth individuals--and those trying to attain this status--learn the tools and frameworks necessary to make changes that matter. This book helps you understand how these frameworks of disruptive innovation can apply to your particular path, whether you are:

A self-starter ready to make a disruptive pivot in your business
A high-potential individual charting your career trajectory
A manager looking to instill innovative thinking within your team
A leader facing industry changes that make for an uncertain future

Whitney Johnson used the theory of disruptive innovation to invest in publicly traded stocks and early-stage private companies, and now she applies the framework to the personal and professional growth of individuals. We are living in an era of accelerating disruption, and no one is immune. Johnson makes the compelling case that managing the S-curve waves of learning and mastery is a requisite skill for the future. If you want to be successful in unexpected ways and achieve your wildest goals, follow your own disruptive path. Dare to innovate. Do something astonishing. Disrupt yourself.

Annotation

"The same learning curve model that helps you "Build an A Team" can be used to build yourself into the person you want to be. In Disrupt Yourself, Johnson shows us what this curve looks like and how to ride it. She lays out seven strategies for successfully riding the wave of personal disruption: take the right risks; play to your distinctive strengths; embrace constraint; battle entitlement; step back to grow. Give failure its due; be discovery driven. Each chapter takes each strategy in turn, guiding the reader through understanding of the strategy and then helping the reader to apply it effectively"--
