Rebels at Work
A Handbook for Leading Change from Within
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: November 2014
Pages: 182

Ready to stand up and create positive change at work, but reluctant to speak up? True leadership doesn’t always come from a position of power or authority. By teaching you skills and providing practical advice, this handbook shows you how to engage your coworkers and bosses and bring your ideas forward so that they are heard, considered, and acted upon.

Authors Carmen Medina and Lois Kelly—once rebels themselves—reveal ways to navigate your workplace, avoid common mistakes and traps, and overcome the fears that may be holding you back. You can achieve more success and less frustration, help your organization do better work, and—most important—find more meaning and joy in what you do.

    Comments about oreilly Rebels at Work:

    This book offers good practical advice what to do and what to avoid when promoting innovative new ideas into any established human system.

    The book is suitable for anyone trying to improve the current situation in their organisation by influencing others. There is also a chapter suitable for managers or HR people explaining the benefits of introducing change, new ideas and innovation into the organisation.

      Comments about oreilly Rebels at Work:

      As corporate culture become more and more mired in policies and procedures, there is very little guidence for those who struggle against the odds to add meaning and improve their organizations.

      This book offers a lot of inspiration and some practical advice for those who find themselves out of the mold. I really liked how the book clearly defined the types of behaviors that support the rebel's cause and those that don't, as well as excellent actionable advice on gaining credibility, navigating the organizational chart, managing conflict and communicating ideas, as well as dealing with your own self doubt and taking care of yourself.
