Edge : Turning Adversity into Advantage, Paperback / softback Book

Edge : Turning Adversity into Advantage Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


There's power in owning the obstacles you might face.

This book shows you how to unlock it. In an ideal world, we'd succeed based on our actual skills and performance.

But in the real world, subtle perceptions and stereotypes - about appearance, race, gender, experience and more - colour others' perceptions.

The result might be that your hard work isn't noticed or appreciated, your effort doesn't lead to proportional rewards and your good ideas aren't taken seriously. But it doesn't have to be that way. As Harvard Business School Professor Laura Huang has discovered, there's a way to flip stereotypes and obstacles in your favour.

Drawing on compelling case studies and her groundbreaking research on overcoming bias, Huang explains that by finding your edge, you can turn perceived disadvantages into real strengths - and into real success. Creating an edge is the key to succeeding within an imperfect system. Edge will help you make your hard work work harder for you.

It will help you be seen - and empower you to take the spotlight with authenticity, charm and poise.
