Lessons for thriving in your own life and leadership

We live in a challenging  world. The changes affecting us are swift, unpredictable and often unsettling. This can leave us feeling anxious and overwhelmed. Thriving in these turbulent times is an art and in this book, Jo Boniszewski shows you how.

Jo takes you on a journey, a series of lessons for thriving in your own life and leadership. Every chapter includes her own personal stories. Jo is open and vulnerable in sharing her struggles – stories of when things were hard, when she was afraid or not at her best. She describes not only how she got through her challenges, but also what she learnt from them. Daring to take such a personal approach in writing this book, is what makes it so powerful.

 Jo was and still is a huge part of a major employment transition I recently embarked on. She has supported me through the ride with her humane yet business-minded approach. Jo will challenge you and your teams to not just identify your goals, but truly embrace them and move out of your rut to get there. Just like Jo’s approach, her book is conceptional, forward-action oriented and supportive. Jo reminded me to re-learn how to make life and work fun. Are those crazy times? Yes, absolutely, and Jo’s sharing her wisdom in this book will support you to come out on top. It couldn’t have come at a better time and will be there with you to thrive in turbulent times!
