Publisher's Summary

For 15 years, Mike Rognlien has learned from some of the best (and some of the...not best) people in the corporate world. His tenure at Facebook, as a consultant to Microsoft, and at numerous other companies - from insurance to banking to Silicon Valley - taught him valuable lessons in responsibility, ownership and accountability, and the fine art of T-shirt printing. And now, with a mix of wisdom and rueful humor, he's sharing his accumulated work and life lessons with you. Yes, you.

Because if you want your career, and therefore your company, to be the best they can be, that's how you have to start thinking of them: as yours. You have to fully understand the role you play, the good and the bad impact your behavior has on all of the people around you, and the unconscious biases that can control your thoughts and decisions if left unchecked. You have to be sure that this is what brings you real fulfillment. You have to be prepared to fail spectacularly badly and recover with a flourish.

And you have to be ready to control your wrath when you're served duck twice in one week. (Trust us - the story does apply to you.)

It wasn’t for me

This is not a book for actual company owners, but this might appeal as a graduation present for someone who can benefit by understanding the importance of taking their job seriously, and that their behaviors and attitudes become the company culture. Some pointers on bringing your best. Nothing too earthshaking in here for you if you’re an emotionally intelligent adult, but the way it’s told might appeal to the younger crowd.

Excellent book!

This book is as entertaining as it is insightful, educational and inspirational. Mike Rognlien has done a fantastic job of weaving anecdotes and real life experience into the message in a way that keeps you listening and wanting to absorb the material. He lets you know it’s not only ok to be human but to embrace your humanity and learn to fail forward when needed, not get in your own way, and celebrate the wins along they way.
