    schema:description "A software engineer sees her tech skills slipping even as she rises to manage her own team. A marketing director is squeezed between a demanding, artistic boss and her staff. A tech-savvy manager of operations wants to modernize his warehouse but is surprised when he is stymied. Everyone has experienced a situation at work where challenges pile so high that the only solution seems to be to cut and run. But what if we faced our problems head on instead of quitting? Each fictionalized case study in Work the Problem is coupled with in-depth analysis and commentary by two experts who offer fresh ways of looking at seemingly insurmountable difficulties from perspectives such as performance improvement, organization development, and human resources. The result is an engrossing collection of unique yet familiar stories that build on one another, creating a conversation about universal workplace problems and how we can think about solving them for ourselves. Work the Problem is about more than the specific demands of any one workplace--it's about cultivating the mindset and skills to take on the inevitable challenges that will arise in any career. Whether you're thinking of quitting your job, you feel stalled out at your workplace, or you're advising someone who has hit a wall, Work the Problem is the book to reach for."@en ;
