   schema:description "We all experience psychological impasse. This feeling of uncertainty about your next moves in life might come at predictable moments: the loss of a job, the end of a romance, or the death of someone who has long helped you feel recognized, loved, and appreciated. But psychological impasse might also come at unpredictable times: when the career of a lifetime somehow loses its juice, or when you find yourself longing to renew your sense of life's adventure. Predictable or not, psychological impasse brings with it the sense of being stuck or paralyzed. At the office you feel stale or unchallenged. In your personal life you feel agitated, deflated, or downright bored. You know that something must change-and you re desperate to contribute at work, find a reinvigorated role in your family, and dive back into the current of your own life. In Getting Unstuck, business psychologist and researcher Timothy Butler leverages more than twenty years of research to offer strategies for finding your way from impasse to renewed meaning-at work, at home, with colleagues, and with family. Drawing on a wealth of stories about individuals who have successfully transitioned out of impasses, Getting Unstuck provides a practical, authoritative road map for moving past your immediate obstacle-and defining a meaningful path forward."@en ;
