Positive Intelligence by Shirzad Chamine (Saboteurs)
In this book, Shirzad Charmine, reveals how to achieve one's true potential for both professional success and personal fulfillment by helping us address our internal Saboteurs. Saboteurs are invisible inhabitants of our minds that fool us into believing they are there to help, but this is not the case.
In my work, I regularly speak with clients about the importance of becoming aware of their saboteurs and how they might be adversely impacting their career journey. Together, we work to bring them out of the darkness and into the light so that they an achieve what’s most important to them.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who might be feeling stuck and/or afraid in their career journey. Learn more
