Publisher's Summary

Mike is a great guy who has a wife and young family in Spokane. He is the senior manager of IT for a small software company that has recently been purchased, and as a result, Mike’s life is about to change dramatically. Some alarming stuff happens at work that throws Mike into a bit of tailspin. All this change happens at a time when Mike is already questioning his choices and his future. He turned 40 last year and is wondering about his career, what is meaningful to him, and why this unsettled feeling is growing inside.

Lucky for Mike, he finds a mentor who agrees to help him navigate this critical time in his career. His mentor takes Mike through some useful processes to clarify his thinking and his career direction. Mike’s mentor teaches him that he needs to work in four major “buckets” and that doing so will pay off for the rest of his career by helping him navigate or outsmart nearly any kind of crazy town that comes his way.

Thoughtful, thought-provoking, & thought-changing

I listened to Outsmarting Crazytown straight through without stopping. I was captivated and enthralled; each chapter was quick, to the point, and easy to digest, yet it left me with significant takeaways and tangible things that I could immediately put into practice. It was so well-written, and I found myself able to relate to each story in a different way - much of it even carrying into my personal life.

I finished with a list of mindset tweaks and minor action items that I know will make a huge difference for me as I navigate my career, personal and professional development. One of the most valuable takeaways was being able to step out of my head and view a specific situation from a high-level perspective, which allowed me to confidently determine the solution that I wanted and how to get there.
