Mid-Career Crisis : Why some Sail through while Others Don’t
About the Book

Remember placement season? There were friends you graduated with. You got about the same marks and joined the same organization as trainees. Now, mid-career, you wonder why some have powered ahead while the rest are stuck with old responsibilities and designations.You cannot understand what it is that those who continue to grow are doing differently, what helps them reach the top while others fall behind. Superior knowledge, sharper skills or just sheer luck? Our mid-career is characterized by several questions that start bothering us: Should we stay put and grow, or quit and move to a better-paying, bigger profile? Are we leaders or followers? Should we continue drawing salaries or build our dream start-ups? Shaken by confusion, the self-confidence of our early years changes into misery—and, eventually, a crisis.

In Mid-career Crisis, Partha Sarathi Basu draws upon years of leadership experience in the corporate world to offer life stories and professional insights that will help you face your crisis—because face one you will. If you are already in one, it will show you the way out before it’s too late. And there are write-ups by ten senior corporate leaders about how they dealt with their crises that will teach you valuable lessons.
