Tom Ritchey (Author) | Alan Axelrod (Author)

I'm Stuck, You're Stuck
Do you feel stuck? Are you trying to figure out how to get unstuck?
  • Presents a personal profile that takes less than ten minutes to complete but offers lessons for a lifetime
  • Helps you focus on your reactions to a particular situation, reflect on what’s working and what’s not, and act in more conscious and productive ways
  • Exposes the limitations of traditional performance improvement strategies

Often when people feel stuck, they try to change something about themselves. Authors Ritchey and Axelrod suggest that instead they should learn to see situations in new ways and create new options for themselves and others. That process begins with DiSC, an assessment tool that reveals what style one typically uses: Dominance (direct and decisive), Influence (optimistic and outgoing), Supportive (sympathetic and accommodating), and Conscientious (concerned and correct).

This book teaches readers how to recognize their own style and its implications, how to read the style of others, and how to choose the most effective style (or combination of styles) for any situation. I’m Stuck, You’re Stuck will help readers better understand why they and other people do the things they do in difficult situations and learn to respond to these situations mindfully, respectfully, and effectively.
