What If Climbing The Corporate Ladder Is Not The Answer?

July 6, 2022; 12:00 PM-1:00 PM EDT

We spend about a third of our lives on the job. Like many, you may find yours boring and stressful. About another third of our lives is spent sleeping—assuming job stress isn’t keeping us up all night. That leaves the remaining one-third—slightly more than two days a week—to devote to the people and passions that make life most worth living. 

Success contributes to our need to feel good about who we are, knowing that we matter and that people see us, acknowledge us and our contributions, and appreciate us. Striving for success in the workplace—what we “do for a living” – plays a major role in how we define personal success. But achieving impactful results isn’t about what you do, it’s about who you are when you’re doing it, explains Dr. Alan Patterson. In his new book, Burn Ladders. Build Bridges, he shares decades of insights and conclusions about why so many people are so unhappy in their jobs and what they can do about it. 

Whether you are starting out or are an experienced professional contemplating higher levels of satisfaction, Patterson dispels common myths and offers practical steps to enhance job skills and build mutually beneficial relationships that put you on the road to becoming a Ladderburner:

- How to bypass traditional workplace games.
- How to create impact, build meaning, and fuel your passion to do bigger, greater things.
- How to put people at the center of your pursuit and connect to the heart of what matters most.
- How more diversity makes for better business.
- How to take ownership, control your destiny, and discover untapped potential.
