It requires very specific emotional and rational skills. You can learn those skills from this book. Drawing on leading-edge research with hundreds of entrepreneurs who have experienced both failure and success, From Lemons to Lemonade offers powerful strategies and practical techniques for managing the emotions generated by failure, so failure becomes less painful, learning happens faster, and you grow as much as possible from the experience. Dr. Dean Shepherd shows how to clarify why you failed, so you can walk away with insights you can actually use...helps you discover when to "pull the plug" on a failure in progress, so it won't last longer or feel even worse than necessary...shows how to eliminate secondary stresses that aggravate failure or make it more likely...helps you maintain your commitment to excellence even when you know that repeated project failure is likely...helps you master the self-compassion and self-caring you deserve in times of trouble. Let's face it: failing is never easy. But From Lemons to Lemonade will help you make it less painful and more useful and help you move from failure to success far more rapidly.

About the Author:

Rawn Shah is best practices lead in the Social Software Enablement team in IBM Software Group, helping to bring the worldwide population of more than 350,000 IBMers closer together and to improve their productivity through social software. His job involves investigating the wide range of social computing technologies, collecting best practices, measuring the usage and behavior of social software as it impacts productivity, and advising on implementation, governance, and operations.

 

In his prior job as community program manager for IBM developerWorks, he led a team of operations and development staff covering the worldwide network of thousands of communities, blogs, wikis, and social computing environments supported by IBM. He also led the creation of the developerWorks spaces software tool, a multitenant system to allow individuals and teams to bring many social tools together into their own focused social environments.

 

An avid software gamer, he has been involved in the online gaming world since 1990, both as a player, a guild leader, and hosting massively multiplayer games. He has witnessed how these social environments have grown from underground curiosities to the billion-dollar businesses of today, with the nature of social grouping and collaboration evolving hand in hand with every new offering.

 

He has previously served as network administrator, systems programmer, Web project manager, entrepreneur, author, technology writer, and editor in different business environments: as a sole proprietor, in a small startup, and in a Fortune 50 company. He has contributed to six other books, the most recent being the category-leading Service Oriented Architecture Compass, which since has been translated into four languages. His nearly 300 article contributions to technical periodicals such as JavaWorld, LinuxWorld, CNN.com, SunWorld, Advanced Systems, and Windows NT World Japan, covered a wide range of topics from software development to network environments to consumer electronics.
