Wharton business school professor, G. Richard Shell, teaches you how to define your success personally in Springboard

'Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life' -Steve Jobs

Everyone knows that you are supposed to 'follow your dream'. But where is the map to help you discover that dream?

In Springboard, award-winning author and Wharton School professor G. Richard Shell challenges you to set aside ideas of success as defined by society, family, and the media. Instead he asks you to honestly answer two questions: What, for me, is success? How will I achieve it?

Drawing on decades of research, Shell helps you probe your past, imagine your future, and measure your strengths. By identifying your unique passions and capabilities you will focus more on what gives meaning and excitement to your life.

Get ready for the journey of a lifetime - one that will help you reevaluate your future and achieve success on your own terms. Students and executives say that G. Richard Shell's courses have changed their lives. Let this book change yours.

'A new way to look at success that can transform your life' -Daniel Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive

'This inspiring guide will give you the tools to turn your calling into your Monday morning reality' -Laura Vanderkam, author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast

G. Richard Shell is the Thomas Gerrity Professor of Legal Studies, Business Ethics, and Management at the Wharton School. The creator of Wharton's popular "Success Course," his previous books include the award-winning Bargaining for Advantage and, with Mario Moussa, The Art of Woo. He lives with his family near Philadelphia.
