How do I ask for a promotion? Can I succeed without burning out? How do I avoid comparing myself to others?
How to Work Without Losing Your Mind is a relatable and reassuring guide to the messy, stressful and sometimes bizarre side of work that everyone experiences but no one talks about. It will coach you through the shitstorms of working life, whether you're:
- feeling overwhelmed by your workload
- deciding if you should quit your job or go freelance
- battling a micromanager who seems determined to destroy you
- struggling to stay motivated (even though you're pretty ambitious)
- bouncing back from failure or about to be let go
Drawing on her experience at both giant corporations like Google (where her days consisted mainly of aggressive bosses, confusing assignments, complimentary muffins and lots of tears) and scrappy start-ups like The Pool (where she was Editor and Chief at the helm when it all went pear-shaped), Cate Sevilla shares the lessons she's learnt about work so that you don't have to go through the same pain.
Featuring interviews with women like Sali Hughes, Viv Groskop and Daisy Buchanan, How to Work Without Losing Your Mind will provide answers to all the questions you thought only you worried about. It'll be your tonic to a long, hard working week, where you've cried in the office loos and are wondering what to do next.
