Stretching Your Learning Edges: Growing (Up) At Work

Personal growth animates professional growth; professional growth animates personal growth. This book offers mindsets and practical resources for guiding and stimulating your learning journey and illuminates the intertwined nature of individual and organizational development.

Richly rooted in adult development theories, Jennifer Abrams defines five facets of what it means to grow (up) in a work context:

Facet #1 – Know Your Identity Facet #2 – Suspend Certainty Facet #3 – Take Responsibility Facet #4 – Engage in Reciprocity Facet #5 – Build Resiliency

You’ll find rubrics for self-assessment and exercises for each of these qualities interspersed with videos, stories, and quotes that illuminate and educate.

This book will reframe your ideas about professional relationships and provide resources for navigating the inner and outer tensions of working productively with teammates and colleagues.

This is a book for self-study and for shared learning with colleagues. It offers a treasure trove of insights, actions, and options for educators seeking greater self-awareness, and increased emotional and mental resourcefulness to meet the challenges of these demanding times.

Jennifer Abrams is an international education and communications consultant for public and independent schools, hospitals, universities, and nonprofits. She trains and coaches teachers, administrators, nurses, hospital personnel, and others on new employee support, supervision, being generationally savvy, having hard conversations, and collaboration skills.
