"Valuable lessons about how to survive in a world that is full of change."
just pulled out one of my most favorite
books ever written and one which has
influenced and directed my life for many
years - your book "The Way of the Ronin".
Now in my 42nd non linear path in the
retail automobile business , I realize
just how much your advise has shaped and
helped me formulate my game plan. Last
month I successfully delivered 32 retail
Honda automobiles (average
salesman nationally does 12 per month) !
Two years ago I won the number one
salesperson satisfaction spot out of 1500
plus advisors in my zone with a score of
99.8%. It was eight years ago I fore went
management aspirations (in various
management positions for 35 years) in
order to better self direct and travel the
Ronin path. I experienced continued sales
and personal growth every year and
maintain a wonderful client base and
personal interpersonal friendly
facilitator status with all my clients.
All this in a down economy. All the
knowledge gained through experience and
overcoming adversity due to handling
change as suggested in your wonderful book
have lead me to this point. I just would
like to say Thank You for writing "The Way
of the Ronin" as relevant today as it was
revolutionary when you first published it!
Peace and Love,
-- Christopher Cole
The Closer’s Song
A Woodstock Novel
|The Way of the
Riding the Waves of Change
Ronin or "wave men" were masterless warriors in 18th century Japan, whose success depended solely on their wit and skill. Ronin careers strategy are based on versatility, independence, initiative and savvy. Rather than focusing on a narrow career path, Ronin build a wide-range of skills, multiplying the career options they can chose from.
The Way of the Ronin offers an inspiring alternative to the linear, ladder-climbing mentality of the corporate world. The book provides strategies to escape from "corporate feudalism" and, instead, thrive on change and create opportunities in the workplace.
As the society transforms
its industrial base to an information base,
organizations must find ways to revitalize and
innovate. The Way of the
Ronin lays a previously uncharted path
to a corporate renaissance. Blending the ideas of
philosophers, trend watchers, and the latest research
management experts with the technology of behavioral
psychology, Beverly Potter shows how to establish
yourself on the cutting edge of that renaissance.
Ronin look like other people. The difference is in attitude and life planning strategy. They do ronin .
Ronin project an aura of autonomy, of being guided from a center within. They take command and direct their lives.
Ronin don't just react to change; they take the initiative and direct their futures.
Ronin do not believe it is possible to find security in one job, in one place, doing one thing. Guided by the belief that change is the only constant,
Ronin develop skills, attitudes, and habits of mind that become adaptable instruments of continuous change and growth.
In times of transition, a Ronin archetype appears as part of the ongoing cycle of stagnation and rebirth. With the Ronin lies hope for a corporate Renaissance, because they have the potential to stimulate innovation and revitalize the corporation.
Prepare for change!
