內容簡介

七條關鍵原則,為自己作主!
 
  「Agency行動主體性」是心理學,社會學等領域的核心研究課題,指人們得以依照自己的意志做決策與行動──「自己作主」,朝向想要的目標前進。也是讓人過得更自信、充實的重要關鍵!當我們感受到對自己生命的無能為力,行動與決定都不操之在己,無論成果好壞,都難以讓人真正感到滿足。
 
  在現今充滿變動又易受外界影響的生活裡,如何隨著環境適應改變,而不至覺得茫然無措,變得更加重要。兩位哈佛醫學臨床心理學家Paul Napper和Anthony Roa聯手透過最新的研究,以及他們在許多企業提供諮詢的實務經驗,整理出七條重要原則,運用身體與心靈有效地幫助你建立、保護自己的主體性!
 
  本書除提供據研究考證的方式外,亦分享實行此方式後讓生活變得更好的成功案例,把理論與能夠立即運用的菁華完美地融在書中,帶你學會舒緩焦慮、不被慾望驅策,釐清自己的目標與決斷,進而找到適合自己,而非迎合他人觀感的成功道路。不需要花錢找專家或貼身助理,也可以為自己打造高效而充滿意義的生活!找回為人生作主的基本權利。(文/博客來編譯)
 
From two eminent clinical psychologists, how to access your personal agency and adapt to living the life you choose.
 
  Agency is the ability to act as an effective agent for oneself--thinking, reflecting, and making creative choices, and acting in ways that direct us toward the lives we want. It is what humans use to feel in command of their lives. For decades, agency has been a central concern of psychologists, sociologists, and philosophers seeking to help generations of people live in greater accord with their interests, values, and inner motivations.
 
  Renowned clinical psychologists Paul Napper and Anthony Rao offer seven principles for using mind and body to help you locate and develop your own agency. Based on years of research and real-world application, and stories of both high and low performers, their methods equip you to succeed in a world requiring constant adaptation.
 
  The United States has been described as the most anxious nation on earth by the World Health Organization. We struggle to keep clear minds and to think for ourselves, limiting our ability to make optimal decisions in our lives. Nonstop technology and an increasing focus on metrics and performance are part of everyday, and all of these things leave us feeling, in a word, overwhelmed. The Power of Agency gives you the skills and insights to do less and reflect more before making life choices--and plot the steps to create a life on your own terms.
 
Review
 
  "Drawing on decades of their professional experience and cutting-edge research, Drs. Napper and Rao offer keen insights into making decisions that enhance one's life. Whether in parenting, business, physical or mental health, they reveal how agency is key to successful outcomes. This is a book replete with the kind of wisdom that we seek for ourselves and for those we love." ―Jerome Groopman, M.D., Recanati Professor at Harvard University and best selling author of How Doctors Think
 
  “No matter what happens to you in life, you dictate how you respond – that is agency. This book offers the groundwork for making choices that allow you to spend more time on the things you care about and less time on those you’d rather skip. Your relationships will have more warmth, your productivity will increase, and your life will feel more meaningful.” ―Kim Scott, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Candor
 
  “Some books convey deep insights that make you gasp with recognition. Some offer useful practices and tools you can immediately apply. Napper and Rao have written that rare book that does both. The Power of Agency is as practical as it is wise. If you are struggling to manage your work and life in this age of endless distraction, read this book immediately.” ―Amy C. Edmondson, Ph.D., Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School and author of The Fearless Organization
 
  "The deceptive simplicity of The Power of Agency is rooted in the authors' close acquaintance with the complexity of modern life; their genius lies in their ability to show us precisely how to run our own lives rather than to allow our lives to run us." ―Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Driven to Distraction
