BOOKS & MASTERCLASSES

BOOKS
  • The Serendipity Factor: Why leave good luck to chance? (Penguin, 2020), This book is based on over a decade of exploring how we can use uncertainty and unpredictability as a pathway to more joyful, purposeful, and successful lives. It is based on the latest research in psychology, management, neuroscience, and physics, as well as dozens of interviews with leading CEOs, entrepreneurs, and changemakers from around the world who turned the unexpected into opportunity by seeing and connecting the dots. Anchored in a science-based framework and brought to life by inspiring stories and hands-on exercises, it captures how each of us can cultivate serendipity and turn uncertainty into opportunity and sustained success.
