From the Inside Flap
'An important work that should be read by all who have wondered if they might be uncommonly intelligent . . . by all corporations seeking to attract and keep highly competent employees . . . and by all those who seek guidance in actualizing their potential.'
Linda Silverman, Gifted Development Center, Denver, Co.
'Highly readable and well-organized prose . . . . useful tools . . . . Read and learn about practical ways to be most fully yourself. You will be challenged and intrigued by the information here.'
Betty Maxwell, Visual-Spatial Resource, Denver, Co.
Quite often uncommon competence, creativity and drive remain hidden or partially used by its owners. Do they perceive the gift of being uncommon as a millstone instead of an enjoyment?
This book introduces and illustrates three practices for Extra Intelligent People (XIPs) to become more effective in their work and private life, for their own sake and for the sake of their environment. These practices are based on ten years of experience in coaching XIPs and on various concepts from literature. Together they offer a practical tool for sustainable personal and career development of uncommonly intelligent and intense people. There is much to enjoy about being uncommon!
