Author Jesse Sostrin has written a new book called, Beyond The Job Description -- How Managers and Employees Can Navigate the True Demands of the Job. The book provides research-driven insights, diagnostic tools, and stories of employees and leaders who have managed to turn their greatest challenges at work into opportunities for breakthrough performance.

Beyond the Job Description translates the world of work and leads readers on a critical path to:

  • Discover the mutual agenda where your individual values and aspirations align with the needs of the team and the goals of your organization;
  • Know what is most important right now and focus on the vital purpose and value-added contributions that can help you stand out and stay ahead of the change curve;
  • Establish a system to identify hidden challenges that undermine your performance and learn to transform those barriers into opportunities for improved learning and performance; and
  • Develop a clear vision and plan to achieve the working life you want

Sostrin is a consultant and speaker working at the intersection of individual and business success. As the president of Sostrin Consulting, he provides consulting engagements for a wide range of companies, including Fortune 500 clients. As an executive coach, he pinpoints workplace problems and identifys solutions that align with company goals and professional development priorities.

As a keynote speaker, his signature blend of inspirational and results-oriented thought leadership translates to highly interactive, skill focused programs that challenge leaders to create world-class cultures within their organizations.

His other recent book, Re-Making Communication at Work, turned the conventional wisdom about “what works with workplace communication” upside down and established his place in the next generation of influential writers and thinkers, challenging everything we thought we knew about success at work.

In addition to his writing, speaking, and consulting, Sostrin previously served as Vice President—Workforce, Leadership, and Organization Development at Wilshire Health and Community Services. He was the executive in charge of all human resources programs and services, and was responsible for company-wide strategic planning, leadership development, and cultural change.
