When The Curveballs Keep Coming
Life and business throw a lot of curve balls, and the rate of disruptions continues to accelerate. Before launching her own advisory firm, Bobbie LaPorte spent more than 20 years on the firing line in C-Suite roles in blue-chip companies and technology ventures. As a six-time Ironman Triathlete who's seen it all, Bobbie blends real-life scenarios with science-based solutions to help leaders build the capacity to be ready for anything.
If you are a leader in today’s dynamic and changing business environment, your world has changed. Forever. It feels like there is no control and no certainty of what is coming next. Without certainty, feelings of competence and confidence can disappear, and you may be stuck, wondering how to move yourself or your team forward. Bobbie LaPorte has worked with hundreds of executives across all types of organizations and understands how even the most capable and courageous leaders are desperately seeking some stability so they can regroup and respond. In When the Curveballs Keep Coming: A Leadership Playbook for an Uncertain World, LaPorte provides insight into the ripple effects of leading through uncertainty and explains how you can adopt a possibilities mindset to always find “the next win” for you and your team.

Book cover type
This leadership book is about the challenges leaders face in uncertain times. I want the cover to be intriguing, compelling; bold and bright. To create a visceral reaction
What to avoid
Nothing fluffy or light - also this DOES NOT have to have an actual baseball on the cover. Please be creative in what "curveball" could look like

Alek did a fantastic job. My descriptions were sometimes vague, and I'll admit I'm a little indecisive on things, but he kept coming back with great options until we found the right fit. Very professional and always looking to make the cover better. Highly Recommended :)
