“The Un-Game” is based on the premise that we have more to unlearn than learn in order to meet current work and life challenges. "The Un-Game" is both a captivating novel and an inspirational invitation for organizational leaders to engage in a cutting-edge paradigm shift about how 21st-century organizations do business. While speaking specifically to managers and other leaders, it also has universal appeal—we are, after all, managers of our own lives. Like the young protagonist, Sam Adler, who longs to be a great manager, we too want to live our lives with clarity, focus, ease, and grace instead of walking around in a mental fog. With the support of master coach Sophia Zabar and four great manager mentors who challenge his meaning-making system, Sam learns to “unchain his brain” and recognize the roadblocks impeding the constructive change and spectacular success he desires for his struggling customer support department. He learns that—to his surprise—the “enemy” of this deeply needed change is not the enemy after all, but only a loyal opponent whom he can learn to outplay! Through author Ingrid Martine’s incisive four-step process—presented with the clarity of a management manual and the engaging fun of a novel—the reader can learn along with Sam the distinctions and skill-sets that allow him to see and systematically challenge his most closely held and often invisible beliefs, opinions, and conclusions. He finds that, while some still serve him, many outdated notions need to be discarded in order for him to achieve the goals that light up his life. With limiting beliefs no longer invisible, Sam learns—as will the reader— how to design “games worth playing and goals worth playing for.
