THE CATALYST'S GUIDE TO WORKING
WELL, LAUNCHING OCTOBER 13TH
This isn’t your typical changemaking book, because it’s not for your typical changemaker. It’s for the innovators who can’t stop taking in information, connecting dots, and changing the world—even when the world hasn’t asked for it. Even when the changemaker desperately needs a break.
If that sounds familiar, you aren’t broken, difficult, or an incurable workaholic. You’re a Catalyst, and authors Tracey Lovejoy and Shannon Lucas believe that means you’re a rock star. You just need to have the language to understand your process and key tools to help you survive it.
As Catalysts themselves, Tracey and Shannon work to make Catalysts better understood, connected, and supported in their processes. Their new book MOVE FAST. BREAK SHIT. BURN OUT. won’t tell you to stop working—it will help you finally, sustainably work well.
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
In this podcast series Tracey and Shannon are interviewing the Catalysts who were profiled in the book and having extended discussion about what it means to be a Catalyst and how to use that information to grow and thrive.
“If you’ve ever been the one in large organizations trying to push bigger, bolder ways of creating positive change, this book is for you. Lovejoy and Lucas combine research and lived experience to highlight how fast-moving visionary-doers, called Catalysts, operate.”—BETH COMSTOCK, Author, Imagine It Forward and former Vice Chair, GE
“If you embody the disruption mindset, MOVE FAST. BREAK SHIT. BURN OUT is for you! Lovejoy and Lucas have researched and identified a subgroup of changemakers called Catalysts. This book focuses on their inner journey, giving them the self-awareness and tools to consistently disrupt while minimizing burnout.”—CHARLENE LI, New York Times bestselling author of The Disruption Mindset, Senior Fellow at Altimeter, a Prophet company
“This is an excellent body of work, to help you understand the ‘1%-ers’ of your organization that drive and leverage radical innovation. If you are a Catalyst, it will feel like you’re finally home, and you will learn how to enhance your talent. If you lead organizations, it will help you find, support, and use the power of catalysts to reshape your business for the Day After Tomorrow. A wonderful read, written by two super Catalysts!”—PETER HINSSEN, Author of The Phoenix and The Unicorn
“In San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Europe, I’ve come to recognize certain archetypal entrepreneurs. Reading MOVE FAST. BREAK SHIT. BURN OUT I found myself, saying ‘Aha!’ that’s the common golden thread that binds them. They are, as Lovejoy and Lucas joyfully and unsparingly describe, Catalysts: ‘We can’t help but see potential change and set it in motion, wherever we are.’ Want to understand your DNA or gain insights from this change- maker mindset? Read on. A great book for doers!”—JONATHAN LITTMAN, bestselling innovation writer and co-author of The Entrepreneur’s Faces
