    How outsiders can get ahead in an insider's world

    Do you look different than your colleagues? Think differently? Act differently? You're probably an outsider. Possibly you suffer for it. Maybe your co-workers disrespect you. It's tough to have a good day at work. Perhaps you can't change whatever makes you different - your skin color, your accent, your body type. And why should you? getAbstract recommends professional outsider David Couper's book, which explains to all self-professed outsiders how to accept their own uniqueness. Couper says glory in who you are, and turn your otherness into an advantage. He teaches outsiders how to be satisfied at work, present themselves in new ways, get the jobs they want and move inside.

    Outsiders might look and sound different but they are usually the visionaries, the passionate, the enthusiast, the most creative and they scare the living daylights out of ordinary people. Finally, there is a book written specifically for outsiders. David Couper explains in his book "Outsiders on the Inside" why outsiders feel like they don't belong when they desperately try to fit in to a group. He breaks it down in to situations, how it feels to be an outsider in that situation and then gives you solutions to turn that situation to your favor. Surprisingly, it's not that painful, maybe a tweak here and there or toning it down a bit in order to get remarkable results. I especially liked the last chapter "Putting it All Together" which is like a work book on yourself. For outsiders, this is a way to control and focus all of that creative energy without looking or sounding "over the top". Practice what David Couper preaches in this book and soon you will not be on the outside but embraced on the inside.
