Recovering workaholic and celebrated life coach Dr. Greg Marcus shares the story of how he cut his hours by a third in a way that made him more productive and more effective at work.
Busting Your Corporate Idol offers a step-by-step approach so you can too.
Busting Your Corporate Idol tells stories from the corporate world the way it really is - where "successful people" secretly suffer from stress-related illnesses, and selfless people become depressed because they don't understand that some people will never reciprocate. You will learn how to avoid these pitfalls.
In this book you see the exact method Dr. Greg Marcus used to reduce his hours by a third while becoming more productive at work. He did this in less than a year, without changing jobs, and in a toxic environment. You'll see step by step how you can do the same thing.
Understand the Root Cause of Overwork
The book starts by explaining that values and priorities determine our decisions and actions. The key to living a happier and more balanced life is a shift from company to people. As you read, Busting Your Corporate Idol will teach you:
Who to trust at work
How to debunk cognitive illusions that lead to stress, anxiety, and longer hours
Why you risk becoming depressed if you don't understand your corporate culture
Work Less, Achieve More
Many books teach you how to cope with stress, recognize depression, or practice time management. Useful skills, but not a long-term solution. More important is a step-by-step approach to change the habits that lead to the overworked lifestyle.
By reading Busting Your Corporate Idol, you will learn to:
Reduce stress, not cope with stress
Say no to the boss while becoming better appreciated for what you do
Protect yourself from politics and backstabbing
Find a community of people who will stick with you no matter what
Start right away with a small step to bring more balance to your life, AND become more effective at work
Are you ready for a shot of hope that you can reduce stress and anxiety without having to quit your job or undergo a career change?

About the Author
For a time Dr. Greg worked 90 hours a week, which impacted his personal health and family relationships. Then, he cut his working hours by a third, and at the same time accelerated his career. The secret? He rejected his corporate idolatry, and started putting people first.
Dr. Greg has done some cool things in his life. As a graduate student at MIT, he helped uncover the basic mechanisms of gene regulation in brewers yeast. As a product manager in the genomics industry, he managed a product line that went from zero to $60 million revenue in three years. And, this product line changed the world of human genetics, with over 1500 published discoveries only five years after it's release.
Dr. Greg left the corporate world for a life as a consultant, speaker, author, and stay-at-home dad. In 2013, he founded the Idolbuster Coaching Institute, which is dedicated to helping the chronically overworked find life balance.
Dr. Greg lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, two daughters, and two cats.
