"Jim Jawahar provides practical solutions to real-world scenarios that are supported by solid academic research. Whether you're wearing your 'management hat' as a business leader, or an 'employee hat' looking for career advancement opportunities, you'll benefit from Thrive!" —Brent D. Bostrom, VP and General Counsel (retd), GROWMARK, Inc.

Although we learn something from every book, most popular management books aren't based on rigorous empirical research. Therefore, while the suggestions made by the author may have worked for some, there is no guarantee that they will work for you.

Professional advice based on rigorously tested theories has a higher likelihood of helping you achieve success. In Thrive! Professor Jim Jawahar asks eight successful individuals to share their career journeys and then explains the theoretical framework underlying the concepts and principles that contributed to their success. Each path shows the way to accomplishing a goal, including:

  • Reducing work stress

  • Ensuring a fair workplace

  • Enhancing workplace diversity

  • Achieving psychological well-being

  • Modifying a boring job into an exciting and meaningful job

  • Securing an excellent performance evaluation

  • Obtaining a significant pay raise or a promotion

  • Advancing in your career field

Jim gives you the knowledge to choose a path that aligns with your aspirations, outlines steps to achieve your goals, and Thrive!
