    Description

    **A 2019 OWL AWARD SHORTLIST WINNER IN THE HEALTH & WELLNESS CATEGORY**

    From two eminent clinical psychologists, how to access your personal agency and adapt to living the life you choose.

    Agency is the ability to act as an effective agent for oneself―thinking, reflecting, and making creative choices, and acting in ways that direct us toward the lives we want. It is what humans use to feel in command of their lives. For decades, agency has been a central concern of psychologists, sociologists, and philosophers seeking to help generations of people live in greater accord with their interests, values, and inner motivations.

    Renowned clinical psychologists Paul Napper and Anthony Rao offer seven principles for using mind and body to help you locate and develop your own agency. Based on years of research and real-world application, and stories of both high and low performers, their methods equip you to succeed in a world requiring constant adaptation.

    The United States has been described as the most anxious nation on earth by the World Health Organization. We struggle to keep clear minds and to think for ourselves, limiting our ability to make optimal decisions in our lives. Nonstop technology and an increasing focus on metrics and performance are part of everyday, and all of these things leave us feeling, in a word, overwhelmed. The Power of Agency gives you the skills and insights to do less and reflect more before making life choices―and plot the steps to create a life on your own terms.
