The Father Factor: How Your Father's Legacy Impacts Your Career

Stephan B. Poulter, Author . Prometheus $18 (239p) ISBN 978-1-59102-410-1

Aimed at both men and women, Poulter's insightful guide looks at the lasting influence of your father's parenting style on your career direction and development as well as professional relationships. Still, clinical psychiatrist Poulter (Father Your Son ) insists, "You hold the keys to your future, not your father." Beginning with an analysis of why your father has an impact on what you do and how you do it, Poulter outlines five major father types, including the "Superachiever," "Time Bomb," "Passive," "Absent" and "Compassionate/Mentor." The author provides questionnaires for identifying your father's type and addresses how to counteract his potentially negative impact. Poulter considers telltale signs that you may have adopted your father's management strategies and offers counsel on being more introspective about your own behavior toward people in authority at work and even in your personal life. This book contains helpful advice for any professional who has had a difficult relationship with his or her father and wants to avoid a repetitive legacy. (May)
