Title: Bring Your Superpowers to Work: Your Guide
to More Clarity, Confidence, and Control
Author: Darcy Eikenberg
Stars: ***

Author, Darcy Eikenberg, a workplace coach, explains how to get more out
of life and work. She does this by first helping readers identify their unique
abilities (aka superpowers) and then showing how they can bring those
superpowers to the job. Finally, she provides tips for how they can sustain
their mojo and achieve long term success.  

It’s a quick read that has quite a few useful tips. One standout for this
reviewer is Darcy’s advice to share your superpowers with others by
making small talk big talk. She advises, the next time someone asks you
how you are doing, don’t just say, “Fine.” Say something like, “Things are
going well. We just made our profit numbers last quarter, and I just
finished up the xyz project that contributed to our success.” In other words,
use the small talk opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge, show your
interest, or to tell someone about a recent success. Beats “fine” any day!

If you’re not pleased with your current job, or if you feel like you are in a bit
of a rut, this book can help you find a way out. Make sure to take
advantages of the helpful tools referenced on Darcy’s website and
included in the appendix.
