How Do We Leverage Continuous Uncertainty To Thrive In this Unprecedented New World?
NOW AVAILABLE IN PRINT & AUDIOBOOK FORMAT!
Are You Thriving
or Merely Surviving?
There’s no question that the last two years have been tremendously tough on all of us. We’ve had to weather wave after wave of the impacts of COVID-19 — and we’re still facing many of its challenges in direct and indirect ways.
Often, resilience is associated with “rolling with the punches” and “bouncing back” after a challenge or through change. But what if, rather than simply getting back to baseline you could aim higher and actually thrive in the midst of uncertainty?
We all know that change is necessary, and yet few of us welcome it. Becoming change proof means coming to terms with the discomfort of change so we can truly embrace the future.
Above all else, to become change proof we must be resilient.
Change Proof, the new book by resilience expert Adam Markel, teaches you that this kind of resilience―thriving versus surviving―is a skill you can cultivate, both personally and professionally. Learn to move beyond managing change to actively embracing it—and actually using times of uncertainty, crisis, and chaos to create opportunities and stimulate individual and team growth.
Change Proof explores the dynamics of change and provides a model of how to create the mindset that embraces it fully. Using case studies, current research, and his years of experience as an expert in the integration of resilience and organizational development, Markel uses real-life scenarios to illuminate the lessons in engaging chapters that include:
- The Myth of Balance
- The Resilience Bank Account
- Recovery vs. Burnout
- Even Michael Jordan Paused
- Get Out of Your Head
- A Little Failure Goes a Long Way
- Calm Is Contagious
- What Change-Proof Culture Can Do for You
You’ll learn how to choose change before it chooses you, what it takes (and what it means) to become truly change proof, and how to leverage your relationship to change. You’ll also find practical strategies in the change proof model: pause, ask, choose. With a combination of mindset recalibration and specific, hands-on ways to make it work, Change Proof will help you take the art and science of resilience to the next level—and look forward to the future and all the changes it will bring with full confidence.

There aren’t many success stories that don’t involve healthy resilience.
Often the unsung hero, resilience is not a soft skill. It directly affects your bottom line, both personally and professionally. Cultivating your resilience is a skill in business and life that is truly game-changing.
The pandemic has left people feeling afraid, uncertain, stuck, and even paralyzed from taking the action they need to take. This upheaval also presents opportunities for self-reflection, self-care, and attention to relationships — as well as new ways of doing business, generating revenue, and building stronger teams. To do this, we need to embrace the Change Proof model.
Change Proof teaches a three-part model that you can learn to become “change proof” and turn uncertainty and chaos to your own clear advantage, every time.

Adam Markel is the #1 Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of Pivot: The Art & Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life. He is the co-founder and CEO of More Love Media, a sought-after keynote and TEDx speaker, workshop facilitator for Fortune 500 companies, a resilience researcher and expert, a global business leader and mentor, member of The Transformational Leadership Council and Association of Transformational Leaders.
After burning out from building a multi-million dollar law firm, Adam pivoted his career to become CEO of one of the largest business and personal development training companies in the world, overseeing more than $100 million in sales. He wrote about this experience and shared how others could do the same in his bestselling book Pivot. After several years running the company, things weren’t working with his business partners who didn’t see eye-to-eye with him on the direction of the company. He was replaced as CEO.
Just like that, it was over. Again.
Adam knew he needed to write another book. One that would deal not with planned, predictable, and infrequent change, but one that would help people build resilience in the face of rapid, near-constant change.
In Change Proof, Adam shows you how to actually embrace change―to find the creative opportunity in uncertainty, as opposed to simply riding it out or reacting to it. Using case studies, current research, and real-life anecdotes from his work as an executive mentor, Markel clearly lays out the fundamentals of the required mind shift―how to change your relationship with change. He then describes three concrete actions you can take in order to become “change proof”―able to turn uncertainty and chaos to your own clear advantage, every time.
