It's December and this entire month we are looking back at a remarkable, unbelievable, disruptive 2020 - and extracting the best ideas, insights, and resources to take into 2021.

Last week I shared never-before-seen data from our 2020 Global Reinvention Survey.

(Can you believe that to survive and thrive today, a whopping 60% of people are reinventing their business every 3 years or less?!)

This week I want to look back at another major milestone - the collective effort that resulted in the release of "The Chief Reinvention Officer Handbook: How to Thrive in Chaos":

More than 3,000 people contributed to this book, testing each of the 9 tools in real organizations around the globe, participating in our research, and polishing the featured cases, worksheets, and insights.

Since its release in late October, the Handbook:

1. Made its way into the hands of reinvention trailblazers who are leading reinvention efforts in Germany, Australia, South Africa, Romania, Sweden, Canada, Russia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Slovenia, Israel, I am sure others, and of course the US

2. Got its first award and its first praise from the independent book critics

3. Sold out two times on all platforms, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop, Target, and Walmart (but if you are still looking for a perfect holiday gift, we have refilled the stocks!)

4. Got our best tools - such as the Business Model Reinvention Cards which come as a perforated ready-to-use bonus to the book - into the hands of amazing pioneers:

5. Showed the world that a small independent publishing effort can still deliver amazing books even if nobody from the big publishing giants believe in it!


So, if you have not had a chance to benefit from the Chief Reinvention Officer Handbook yet  - perhaps, you do not yet think of yourself as a Chief Reinvention Officer of your life - now is the time to change that. 

Here are a few resources to start:

1. If you have not yet downloaded our free 85-page preview of the Handbook, complete with 2 tools and one full case, you can get it here (no form to complete, direct link);

2. If you prefer to listen, rather than read, you can get a short intro to the key ideas in the "Thrive in chaos with reinvention guru Dr. Nadya Zhexembayeva" episode of the Leadership Lab podcast hosted by the wonderful Dr. Patrick Leddin;

3. If you are looking for a personal reinvention or know somebody who lost their job and is struggling, I shared some insights and resources, including the crowd-favorite "Fear to Action" exercise in this The Wall Street Journal article.


I am honored to be part of the community that made this book possible and pulled it together in a matter of 3 months.

What an impact.

What a gift you are to the world.

What a way to turn 2020 crisis into something that matters and makes a difference.

And we have more year-in-review celebrations to come ;)



Dr. Nadya Zhexembayeva helps companies such as Coca-Cola, Kohler, and IBM turn change and disruption into an opportunity.
