Writer Kevin Carroll has written a series of books that approach work in a unique way.
His “Red Rubber Ball” series have addressed professional development and workplace issues over the span of all three books.
The first two books, Rules of the Red Rubber Ball and What’s Your Red Rubber Ball? discussed Carroll’s own professional path, as well as ways to identify your own path.
His new book, The Red Rubber Ball at Work, profiles a number of people, from tech gurus and business experts to actors like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and writers like Paulo Coehlo and captures their ideas about play and imagination, and how those translate into personal and professional innovation.
The book outlines 5 major areas of focus in the workplace – innovation, results, teamwork, leadership and curiosity.
In addition to the testimonials of the people profiled, Carroll’s book also features action plans where the reader can implement these ideas in their own lives.
