Make sure you don’t lose the advantage of living through this once-in-a-century trauma.
Before this moment of opportunity fades, find out:
• how post-traumatic growth can replace PSTD
• how contributory justice can be more powerful than social justice
• why now is the time to lead by example and bring others with you
You are more capable than you were in March 2020 (our research proves it).
In Bounce Back Higher, Jim Lord draws on his five decades of work with leaders from the Americas to Africa and Australia and places in between, as well as the latest findings in human and organizational behavior, to show how and why now is the best time to choose to truly make a difference.
Take a breath and recharge for 45 minutes with this profound little book.
At a time when so many people feel powerless, this book can be your tool to encourage those around you to take stock of what they have gained as they made it through these challenging times. The good news is that they have more personal power than they knew was there.
Only then can the question be answered:
Can a pandemic and all of the upheaval be the best time to change our world for the better?
Rethinking our capabilities and reframing our identities are at the root of how we will handle what comes next — more uncertainty that we know we will have to manage in these historic times.
That’s why now is the best time to reflect on how we can bounce back higher, rather than trying to return to what we had before.
Consider this an invitation to pause to see just how far you have come.
Take a walk. Have a talk. Read this book and see where it will take you.
Then inspire yourself and others to make your greatest contribution yet.

About Jim Lord
Jim Lord is a global thought leader and the author of the classic book for board members, The Raising of Money, a foundational text in philanthropy and the bestselling book on the topic, having reached 250,000 readers and helped institutions and causes raise billions of dollars.
All his endeavors began with a question he first naïvely asked 50 years ago, “Why do people ‘give away’ their money?” Answering that question has turned into a life’s work that has taken him from consulting with small town YWCAs to the Vatican and White House, and it has brought civic leaders, university presidents and professionals from 50 countries to his Philanthropic Quest Strategic Retreat™.
He is also the author of What Kind of World Do You Want?, written after 9/11. Bounce Back Higher serves as a prequel and new introduction to that book.
