Works Well with Others is McCammon’s honest, funny, and entertaining journey from impostor to authority, a story that begins with periods of debilitating workplace anxiety but leads to rich insights and practical advice from a guy who “made it” but who still remembers what it’s like to feel entirely ill-equipped for professional success. And for life in general, if we’re being completely honest. McCammon points out the workplace for what it is: an often absurd landscape of ego and fear guided by social rules that no one ever talks about.

What is a good quote from Works Well With Others?

Top Quote: “The people who act as if they have it all figured out have little to offer me because I have nothing to offer them. There’s no growth. There’s no learning. We think of self-doubt as a hindrance, as a kind of deficiency. But it doesn’t have to be a deficiency. When you have doubt, you have more. You have the problem plus doubt. You have more fuel, more reasons to work hard, more to prove.” - Works Well With Others Quotes, Ross McCammon
