TEL-AVIV, Israel, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Americans work more than 365 hours off the clock each year. That's the finding a new study by Good Technology which proves Americans truly are married to their jobs.
Julie Sheranosher wants to change that. In her new book, Sheranosher reveals how she went from working 18 hours a day to 4 hours a day, managing to get promoted twice in the process.
In "The Corporate Games: An EX-IDF Captain Reveals – How I worked 5X less hours... and they BEGGED me to stay!," Sheranosher outlines the simple method she followed that transformed her life.
"The Corporate Games" is the first in a series of books Sheranosher plans on maintaining a work-life balance. It's available on Amazon for the Kindle and readers can preview the book for free starting on Saturday, Nov. 10.
Sheranosher's experience as a team leader in the Israeli Defense Force is not unlike many Americans who find their bodies breaking down following years of being overburdened by stressful, demanding jobs.
In Sheranosher's case, a broken back forced her to take drastic measures to alter her work-life balance. By following a simple and unique method to manage her resources and time, empower subordinates and influence superiors by using smart politics, she was able to get home by lunch every day.
"This book is not about bragging, nor is it about theory – I was simply put in a situation where I had no other choice, and these are the actual steps I took," Sheranosher said.
Written in a bold, no-holds-barred manner, Sheranosher draws from her own experiences as a captain in the Israeli military to guide professionals who want to become more efficient at work and make the most of corporate politics.
"This book focuses on my own personal survival in an extreme environment. I started my search for a system to help me outlive my job but as it usually turns out, a greater good was involved. I strongly believe that the universe adapts itself to your expectations. If you expect your boss to be aloof, why should he make the effort and be thoughtful? If you expect your subordinates to be sloppy, even if they can be extremely organized - why should they? You have already labeled them, haven't you?
"We create our environment. It is our responsibility to build our friends, subordinates and even superiors. I had the honor of leading tens of amazing men and women, and I am proud to say that the method I developed brought a great change to their lives," Sheranosher said.
"All my former subordinates have great jobs, amazing salaries, study in the best universities and live happy lives. They all indicate that the change in their lives began when I started implementing this method. This is the new leadership," she said.
Sheranosher's advice has taken root among readers and has garnered rave reviews. Consider these reviewers opinions:
"As a fellow workaholic, the book really inspired me to change the way I manage my time. It is very neatly written, short and leads the reader directly to the point without wasting their time." - Omrin Ariya.
"This book is really easy to read and yet, so packed with insight. Instead of finding an all knowing, all powerful tutor, I met a smart and talented woman who made mistakes, paid dearly for them - and then went ahead to fix them." - Natti Baron.

You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
