Failure...we've all been there. In business and in life. Whether you've done it to yourself or have been negatively impacted by external situations, this book is a guide to building resilience and turning obstacles into opportunities.

Failure can often be the first step forward. The Rebuilders is here to help us accept setbacks for what they are and explores not just how to get back up and get through to the other side, but also recognize the creative potential found in the rubble of disappointment. This book is your companion to facing challenges at work and in life with pragmatism and a healthy dose of inspiration.

With exclusive interviews with business leaders from organizations like Google, the NHS and The World Economic Forum, as well as personal stories of setbacks from people like England Rugby Coach Sir Clive Woodward, human rights activist Mandy Sanghera and Unilever's Chief brand Officer Aline Santos, The Rebuilders will show you how to overcome setbacks and put learnings to good use in your professional and personal journey. Authors Sara Tate and Anna Vogt have experienced the challenge of rebuilding in spades. The force and duo behind the recent turnaround of renowned creative agency TBWA London, and co-hosts of the podcast The Rebuilders, they bring personal stories of growth to show you how to rebuild yourself and overcome whatever life and work throw at you next.
