Product description



“With The Adversity Advantage, Claudia Lantos has written a very generous book that shares profound and helpful insights from her (clearly very impactful) coaching practice. There are enough simple and yet powerful tips, tricks and life ‘hacks’ in this book to make a first reading very worthwhile for anyone trying to navigate the modern workplace, and some bigger ideas and useful tools that warrant a second reading.”

Mandy Geddes, General Manager, Education, IECL by GrowthOps

“Claudia’s book really resonated with me as it took me back to the many adversities I faced in my own life. In The Adversity Advantage, Claudia addresses some of the most compelling realities and needs of our times. Like the alchemist that turns lead into gold, Claudia’s Scenario Thinking Framework™ offers a process to turn adversity into adaptability and resilience. This book is an essential read for coaches, managers and leaders.”

Sebastian Salicru, Business Psychologist, Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and Author of Leadership Results

“Claudia’s narrative is accessible and practical. Her story is peppered with excellent examples throughout enabling the reader to relate and make sense of her messages. The distinction between High Performer and High Achiever is thought provoking and I look forward to exploring one of Claudia’s key messages more for myself, ‘only accept the status quo that is right for you.’”

Jane Porter, Head of Coaching and Education People & Leadership, GrowthOps and IECL by GrowthOps

“I am delighted that Claudia has decided to share her insight and experience with all people who wish to develop themselves, by writing this book. Claudia’s unique ability to give intense focus on goals she sets for herself and get inspiration from long term targets is truly inspirational. In her book she combines personal encounters with adversity with the broader scope of challenges managers encounter in personal and professional life. A smooth read, with valuable take-aways.”

Karin Koks - van der Sluijs, Non-executive and supervisory board member global real-estate

“Being in Executive Search myself I especially liked the part where high achievers are coached to become high performers. I also acknowledge that coaching is no longer a method to fix somebody’s shortcomings, but nowadays seen as a reward, using Executive Coaching to do even better.”

Ludo Houben, Owner Houben Executive Search
