Under the Social Influence

Author: Chuck Wilson, NSCA Executive Director

Each part of “Under the Social Influence” captures specific (positive and negative) influences that can impact the stages of a successful life and career by using unique, and sometimes humorous, examples. The book appeals to Gen Y workers seeking their first “real” job, and employers who want to figure out why their Millennial workers act the way they do. The stories help everyone put life into perspective and focus on what’s really important. This is a cut-to-the-chase, no-nonsense, real-world, tough-love playbook for those struggling to get ahead (and those under the influence of negative social situations).
