The father factor is the conscious understanding, awareness, and appreciation of the critical influence that your father had, still has, or could have in your career development and future potential. Noting that the father-son or father-daughter relationship is one of the least understood relationships in adult life, Dr. Poulter helps you become acutely aware of the immeasurable impact (negative or positive) that your father has on your ability to relate to other people. From this recognition you will also learn to move past the career roadblocks that frequently stem from the lingering effects of your father’s influence.
Defining five main styles of fathering, Dr. Poulter devotes a chapter each to:
The Superachiever Father
The Time Bomb Father
The Passive Father
The Absent Father (whether physically or emotionally)
The Compassionate / Mentor Father.
By becoming aware of how your father related to you, particularly in a destructive relationship, you’ll understand how your career relationships in many ways mirror your degree of comfort with your father’s emotional legacy. In this way, career roadblocks—often based on interactions with people on the job—will be more easily transformed into career building blocks that will lead to advancement and success.

Stephan B. Poulter, PhD (Los Angeles, CA), is the author of The Father Factor, The Mother Factor, Your Ex-Factor, and two other books. He has practiced as a clinical psychologist specializing in family relationships for more than twenty-five years. Dr. Poulter lectures widely and appears regularly on radio talk shows and news programs.From Publishers Weekly:
Aimed at both men and women, Poulter's insightful guide looks at the lasting influence of your father's parenting style on your career direction and development as well as professional relationships. Still, clinical psychiatrist Poulter (Father Your Son) insists, "You hold the keys to your future, not your father." Beginning with an analysis of why your father has an impact on what you do and how you do it, Poulter outlines five major father types, including the "Superachiever," "Time Bomb," "Passive," "Absent" and "Compassionate/Mentor." The author provides questionnaires for identifying your father's type and addresses how to counteract his potentially negative impact. Poulter considers telltale signs that you may have adopted your father's management strategies and offers counsel on being more introspective about your own behavior toward people in authority at work and even in your personal life. This book contains helpful advice for any professional who has had a difficult relationship with his or her father and wants to avoid a repetitive legacy. (May)
