4.0 out of 5 stars Advice on how integrate into a new position, 18 July 2010
By 
This review is from: Your Next Move: The Leader's Guide to Navigating Major Career Transitions (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a student reading this, I thought the ideas and concepts would probably go over my head. Instead what I found was a book that took a common approach into the subject matter. Despite what the title says, "Major Career Transitions" can pretty much be titled "Career Transition".

Moving your whole family to a new country is of course a big transition both personally and profesionally, but the advice on how to integrate oneself into a new business and adapt to local customs can be applied to any business as each will have their own sets of customs.

I found the author gave helpful advice and through examples *which I am not sure are all entirely true* highlights how a problem was discovered by colleagues and solved. There is an element of psychology working, as the author often encourages the reader to change attitudes and behaviour of colleagues. How one is perceived is also strongly brought up several times in the book.

The author succeeds at making the reader feel enabled to achieve their career transition and without hand holding highlights the skills necessary to succeed at the higher level of a firm. How to navigate the tricky alliances formed between departments to joining a new firm and not immediately be taken for a ride.
