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?)
Whether you work in a corporate environment or a major company we all know that to get ahead you need more than luck. I found this book very useful in understanding some key strategies to help get ahead through understanding what strategies to apply when moving from one role up the corporate ladder. The work environment is a political battlefield in many large organisations and if you are not savvy to how to play the game, then this book will teach you some quick tips that you can apply straight away to help you position yourself correctly, win allies, marginalsie enemies and improve your influencing skills.

The book can either be read from cover to cover or as a reference guide and the sections are divided up into several work stages whether you are starting in a new role and need to impress, moving overseas or trying to get noticed for promotion.

The corporate behaviour analysis of the author was very interesting and the book helps you work out how cultures work, what to look out for and how to define a way ahead for yourself. Even if you pick up a few tips, this book is a must for ambitious managers and executives who need some help in planning and delivering their next major career move.
