Top Customer Reviews
If managing your career, rather than just having a career is what you want this book is for you. There are some great questions to work through on your own; as an Executive Coach, I find there are some really useful ‘tools’ to help clients wanting to manage their careers, without necessarily moving to another organisation.
For those ready to find and climb further rungs on their ladder this is a great book to discover new ways of climbing it. For the Coach there are some useful tools, particularly if you turn some of the good advice into good questions.
What I also like about this book is that should give people the tools to deal with what is probably the second most emotional think in their life in a rational way. This means they are more likely to be successful by doing something positive, rather than simply worrying about things in a possibly self-destructive way.
Overall, I think this is a great self-help book – I wish it had been written earlier in my career, when I might have been in a better position to take some of its wisdom to heart.
The advice for your first few days in the job was invaluable to me - it helps you make a good impression in these vital days.
