For you to manage your career and for the Executive Coach, 23 Dec. 2003
John Lees has followed up his excellent “How To Get A Job You’ll Love” a search for the ideal with this potentially more materialistic title. With its research base he builds on the answers to questions he posed to a variety of high performers. This leads to a rich mixture of advice lists and self-analysis tools. These move the reader on to indicating action he or she can take to get that promotion. John helps address the question,” Promotion for what?” in his chapter, “What do you mean by success?”
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.
