NEW RELEASE: DEVELOP: 7 Practical Tools to Take Charge of Your Career
A book I narrated was released last week! This time a business oriented book, but one that I think appeals to almost everyone. Why? Because it's about developing your career.
Why are some people able to climb the corporate ladder easily while others get stuck? How can you set yourself on a rewarding career path and avoid job frustration?
In Develop: 7 Practical Tools to Take Charge of Your Career, Ted Fleming, head of talent development for CVS Health, shares simple, powerful advice for finding the right job or growing in an existing role. Fleming offers actionable tools and step-by-step techniques that anyone can apply to crystallize and achieve their career goals.
Based on his more than two decades' experience managing, advising, and researching career growth, he offers an insider's view for navigating organizations where the path to advancement is complex and success strategies are often kept secret.
Fleming also offers straightforward advice for navigating discrimination, gender biases, and other barriers to success. Designed as a practical reference to return to again and again, Develop will equip you to take charge of your professional life and find your way to a happier, more meaningful career.
Sounds like an interesting and useful book huh? It is! The chapter on Networking alone is worth listening too (or reading). It's well written, easy to read and insightful. He gives a lot of practical advise for developing your career, or changing your career, and his steps are concrete and not difficult (though they will take time and effort).
Ted has a website dedicated to this book, and there are blog posts and videos you can peruse that give introductions to his 7 steps.
