Take control of your career - The essential guide
Are you looking for a new job, thinking about changing direction, or just not quite sure of what to do next in your career?
#1 Amazon Australia (Careers) bestseller, Navigating Career Crossroads, is the essential guide to taking control of your career. With continued redundancies across almost every industry sector and the angst experienced by those impacted, regardless of where you are in the world, there's a huge need for practical careers guidance and transition support.
Over the past 14 years I've coached over 1,000 clients in Asia and Australia through their career transitions and for many years I've dreamed of reaching even more people and guiding them, step by step, through their personal transition process towards success. I asked myself how I can reach all those people.
Then I found the way. I took over a year writing this book filled with practical strategies for career success - from rebuilding your confidence if you're worn out by the emotional roller coaster of a redundancy or extreme challenges in the workplace, to diagnostic assessments to find out what makes you tick. This book takes you through the step-by-step process to secure your dream role.
