I’d like to take the New Year as an opportunity to reintroduce myself. After ten-plus years as a resume writer and career consultant, I take it as my mission to help upper management and C level job seekers secure fulfilling jobs and to help those looking to advance their careers to leverage their influence. If you are looking to take the next step in your career I’d love to help.
Now I’d like to share 2 great books that came out in 2015 you should definitely consider adding to your reading list for 2016.
Number 1- Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s latest book, Team of Teams.
From Amazon: In this powerful book, McChrystal and his colleagues show how the challenges they faced in Iraq can be relevant to countless businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations. The world is changing faster than ever, and the smartest response for those in charge is to give small groups the freedom to experiment while driving everyone to share what they learn across the entire organization. As the authors argue through compelling examples, the team of teams strategy has worked everywhere from hospital emergency rooms to NASA. It has the potential to transform organizations large and small.
From Amazon: Education plus experience once guaranteed a successful career, but no more. Today, success depends on your ability to adapt. You must be agile, willing to adjust your professional expectations, and able to respond quickly to opportunities and threats. Jones provides practical ways to handle vexing workplace challenges. It’s not enough to know how to manage common work-life challenges; you must also deal with the uncommon ones. Think Like an Entrepreneur, Act Like a CEO gives you proven, easy, go-to techniques for handling even the biggest career surprises, one step at a time.
