Advice from a wise Counsel on career management,
This review is from: The Truth About Managing Your Career: ...and Nothing But the Truth (Hardcover)What is unusual about The Truth about Managing Your Career...And Nothing but the Truth is that readers at different levels in their careers will find this book useful. Someone graduating from school or someone aiming at the executive suite will benefit from reading it.
The underlying messages in the book are profound yet simple ways to develop the most effective mindset, behaviors and approaches to use in the workplace. The 60 chapters are truths which help you excel in your current job as well as pave the way to the next level in your career. One of the most practical aspects of this book is the way it unveils the causes and reasons for mistakes you have made without being aware of them until later when you are puzzled. I found this book and its examples very enlightening.
