Have you been working for years but unhappy in the career you’re in? Are you stuck without a job and can’t seem to get your foot in the door? Are you stuck in a rut while everyone around you seems to get promoted? I so recommend this book! It’s an easy read but gives you lots to think about. Map out your strengths and play to them rather than trying to beef up your weaknesses.
Robin Ryan’s groundbreaking new book is designed to help readers take advantage of a paradigm shift in the workplace. Instead of hiring or promoting generally qualified people and improving their weaknesses, companies are now looking for workers who have the strengths that match particular jobs. Ryan shows readers how to identify those strengths and use that knowledge to advance their careers and better promote themselves to prospective employers. She shows how to establish an appealing career identity using self- branding tools like résumés, Mind Maps, and on-the-job success stories, and outlines fresh approaches to networking with colleagues and negotiating with bosses. Savvy and entertaining, Soaring on Your Strengths
will be the
job and promotion seekers guide for the twenty-first century. –This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
