Paperback and eBook | Expected date of publication: October 2017
Most professionals face a number of critical crossroads in their careers, sometimes unpredictable, sometimes more expected, but for which they were often not truly prepared.
This book discusses many specific forms of such career transitions – from leaving a corporation to joining a non-profit, evolving from athlete to executive, or going back to a former employer.
For each transition, through the stories of over 50 leaders, who were interviewed all over the world, across cultures, sectors and backgrounds, the authors describe the circumstances or motivations that provoke the change, the challenges it creates, how the individual is surviving the transition, and what effective leaders do to navigate and grow from the transition.
A simple, practical framework – the Transition Navigator – is provided to help transitioning leaders make the most of any of these uncharted transitions. To thrive, they need to consciously follow a four-step process of Exploring, Experimenting, Engaging and Exploiting. Drawing from examples of a wide range of companies, Disrupt Your Career also provides practical recommendations to help organizations better acquire, develop and retain talent with disruptive careers.
With both compelling stories and rigorous research, Disrupt Your Career serves as a call for exploiting novel ways to approach careers and presents practical tools and techniques to help both individuals and their organizations better prepare, manage, and make the most of these transitions – ultimately leading to more fulfilling careers.
