Welcome to a new concept: the personal career/life planner. From motivating yourself to getting where you want to be, this book will help you work smarter, get focused and move forward. Most people plan and take charge of their finances but few do the same with their career and life. They tend to drift along from job to job or stay in the same place without thinking through what really matters. Looking after your own personal development can help you work out if you are in the place you want to be or if you want to change direction. And before you start you need to assess the situation. Taking charge of your own development also means getting help. You can still get your employer to support you - emotionally and financially. But you have to know how to get them onside and persuade them that what you want is best for them too. There's also help available outside your work that you can use to your advantage. Plan your strategy and push the "go" button.
