Everyone reading this could benefit from this book. I know that is a bold statement, but you have a career. Whether you are just getting started, are mid-career, or are later in your professional life, could you be more effective and successful? This book will help you see, as the title suggests, the right stuff and the wrong stuff.
Even the most successful professional has had at least one career-derailing moment. The author of this book had one. After a glowing start to his career, he was blindsided by his weaknesses that were keeping him from moving forward.
Labeled as obstinate, resistant, and insubordinate, he embarked on a career-long journey to figure out why he almost got fired, and help others on the bumpy road to success.
This book features the identification of five career archetypes:
- Captain Fantastic
- The Solo Flier
- Version 1.0
- The One-Trick Pony
- The Whirling Dervish
You may see yourself in one or more of these types. Cast helps you see the strengths and blindsides of each, giving you a practical, proactive, and effective way to move forward in your career development.
This is a very readable book – one that would be a perfect gift for a colleague, new graduate or yourself. It is for anyone who wants to have a brilliant career.
