Summary

Summary

Unlike most career books, which show how to move up the career ladder by moving on to another company, this practical guide reveals how to get the most out of the job you now have and how to get ahead by increasing your value to your co-workers, your boss and your company. It brings into focus why changing companies is usually not the right solution, considering whether and when the effort required to make a move measures up to the potentially higher rewards of staying where you are, and pointing to situations in which the real problem is how you relate to your company. Using a simple personal management system based on goal development, it stresses and reinforces personal responsibility as the foundation of career advancement. With this idea as a starting point, it goes on to explain the inner workings and dynamics shared by most companies, and how to use this understanding to your advantage. With real-life examples and practical advice, readers will learn how to work with their bosses to develop their careers, increase their earnings, and achieve success in their professions.
