This book is so needed in today's fluid work environment. Recent graduates may have the skills to navigate academia, but getting into the workforce is a new arena which takes a different set of skills. Older workers, those over 50 years old, regularly get pink slips and need to learn how to start all over. This step-by-step guide outlines almost every situation a new employee may experience.
The logic in the book helps to identify satisfying career choices and eliminate biases that may hinder decisions. It includes advice on soft skills, including self-awareness and the importance of self-expression. It even covers how goals may change throughout one’s career and how necessary it is to evaluate this change when making choices.
The authors discuss the importance of uncomfortable feelings, a topic that is not often addressed in a business guidebook. They discuss the importance of dealing with the inevitability of mistakes. It’s often said emotional intelligence is more important than IQ; this book will help readers to develop the skills they will need to have a successful career and a meaningful life.
The 12 Skills will help employees at the beginning of their career, when they are in a career change, or when they are starting a new job.
