9780077109677: Take Control of Your Career

Are you wondering why everyone else appears to have a career plan? Is it true that only the most aggressive and power hungry people get what they want?

How to Take Control of your Career, adapted from John Lees earlier book, How to Get the Perfect Promotion, is a practical guide to developing the best career strategy for you.

Drawing on the experience of high performers, it shows you how to overcome mental and physical barriers, make the best visible impact, and negotiate your job content, career advancement and pay.

It will help you to get inside the mind of your employer; find out what makes them tick, and how you can use this information to your advantage. The book also examines how to raise and maintain a good profile as well as how to understand and manage others people’s perceptions of you.
