Your Next Move
My friend and former HBS colleague Michael Watkins has a new book out titled Your Next Move. In this follow-up to his best-seller, The First 90 Days, Michael has identified eight typical career moves that managers make in their careers. He explores the challenges one faces with each type of move, and then offers sound, practical advice for how to navigate the pitfalls a manager is likely to encounter during that transition. Michael grounds his work in extensive field research, as well as his consulting work with thousands of managers around the globe. I think every manager ready to navigate a career transition will find this book insightful and useful.
