Building a successful career starts with you.
It's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day demands of your current job and lose sight of the big picture, but with a typical career spanning fifty years or more, you do so at your own peril. It's up to you to chart your own course to professional success.
We've combed through hundreds of articles in the Harvard Business Review archive and selected the ten most important ones to help you develop yourself, make the right career moves, navigate inevitable detours and disruptions, and turn your professional dreams into reality.
This book will inspire you to: identify and leverage your strengths; cultivate the curiosity, skills, and knowledge you need to maintain your professional relevance far into the future; navigate messy job transitions gracefully; build and sustain a network that supports and encourages your growth; restore meaning and passion to your work; bounce back from career setbacks big and small; and reinvent yourself, even in tough times.
