Your Next Move
The Leader’s Guide to Navigating Major Career Transitions (HBSP 2009)
You’ve got big ideas and ambitions in your career, and you’ve done well … so far. But are you ready for your next move? Because your path to the top will be built step-by-step through a series of major career moves. And each time you make a move you have the opportunity to shine or to stumble. Shine and you will be positioned for still greater things. Stumble and you may never recover.
In Your Next Move, Michael Watkins shows how you can survive and thrive in all the major transitions you will face during your career, including promotion, on-boarding into a new organization, and making an international move. With real-life examples and case studies, he shows the defining hurdles associated with each type of transition.
He then provides the insights, strategies, and tools—including relationship reengineering, business systems analysis, and “organizational immunology”—you’ll need to accelerate through these crucial turning points and continue moving up in your career.
The necessary complement to the author’s bestselling guide The First 90 Days, Your Next Move offers the keen observations, tried-and-true management wisdom, and practical good sense Watkins is renowned for. It’s a vital resource for any manager or executive seeking to maintain career momentum.
