“How To Have An Outstanding Career provides a clear and comprehensive blueprint for success, based on career resilience and is aimed directly at professionals between the ages of 21 to 32.”
How To Have An Outstanding Career by Susan Scott redefines what a career is in the context of millennials and post-millennials. This unique new perspective encourages the reader to consider their own career as a climbing frame rather than the traditional ladder. Susan’s work tackles the concept of maintaining a healthy balanced lifestyle whilst developing an outstanding career – tricky but not impossible in today’s crazy world of work. The author calls this ‘career resilience’ and it encapsulates many aspects of developing an outstanding career including the mental, physical, emotional and social elements. This is a ‘how to’ book filled with practical exercises that allow the reader to fully explore their career in the here and now, along with future potential, and to develop a realistic action plan. The focus is not simply on what you should do, but how you go about doing it. How To Have An Outstanding Career will help current high achievers, as well as those who feel they have so much more to offer (but perhaps it isn’t quite happening) to reach their career goals, but not at the expense of their life and wellbeing.
Susan Scott’s book provides tips and techniques to realise your potential and take charge of your career, to raise your game and build your reputation whilst growing your capacity to cope with everything life throws at you.
This is based on the five keys contained within the book:
- Your career is your responsibility
- You can’t have it all now
- You need to know where you are going, otherwise you won’t get there
- The road to success is paved with challenges
- You need to ensure that your career is not at the expense of having a life
“An outstanding career is one that keeps you energised and motivated, using your strengths to the full, constantly developing and growing without crashing and burning out.” – Susan Scott
