Where Do I Go From Here?

by Gilda Bonanno LLC http://www.gildabonanno.com/

Where to Go From Here - Reinventing Your Career... Your Business... Your Working Life, by my colleague and friend, Douglas Campbell III (aka "The Success Coach").

Doug has written a concise, practical book that will help you figure out what's important to you and what steps you can take to continue to grow professionally. The book is about taking action on that inner impulse - "there's something important I should be paying attention to, something that's just not working for me in my professional life."

What I like about it are the self-assessments and practical exercises that help you identify important things like your work values, your work persona, your risk profile and your personal history. He also weaves in relevant stories from his years of experience as an executive coach with top performers and top companies.

And I love his description of the Honest Broker role, someone who will help you set action steps and hold you accountable (could be a professional coach, but also could be a trusted mentor or former colleague).

This book will help you reflect and and then do something to reinvent yourself, your company and your working life.

I like the book so much that I just bought 10 copies to share with clients and colleagues! You can read more about it on Doug's website http://www.thesuccesscoach.com/ or buy it on Amazon.
