Stop Press... having been featured in articles and interviews around the globe and received rave reviews, due to public demand, Winning Through Career Change has been revised for a new paperback edition. The original Kindle book has also been updated, so you now have choice!
Are You At a Career Crossroads?
Winning Through Career Change has been described as "the definitive career change book". It is inspired by encouragement and positive feedback received from many readers, clients and the publisher of my first book ‘Winning Through Redundancy’. In light of many people's experiences and success, they felt there needed to be another book focused on broadening the 'Winning Through' concept beyond redundancy. Feedback was that the principles and 6 Step process had proven to directly benefit anyone looking to make a winning career change and to move into more fulfilling and rewarding work. Hence Winning Through Career Change was born and it has received international acclaim.
“Can you imagine how would it feel to wake up each Monday morning in the knowledge that you have an exciting and enjoyable week ahead, doing work you love? Wouldn’t that be just great?”
Most People are Unfulfilled in Their Jobs
The sobering statistics of research consistently shows that 1 in 2 people feel they are in the ‘wrong job’ and 2 out of 3 are unfulfilled in their jobs. It therefore follows that millions of people are unhappy and in the ‘wrong job’ or career. We all know people like this, don’t we? They are forever bemoaning their lot, but never do anything about it or just accept that this is the way is has to be…….after all, you don’t have to enjoy your job do you? Or do you?!
Maybe You Recognise These Feelings?
The reality is that only a small percentage of people ever take a ‘leap of faith’ and muster the courage, determination and conviction to take positive action to pursue a career change. You might think this is just a special or elite group of individuals, but the reality is there is nothing stopping you from joining them…. and I can show you how.
Change your thinking and you will change your life!
Backed with case study evidence, I will show you how you can change your thinking so you can learn that you do have CHOICE and that you can take control of your career and life - not just now, but for the rest of your working life. Just think how good that would be.
I will be sharing aspects of my personal career change journey, together with many of my learning points….both lows and highs! The interesting and inspiring case studies have been drawn from a diverse range of clients from all backgrounds and age groups. Despite their circumstances, just like you they all had the innate ability to win through career change to navigate their way to a brighter future and create a new and exciting career, having benefited from my guidance and direction.
Practical Career and Life Management
A number of years ago I established that there is a definite process to achieve a successful career change.
Each successive Chapter of Winning Through Career Change directly corresponds to each respective Step of my unique and highly successful Career Navigation Cycle process. The book contains a wide range of practical, motivational exercises and tools as part of the process of helping you to achieve a successful outcome. My book aims to inspire you to get started on your voyage of self-discovery and ultimately ‘take the leap of faith’ to find a new fulfilling career or type of work that is just right for you.
To help you cross the finishing line and win through, I will be providing some ‘Winning Steers’ and ‘Pit Stops’. These are periodic markers carefully placed throughout the book that have been designed to encourage you to take time out and momentarily stop to absorb what you have just read; to ‘refuel’ by considering the content and advice before getting back into gear and moving on. ‘Pit Stops’ are a necessary part of the strategy to win through.
Isn’t it reassuring to know that you, like me and the many case studies featured, will also come to ‘love Mondays’, enjoy the work you do and achieve a fulfilling life?
So, if you are: …..
- Stuck in a rut, feeling unfulfilled
- Unsure where your career is heading and feel ‘lost’
- Not achieving or unaware of your true potential or purpose
- Looking at making a career change but don’t know where to start
- Considering starting your own business, but are hesitant and unsure what to do or how to begin
- Returning to work after a career break and seeking a new career and life path
….then you will realise that by now…. ‘Winning Through Career Change’ was written for you!
There are plenty of books about how to get another job but few that show you how to change career to end up doing work you love and lead a fulfilling life. Winning Through Career Change – Six steps to navigate your way to a brighter future, is now the definitive career change book, the second in a series of ‘Winning Through’ books and the follow-up to my internationally acclaimed ‘Winning Through Redundancy’.
“Steve's book is 'The Knowledge' of how to turn your career change into a challenging yet positive and uplifting life-changing experience. A must have guide for anyone embarking on a new voyage of career discovery!” Gail Gibson
