Book Review: Coach Yourself to a New Career

This month, in honor of Women’s History Month, I led several workshops focused on career development and enhancement.  As I do with most of my workshops, I provided the attendees with a copy of a book for a takeaway.  This month, I shared the book “Coach Yourself to a New Career.”  Please note that I have no financial interest in this book and have no personal relationship with the author.

The book provides great advice and helpful examples on rejuvenating your professional career.  The book features a seven-step approach to career reinvention and practical advice for a smooth transition.  Throughout the book, the reader is provided with examples and stories that will inspire and motivate. 

There are lots of worksheets and exercises to keep the reader engaged and assist with identifying  your needs and strengths.   The author, Talane Miedaner, also includes exercises on identifying your values.  I am a believer that you need to understand your values before you can move forward in your life, personal or professional.  It is however, surprising how many people don’t know their values!  Additinal information about the author can be found at www.lifecoach.com

I encourage you to spend some time with this book and discover how you can upgrade your career.  It’s an engaging and useful read.
