Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most people suffer from some sort of job dissatisfaction. But figuring out whether they should change or their jobs should change isnt easy. From a leading executive coach comes The Authentic Career, perhaps the first book to provide readers with a formal sequence that combines professional, psychological, and spiritual resources to achieve career success and fulfillment. The four-stage process — clearly outlined and filled with exercises, examples, and inspirational quotes — has proven successful for the authors clients of all levels, from Fortune 500 CEOs to professional women returning to the workforce after having children. Craddock combines her business background as a Lipper Award–winning fund manager with her training as a social worker and years of experience as an executive coach to outline a therapeutic process that clearly separates what we want and need in order to find fulfillment from the external demands and expectations that family, society, and the workplace impose on us. Identifying our authentic career goals and strategies requires that we carefully examine our inner lives, Craddock believes, separating them from the daily demands and frustrations of our work lives.

Synopsis:

Many people experience some degree of job dissatisfaction. But figuring out whether they should change themselves — or change jobs — isnt easy. Drawing on her business background, her training as a social worker, and her years of experience as an executive coach, Maggie Craddock outlines a therapeutic process that carefully separates what the reader wants and needs from the often-frustrating demands of family and work. The author believes that identifying authentic career goals and strategies requires a careful examination of ones inner life. She clearly outlines the four-stage process — beginning with the Awareness Stage and ending with the Integration Stage — and includes exercises, examples, and inspirational quotes. Craddock gently guides the reader through the process, illustrating each stage with real-life examples, including stories from Fortune 500 CEOs and professional women returning to the workforce after having children. Ultimately a very hopeful book, The Authentic Career is a welcome companion on anyone's career path.
