Publisher Comments:

Robin Ryan’s groundbreaking new book is designed to help readers take advantage of a paradigm shift in the workplace. Instead of hiring or promoting generally qualified people and improving their weaknesses, companies are now looking for workers who have the strengths that match particular jobs. Ryan shows readers how to identify those strengths and use that knowledge to advance their careers and better promote themselves to prospective employers. She shows how to establish an appealing career identity using self-branding tools like résumés, Mind Maps, and on-the-job success stories, and outlines fresh approaches to networking with colleagues and negotiating with bosses. Savvy and entertaining, Soaring on Your Strengths will be the job and promotion seekers guide for the twenty-first century. In Soaring on Your Strengths, Ryan shows you how to:

  • identify your most marketable qualities and strengths
  • self-promote and brand yourself for the best jobs and promotions.
  • establish an appealing career identity
  • implement fresh approaches to networking with colleagues
  • improve your relationship with the boss

Filled with her client success stories, solid strategies, and smart, easy-to-follow advice, this book is the next best thing to having your own career coach on-call to advance your career and prosper.
