Description

Practical ideas and strategies to support the development of leadership.

Whether you are looking for a job or want to make the very best of the position you have, Kick Start Your Career can help.

Kick Start Your Career is designed for people who are ambitious and want to create a successful career for themselves. It is a no-nonsense, jargon-free manual full of practical ideas and strategies to help you get the job you want and to make a success of it from day one.

Kick Start provides advice and support to help you to manage your time effectively and to become a consummate professional. Everything in the book has been tried and tested in a variety of organisations; it is a distillation of over thirty years’ experience of developing leadership at every level.

You will find it useful to read the book as part of your preparation for starting your job or as part of your induction programme. It is also very useful as a “how to” guide if you are tackling a new skill, such as giving presentations or chairing meetings.

The book covers themes which will support your development from novice to confident professional looking for promotion. Themes include:

  • Creating a great CV.
  • Interview technique.
  • Being a consummate professional.
  • Being assertive.
  • Effective communication.
  • Giving great presentations.
  • Chairing meetings effectively.
  • Problem solving.
  • The art of managing people.

And so much more!

The book offers a practical guide, and each theme is broken down into a simple, easy to follow format. There are leadership audits which will help you identify your strengths and areas for ongoing development. These offer a great developmental tool and enable you to gauge your progress from novice to expert.
