This book says it's written for corporate leaders, but it's really for anyone who manages, wants to own a business, or wants to establish leadership status in any profession/industry. Basically, if you want to advance, you should be reading things like this; if you're already an executive, you may find this to be a helpful reference.

I would call this an insider's guide to the tools & skills necessary for managing people & businesses, & for corporate advancement. A great reference for existing executives (learning on the fly, diversity, time management, building effective teams, etc), and I would even recommend this to college students & young professionals to learn the culture and skills that are expected when you reach a certain level in your career.

Some of my favorite sections are: innovation management, organizational agility, sizing up people, strategic agility, composure, compassion, functional/technical skills, managing and measuring work, building effective teams, etc.

There are lots of books available on this topic, but this one is very concise, chock full of information (900+ pages), lots of skimmable bullet points, and very comprehensive.

This reference has been incredibly helpful to me both in charting my professional growth as well as in helping those working in my department with suggested actions for professional growth in specific areas.

The book identifies professional competences and defines what each skill 'looks like' when you are unskilled, skilled and even defines overuse which is very helpful. I've even used these definitions when preparing evaluations as they are wonderfully descriptive.

This tool suggests multiple short and long term strategies for development of each competency. Great book!

Although initially developed to be used in conjunction with the Career Architect Competency cards and the development of personal weaknesses, I find it an even better tool to provide suggestions for leveraging my strengths. Too much time, in the past, has been wasted in working on my weaknesses. Let someone else on the team fill in for my weaknesses. I need to develop my strengths and find additional uses for them. That is where the company/organization/team will gain the most value from me being the best me that I can be and that's where I find the "Planner" most beneficial. Good luck (if you believe in luck).
