This book is wonderful at helping you figure out how to get to your brass ring. For those who have followed other advice, such as get a degree, work hard and accomplish great things, but still don't get the opportunities to really grow in their career, Todd Rhoad provides you the insight into using resources you may never have thought of using; that is, other people.

The biggest thing readers should know about this book is that it teaches you a method for becoming more successful in your career. You'll learn how to draw out a map to your goals and what resources you need to get there. This approach doesn't leave you alone to solve all the problems and challenges you may face because you have a team of supporters right there to help you.

After going through the book, I recognized a few things that may be holding me back such as I'm always doing what I think is right. The team approach would provide other perspectives that would provide a bigger picture and a more accurate call for action. I highly recommend this book!

Format: Paperback
This book is so relevant to so many business situations today. This team technique could save victims of a layoff, downsizing or buyouts. The strategy map not only helps those who are pondering what to do in their career but how to do it as well. The author is obviously a maniacal researcher from all the resources he used, which explains why this common-sense guide works so well.

Impressed with the sound research and coordination of ideas to suggest a novel approach to career management. Todd Rhoad's team based approach builds upon the principle of getting more done with others than individually. He demonstrates how an effective group or team can help accomplish career goals as opposed to the responsibility of one indiviudal. It's a great system to enhance career and personal mobility - an excellent program to achieve your goals!
