The Proactive Professional explains exactly what proactivity actually is, and how to attain it. Chrissy lays out an easy-to-understand, step by step framework, called the Proactive Skillset. The proactive skillset is made up of the following six essential elements: Big Picture Understanding, Situational Awareness, Future Focus, Strategic Foresight, Intentional Action, and Self-Evaluation.Through many real-world examples, including using two fictional characters, Proactive Patty and Reactive Rita, the concepts become really easy to understand and to put into practice.
What's great about Chrissy's book is that it can be used not just in one's professional life, but in one's personal life as well. The skills you learn in this book can help you get past all sorts of self-imposed roadblocks.
This was a great book with excellent advice for Professionals. I liked it so much I bought the Kindle Version so I would always have it as a reference.
Normally, I'm a fairly quick reader, but as I said, I ending up taking my time reading this one. The chapters explaining each part of the "Proactive Skillset" wheel deserve to be implemented for awhile before moving on to the next step, since they build upon each other.
Whether you're looking to learn how to be a proactive person, or want to increase the proactive skills that you already have, you'll benefit from this book!
