Working Identity: Unconventional Strategies for Reinventing Your Career
Drawing from in-depth research on managers and professionals in transition, Ibarra describes reinvention as an iterative process of trial and error. Through engrossing stories of successful career-changers - from a literature professor-turned-stockbroker to an investment banker-turned-novelist - she unveils a new model for change based on three "acts of reinvention"; experimenting with new activities, interacting in new networks of people, and constantly reworking the story of our changing identities. Reinventing the act of reinvention itself, Working Identity dares the dreamer in each of us to craft a more fulfilling future.
