Capitalizing on Career Chaos: Bringing Creativity and Purpose to Your Work and Life

Front Cover
Davies-Black Publishing, 2005 - Business & Economics - 162 pages
Capitalizing on Career Chaos delivers the tools and strategies to become an authentic, trailblazing pioneer who can thrive in this age of unprecedented change. Helen Harkness draws on her work with more than 6,000 individuals and her nearly 30 years as a career management expert to present a timely process for regenerating, redirecting or crafting a new career-- from the inside out. With expert advice, real-life success stories and more than a dozen interactive tools, Capitalizing on Career Chaos begins at the beginning: looking inward to develop a clear sense of the values and traditions that define our authentic selves, and the important Meaning Magnets that serve as our focal points for change. Harkness's easy-to-implement, four-step process shows how to look outward to match core instincts and talents with external realities; look forward to create a vision of the future; and look beyond to a specific course of action that will move us from visualization to the realization of our goals.
