5.0 out of 5 stars Be Your Own Executive Coach July 7 2003
Format:Paperback
In the five years that Peer Resources has provided a Find-A-Mentor service, requests for mentors have come from students starting a career path, employees changing jobs, veteran workers seeking different opportunities, and executives hoping to build a better career path. What tied this diverse group together was that they typically shared the same reasons for seeking a mentor: (1) finding a way to transfer their dreams into practice; and (2) finding a way to live a more authentic life in their work.
Working with a mentor or a coach is an excellent choice for accomplishing either of these goals, and in her latest book, What Next? The Complete Guide to Taking Control of Your Working Life, Dr. Barbara Moses provides the mentoring and coaching necessary to help people learn to live authentically and turn their dreams into reality. No other book on the market can provide individuals with the awareness, options, skills, and understanding necessary to deal with the bewildering array of challenges and opportunities in today's shifting work world. A virtual bible of resources, this book features self-assessment tools, quizzes, examples, guided exercises, diagnostic instruments, career wisdom based on tough realities, and tips on how to keep from getting derailed and how to overcome career challenges such as burn-out, boredom, and lack of passion.
Dr. Moses, called a Career Guru by Fast Company magazine, believes that the key to both successful career growth and life choices is for individuals to arm themselves with protective skills and act as their own career activists. She identifies 12 career strategies starting with building on your own skills, talents and strengths to finding a mentor to learning how to deal with disappointment, stressful situations and pressure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heading in a New Direction Aug. 30 2003
Format:Paperback
"Work is one of the most intimate expressions of our identity. Bad work crushes us. It destroys our sense of competence and spills over into all areas of our life. Great work, in contrast, inspires us. It makes our souls sing. It allows us to be the best we can be." ~Barbara Moses
Whether you are just starting out and are looking for that first job to start you on your career path or you are considering changing careers in order to find a more fulfilling work environment, I can highly recommend "What Next?"
When you start reading the introduction, you will be amazed by the depth to which this book will take you. This is not a dry how-to-find-a-job book, this is about finding a soul-satisfying vocation. It is about finding work that not only provides a sense of purpose, but allows us to express our values, talents and strengths.
The two main ideas of "What Next?" include developing an independent attitude of being who you are by expressing your authentic self and acknowledging that a good job is a right, not a privilege.
Dr. Barbara Moses is a career expert who shows people how to uncover the core themes of their present jobs and find a career to help them become an expert in their field. She is known as a career guru, and her widely-read career column in the national Globe and Mail shows her deep love for career activism.
In this excellent source, you will:
Find out why career decisions can be distorted by unhealthy attitudes about money.
Discover your core interests.
Know how to express your authentic self in any work situation.
Find the information on how to avoid being a victim of age discrimination.
Overcome fear and learn to find work in tough times.
The 5 chapters include information on how to:
