Yet far too often, leaders fail to transition effectively into new roles. The resulting costs are high, for your career and the organization.
In Your Next Move, leadership-transition guru Michael Watkins shows how you can survive and thrive in all the major transitions you will face during your career, including promotion, on-boarding into a new organization, and making an international move. With real-life examples and case studies, he illustrates the defining hurdles associated with each type of transition.
He then provides the insights, strategies, and tools-including relationship reengineering, business systems analysis, and "organizational immunology" - you'll need to accelerate through these crucial turning points and continue moving up in your career.
The necessary complement to the author's best-selling guide The First 90 Days, Your Next Move offers the keen observations, tried-and-true management wisdom, and practical good sense Watkins is renowned for. It's a vital resource for any manager or executive seeking to maintain career momentum.

A transplanted Englishman, I spend my time on biography, history and military books. I appreciate good English and good narration.
At last, an American business author who writes as if he will be believed, a narrator who reads clearly as if he were sitting in a lounge with you, no repetition or exaggerated strong points and no examples gleaned from a clammy home life.
I found myself reviewing my performance over the past two decades and wishing I had had this book beside me. It passed the ultimate two listener's book tests: I wished I could highlight things as I drove in my car; and I went out and bought the book. No need for the abridged version; Watkins wastes no words. Dry, realistic, insightful and helpful. I shall get his first book, 'The First 90 Days'.
