Chief Executive Officer
Gary Burnison is CEO of Korn Ferry and author of Take Control: The Career You Want, Where You Want, and eight other leadership and career advancement books.
The workscape has changed—one of the most dramatic transformations in the past few years. Think about it. For so many people just starting their careers, working virtually is all they know. For everyone else who has had the remote option, work is no longer synonymous with a physical location. In this push-pull world, that means navigating and negotiating between the flexibility and opportunity you want—and the commitment and performance that organizations need. In other words, we need to take control.
This is the book to guide your career path—for moving forward and getting ahead. In the first section, you'll understand how you're wired—your A.C.T. (being authentic, making a connection, and giving others a taste of you who are you), tapping your right brain, and learning as the secret to sustainable success. In the second section, you'll learn how to make the most of your job, from being indispensable to networking within. And in the third section, you'll master working with others—getting along and understanding your colleagues, navigating culture and communicating and connecting.
In Take Control, you'll discover how you can have the career you've always wanted.
