Career Advice You Won’t Get From Your Boss

In today’s working world, where job ladders are a thing of the past, people need to take charge and strategically manage their career path. But self-directing your own career development can feel overwhelming. Do you want to deploy more of your professional passion in your current organization but can’t quite overcome barriers? Are you feeling stuck in your life or job? How can you take advantage of today’s uncertainty and ambiguity to jumpstart your own career changes?

In this interactive and inspiring session with author Lisa Prior, founder of Prior Consulting and author of Take Charge of Your VIEW: Career Advice You Won’t Get From Your Boss, you’ll learn the secrets to creating win-win growth opportunities for yourself and your organization. Through a fireside chat and guided experiences you will leave with one idea and one concrete practice, something you can do often, to take charge of your career and create work that you love. Lisa Prior and Ali Farquhar will participate in the fireside chat.

About the book

Lisa Prior, a 20-year veteran leadership coach and change consultant, is on a mission to help people build the career of their dreams. Unlike most self-help books that tell people to quit their jobs and follow a “do what you love and the money will follow” theory, Lisa challenges you to dig deep to develop yourself, your career and your organization in your current role, whether you work for yourself or someone else.

When you take this six-week journey, you will discover your VIEW, Lisa’s framework of skills needed to create the career you love: Vision, Insight, Engagement, and Will. Lisa shares success stories of people she has coached and offers practical tips, including: (1) how to capture your VISION; (2) how to gain INSIGHT through feedback and “flow”; (3) how to boost career ENGAGEMENT through win-win situations and by abandoning the idea that success relies on “who you know”; and (4) how to cultivate WILL by creating your mentoring network and naming your mountain— the thing you shy away from. In Lisa’s case, this mountain was a MOUNTAIN. By the end of this interactive book, you will be able to jumpstart your own career changes, and put your VIEW into action, lead the life you were born to live, and do the work you were born to do. Whether you are 22 or 62, you can take charge of your VIEW.
