Professeur à Harvard, Robert S. Kaplan a pendant 22 ans travaillé chez Goldman Sachs jusqu'à en devenir vice-chairman. Il s'occupe par ailleurs de différentes "bonnes œuvres". Ce livre reprend un cours qu'il donne en formation initiale et continue à la business school.
Il nous guide dans une réflexion sur comment mettre sa carrière sur les rails du meilleur accomplissement de soi possible.
Le style est sobre, didactique et clair. le livre se lit facilement. Le parcours qu'il propose est assez classique : recenser sur ses forces et faiblesses, trouver ses passions, mieux se connaître, relire sa vie, savoir saisir les opportunités, devenir un authentique leader. Les conseils qu'il prodigue sont avisés. Quelques exercices pratiques accompagnent le lecteur dans ce cheminement.
Si Kaplan est un bon conseiller (mentor ou coach, suivant les cas et la distinction qu'il propose dans ce livre), il reste un peu sec sur la dimension spirituelle qui conduit à l'unité de vie. Par exemple, les conflits entre vie familiale et vie professionnelle sont peu abordés (il a visiblement très largement privilégié la seconde).
Ce livre apportera un aide appréciable à ceux qui cherchent leur voie dans la sphère professionnelle. Mais il manque de profondeur et laissera ceux qui veulent engager une réflexion approfondie sur leur faim.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Might have been good advice 20-30 years ago; not for entrepreneurs 8 janvier 2014
Par careful buyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I saw Robert Kaplan on television, was greatly interested, and just finished the book. Unfortunately, this book is written only for those working within large corporations with lots of job security and many choices about career paths and ranges of compensation. I don't know if those people exist anymore. His talk about teams, coaches, bosses, and management reads like something out of Tom Peter's era, when America was rich, jobs weren't being slashed, and employees weren't required to do the work of 2-3 people. He even offers advice on how to choose the right job when you first graduate from Harvard Business School! "Finding your passion" to Kaplan simply means being mentored into a more rewarding job in your corporation or –– super radical idea –– moving to a different large corporation. The section on assessing your weaknesses and strengths is most valuable, however, it is structured largely within the context how of your boss and direct reports view you, and therefore has limited usefulness for those who are engaged in more entrepreneurial endeavors. Too bad.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 To paraphrase Walt Whitman, "We are large, we contain multitudes." 20 mai 2013
Par Robert Morris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Self-improvement initiatives or, if you prefer, self-fulfillment or self-actualization initiatives, are best viewed as an on-going journey, not as an ultimate destination. Many authors of books about that process invoke the map or road map metaphor, and rightly so, because it implies and (yes) enables all manner of appropriate dimensions of internal as well as external exploration and discovery. This seems to be what Robert Steven Kaplan has in mind when observing, "I have come to believe that the key to achieving your aspirations lies not in `being a success' but rather in [begin italics] working to reach your unique potential [end italics]. This requires you to create your own definition of success rather than accept a definition created by others...This approach takes courage and hard work. It does not yield easy answers or get you to a final destination. It is, instead, a multistage, lifelong effort. It involves developing a different mind-set and a new set of work habits."

At this point in my brief commentary, I want to express appreciation of Kaplan's previous book, What to Ask the Person in the Mirror. Its title refers to anyone who seeks both knowledge and wisdom that will improve quality of life as well as standard of living. What Kaplan offers in abundance is assistance with framing questions that can help to achieve those worthy objectives. Those who read the book will be much better prepared to ask them; better yet, they will be much better prepared to obtain the right answers to them. In this book, as its subtitle suggests, he offers "a road map for reaching your potential," one that is accompanied by a wealth of information, insights, and counsel as well as self-diagnostic exercises to help his readers determine what they are really meant to be and to do. As Oscar Wilde so wisely advised, "Be yourself. Every one else is taken." But as Darrell Royal once observed, "Potential" means "you ain't done it yet."

These are among the dozens of passages that caught my eye, also listed to indicate the scope of Kaplan's coverage.

o Who Defines Your Success? (Pages 18-22)
o Five Suggested Rules of the Road (24-30)
o Assessing Your Strengths and Weaknesses (31-37)
o You Don't Have to Be Good at Everything (56-57)
o The Pursuit of Passion, and, Understanding Your Passions (63-66)
o The Power of Narrative: Three Steps (85-97)
o Being at Your Best (102-105)
o Dealing with a Painful Setback, and, Dealing with Injustice (126-129)
o A Star Wants to Realize His Potential (138-142)
o The Power of an Ownership Mind-Set (149-150)
Note: Our lives tend to be the result of our decisions. There is also great power in taking personal ownership of accountability for those decisions.
o Values, Boundaries, and Your Philosophy, and, Character and Leadership (156-162)
o Try Building Your Relationship Muscles (173-175)
o Creating Supportive Relationships (181-182)
o This Book: It's About You (196-198)
o Next Steps (201-203)

While reading and then re-reading this book, I was again reminded of many of the observations shared by other authors in their books, notably Rick Warren in The Purpose Driven Life, Bill George in True North, James O'Toole's Creating the Good Life, Randy Pausch in The Last Lecture, and Clayton Christensen in How Will You Measure Your Life? However different they and their works may be from Kaplan and his, all of them -- they and he -- stress the importance of continuous self-improvement to serve purposes and to achieve goals worthy of our very best efforts. For the title of this review, I chose a paraphrase of Whitman's line in "Song of Myself" because it correctly suggests almost unlimited potentialities for personal growth and professional development. Robert Steven Kaplan wrote this book to help each of us to fulfill as many of them as we can.

When concluding his book, he observes, "If you follow your own path, I don't know how much money you will accumulate, how much stature you will achieve, or how many titles you will garner. But if you're true to your convictions and principles, I know you're far more likely to feel like a big success. In the end, that feeling will make all the difference."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Why you should read this book 30 décembre 2013
Par JP_Blat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
In this book, Robert Kaplan puts forward a compelling case to move our attention away from conventional wisdom and to focus on using intrinsic metrics to write our own definition of success. Metrics that are based on our own potential, strengths, passions and beliefs as opposed to what society expects from us.

Although chapter four is explicitly called “Understand yourself”, I will argue that a good chunk of the book including chapter 2 (Assess your strengths and weaknesses), chapter 3 (Finding your passion) and chapter 6 (Good vs. great that deals with values and beliefs) is about knowing and understanding yourself. This is quite valuable to the reader as identifying what you’re meant to do is clearly a quest to know, to choose and to connect with our own purpose.

As you get to understand yourself better, Kaplan challenges the reader to look at what our job or desired job requires and to identify gaps that might exist so we can take actions to close them. I found it quite useful that the author explains his ideas in terms of very practical and real situations that we tend to face during our careers. He complements these ideas with key questions and exercises that help the reader reflect and gain clarity on this elusive matter. Clarity that is also helpful in other areas of our lives.

I was especially interested in his definition of leadership: “Leadership is the ability to figure out what you believe and then summon the courage to appropriately act on those beliefs”. Although Kaplan presents us with additional concepts that support our internal quest such as “The importance of relationships” (chapter 7) and keys to develop a plan “The road map” (chapter 8) I wish he would have developed more specific recommendations to help us translate the lessons learned into actions and results.

I enjoyed studying this book and I am looking forward to more books he might write providing insights on how to deal with the resistance we all face summoning the courage and wisdom necessary to act on our beliefs.

Very thoughtful in terms of being self-aware in pursuit of a career choice. Very simple models for determining how your presuppositions based off of others ideas and wishes for life in general cloud your honest and clear assessment of your specific strengths and desires.

The author is very honest in presenting the core matter.

He leads reader step by step in analysis and adminsters the precise solutions that bring about change. I have highlighted many sentences and these are very true reflection of what is going on in our lives currently. Very well researched work. Prasanna
