Descriptions du produit

How Successful Career Changers Turn Fantasy into Reality Whether as a daydream or a spoken desire, nearly all of us have entertained the notion of reinventing ourselves. Feeling unfulfilled, burned out, or just plain unhappy with what we're doing, we long to make that leap into the unknown. But we also hold on, white-knuckled, to the years of time and effort we've invested in our current profession. In this powerful book, Herminia Ibarra presents a new model for career reinvention that flies in the face of everything we've learned from "career experts." While common wisdom holds that we must first know what we want to do before we can act, Ibarra argues that this advice is backward. Knowing, she says, is the result of doing and experimenting. Career transition is not a straight path toward some predetermined identity, but a crooked journey along which we try on a host of "possible selves" we might become.Based on her in-depth research on professionals and managers in transition, Ibarra outlines an active process of career reinvention that leverages three ways of "working identity": experimenting with new professional activities, interacting in new networks of people, and making sense of what is happening to us in light of emerging possibilities. Through engrossing stories--from a literature professor turned stockbroker to an investment banker turned novelist--Ibarra reveals a set of guidelines that all successful reinventions share. She explores specific ways that hopeful career changers of any background can: Explore possible selves Craft and execute "identity experiments" Create "small wins" that keep momentum going Survive the rocky period between career identities Connect with role models and mentors who can ease the transition Make time for reflection--without missing out on windows of opportunity Decide when to abandon the old path in order to follow the new Arrange new events into a coherent story of who we are becoming. A call to the dreamer in each of

Pour ceux qui cherchent à réorienter leur carrière, leur vie, ce livre d'Ibarra, professeur à l'INSEAD, s'écarte des chemins battus et des logiques conventionnelles (définition d'un objectif professionnel, identification du plan d'action pour y parvenir, mise en oeuvre) pour nous aider à porter un nouveau regard sur les efforts à entreprendre pour changer de carrière, changer de vie. Très agréable à lire et plein de bonnes idées changer son regard.

Enfin un ouvrage qui sort des tartes à la crème. On devient en faisant, en tirant les leçons de nos experiences pour autant que nous soyons dans un environnement qui accepte le droit à l'erreur et les leçons à en tirer. Le droit à l'erreur c'est l'innovation en marche, la prise de risqué versus un environnement de preservation des avantages acquis

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Self-Assertive tone, dry read, self-conflicting ideas 3 juillet 2016
Par FromPhilly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I really wanted to like this book and help me investigate a new strategy on how to explore my different passions. However, I just couldn't connect with the writing style. Although the author offers many approaches that have also worked for me, the tone of voice and dryness of the examples was overbearing. There are also many self-conflicting points. The author argues that a test and learn approach to finding what works for us is preferred to planning and implementing, but fact is that it takes planning and implementing to test and learn. They're complementary, not competing ideas. Even some of her case studies describe a process of planning before trying things. The whole thing feels like Mrs. Ibarra is trying to fit real life examples into her "framework," shut all other concepts and approaches to the journey of finding one's passion, in an effort to establish herself as a thought leader in the field and keep herself relevant at Insead.

Living one's passion, in my opinion, involves a journey of self-exploration. In asking ourselves what we want to do, we need to first answer who we are. Defining our values, what we see as success, what our history and present say about us... Unfortunately, Mrs. Ibarra doesn't explore much else beside "try different jobs." In my opinion, a very shallow effort. The concept of understanding oneself is left completely out. Even if one finds something they enjoy doing by adopting this approach, I doubt that they will understand Why, and live a blind life.

I read chapter 1 and was left frustrated at the tone of voice, then I skimmed over sections of chapter 2 and 3 and disagreed with so much of the content... Sorry, not my cup of tea. Good luck to all those that try the author's tactics.

What do I suggest instead?

I recommend "no fears no excuses" by Larry Smith for those that feel stuck in their careers, and "how to measure your life" by Clayton Christensen for those that want a perspective on how to be happier. They're in my opinion, much more comprehensive material on the question of "how can I be happier"

Good luck!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Expertly interpreted cases of a multitude of people changing careers 18 août 2015
Par TheFastAndTheBulbous - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Expertly interpreted cases of a multitude of people changing careers. I learned about this book because it was referenced in Reid Hoffman's "The Start-Up Of You", but this is way better. One of the reasons it excels at explaining a topic that is so hard to pin down is because it doesn't pretend to be a self-help book. These case studies are the result of academic research. There are about 10 pages towards the end of the book, in a section called "Putting These Unconventional Strategies to Work" that make up the only part of the book resembling advice. The entire remainder of the text is building up convincing arguments through lots and lots of case studies. The believability of these arguments is surely tied to the shear number of cases examined, each one interpreted, but also not weighted with too much meaning, so as to not lead readers to rely on mere anecdotes, as most self-help books seem to do.

For anyone trying to identify with people examined in the case studies, be aware of the interviewed sample: you don't find out until the end that, "Almost half (46 percent) live and work outside the United States. It is a highly credentialed sample: All have college degrees, and about 74 percent have graduate degrees (e.g., business, science, law, and so on)." So if you don't resemble that demographic, you might have to make a bigger leap to relate to some of the cases. Still, worthwhile. Also, the interviews were all done between 1999 and 2001, so the importance of social media (e.g., LinkedIn) is not really considered. That didn't seem to matter, but worth mentioning. Finally, it's not exactly a nail-biter and some readers might find it a little dense at times, but overall it's very readable and enjoyable, and highly recommended for really anyone who's been working for more than a few years and isn't completely satisfied with their professional life.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read! 17 janvier 2017

Although the introduction says that this is intended for people that have been working for 10+ years or so and that are looking to chage careers, as a recent law graduate, I also found it extremely helpful. The theory exposed in the book is a departure from conventional doctrines that provides the reader with a fresh and organic perspective on professional growth. I found that the book was particularly effective in relieving my anxiety about deciding what career path I want to take. At its core, it teaches that it is ok to not have a detailed and clear idea of what you want your career to be, because the right opportunities will always show up and the choices that you make will eventually lead you to where you want to be.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting Read with a Narrow Focus 13 novembre 2013
Par Sarah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book. I found myself agreeing with the overall theory. I liked the stories of professionals changing careers. They were each unique and interesting. The book was insightful and made me think about career change in a new way. However, I think many people reading this book will feel somewhat excluded, as if the book wasn't written for them. This book should come with a warning label because it focuses exclusively on high-level positions, as in vice presidents, investment bankers, surgeons, and professors. It doesn't contain any stories of more everyday people such as teachers or newspaper editors. For this reason, not all the advice seems viable. Not everyone rubs shoulders with venture capitalists, CEOs, and headhunters, or is on the Board of Directors of a nonprofit. We can't all quit our jobs and have a list of high-profile freelance clients already knocking at our door. In other words, the book assumes you have a huge network full of lucrative, influential contacts. It assumes you might have the ability to take a sabbatical or attend an executive course at Harvard as a way to explore new possibilities. Some of us have to actually job search and go on interviews to change course. The author actually acknowledges this at one point in the book, but I wish she took a chapter or three to dig into this, rather than completely avoiding the subject. I found the book very interesting (which is why I still rated it four stars), but I also wondered if it really applied to me. I also think the author was biased in choosing stories of career changers who fit her overall theory. The "data" isn't really data. It's just convenient, interesting examples that fit one point of view. I'd still recommend it to a friend, though.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish I had found this book five years ago! Yet I wasn't ready for it then... 25 octobre 2010
Par G. Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am not sure that I would have been ready for Dr. Ibarra's book in 2005 when I finally paid attention to the signals in my own environment that I needed a massive career change. I'm not sure that I would have heard its message, which is part of the point of the book as well.

It would have helped me, however, realize that what I was going through was "normal". This book shakes up the myths that you need to discover what you are good at and make an educated series of career research actions and decisions. For most of us who have done the seemingly random walk through career and life transitions, she provides a backdrop of case studies to show patterns of uncertainties that happen to many other people as well. She illustrates well how the people around you signal and reinforce both change and drag factors, how the narratives develop over time in your new life, and how the new stories of your new life only start to make sense toward the END of the transition.

I found the academic connections and endnotes refreshing, attaching this work to research and core theories in major thinkers. The examples were easy to relate to and memorable.

I have recommended this book so far to a dozen friends over 40 who are trying to understand the smoke signals of change in their own lives, struggling through long transitions (exacerbated by the economic malaise), or staring at the tensions between their current work environments and the ticking timeclock of their lives. I have taken personal notes throughout my Kindle version of this on my iPad and keep rereading and thinking through the document -- nice way to enjoy this book!
