Beverly Kaye's New Book on Career Mobility to be Published by Berrett-Koehler
Book will transform conversations about career options into rich dialogues
By: Career Systems International
Dr. Kaye is a recognized career development and employee engagement thought leader and international best-selling author of several books, including, Love 'Em or Lose 'Em: Getting Good People to Stay; Love It, Don't Leave It: 26 Ways to Get What You Want at Work; Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations Employees Want; and Hello Stay Interviews, Goodbye Talent Loss: A Manager's Playbook. 30 years ago, Dr. Kaye's original book, Up Is Not the Only Way, began a discussion on career mobility for its primary audience of human resource professionals. This new book is written for a much broader audience, has entirely new content from beginning to end, and uses a direct and engaging style to make the "what's next" conversation easier.
In today's rapidly changing workplace—a more global, multi-generational, dispersed, and complex workplace than ever before—a career mobility mindset is essential. Many traditional career advancement routes are much less available now than in the past. Managers struggle with the fact that organizations simply cannot deliver promotions for every employee who wants or even deserves that opportunity. Additionally vertical moves may not even be the best option for many people. At the same time employees want and need to know the answer to the question, "Do I have a future here?"
For managers, mentors, leaders, and peer coaches, this new book offers a lens through which to examine and master the career mobility mindset needed today. And it lays out—in simple, practical terms—ways to effectively explore six approaches to career enhancement.
Up is Not the Only Way will provide tools to transform conversations about career options into rich dialogues about the multiple ways employees can grow, learn, and build a career. The authors offer advice, stories, and practical how-to tips for making conversations about career flexibility, agility, and adaptability easier—and more productive experiences.
