The Squiggly Career

Career ladders and jobs for life are a thing of the past

Today, we're living in a world of squiggly careers, where moving frequently and fluidly between roles, industries, locations, and even careers, is becoming the new normal. Squiggly careers can feel stressful and overwhelming, but if you know how to make the most of them, they can be full of opportunity, freedom and purpose.

And to make the most of our increasingly squiggly careers we need to answer some important questions: What am I good at? What do I stand for? What motivates and drives me? Where do I want to go in the future?

In The Squiggly Career, you'll learn how to:
- Play to your super strengths
- Discover your values
- Overcome your confidence gremlins
- Build better support networks
- Explore your future possibilities

Packed with insights about the changing shape of work, exercises to fuel your growth, and tips and inspiration from highly successful people, this book will help you be happier, and ultimately more successful in your career.
