Must Reads and Listen!!

For those utilizing the material presented here, I strongly encourage you to incorporate the guidelines and principles highlighted in the Workshop with the examples and disciplines outlined here in Must Reads.

While the Workshop material is the practical framework for this undertaking, the Must Reads personalize the process. I hope and believe that by combining these materials, you will have greater clarity as you move forward in this process.

While an interview or meeting may very well be a single event, a career is a long term proposition. I hope you find this Career Planning site helpful as you navigate towards long term success.
