“Out of curiosity and necessity, I have made a personal, lifelong study of self-development and management skills,”
SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Do you want to get promoted? Rather than waste time hoping to climb a rung of the management ladder, take your professional future into your own hands.
That’s the philosophy of Executive Ian R. Mackintosh, a management expert who has worked in fast-paced Silicon Valley for more than 30 years.
Mackintosh shares his knowledge and professional insights in the new book, “Empower Your Inner Manager: Essential Skills, Self-Assessment and Effective Planning That Secure Successful Careers” (published by iUniverse).
“Out of curiosity and necessity, I have made a personal, lifelong study of self-development and management skills,” Mackintosh said. “In these tough business and economic times, I realized I had useful information to share with managers at all levels of seniority.”
As Mackintosh points out, competition for management jobs increases each year. This makes it more important than ever to stand out in today’s job market.
In “Empower Your Inner Manager,” Mackintosh presents a learning process that shows readers how to:
- Identify management positions
- Honestly assess the skills needed to optimize candidacy
- Target only the skills needed to improve
- Develop a personalized plan to implement necessary improvements
- Reassess and revisit growth needs as they evolve in the future
