From the Publisher:

Important endorsements have come from Susan Willard, Leadership Development Manager, Hewlett-Packard; Jim Kouzes, coauthor of "The Leadership Challenge" and "Credibility" and chairman emeritus of Tom Peters Company; Ann Rhoads, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers; Beverly Kaye, author of "Love 'Em or Lose 'Em" and "Up Is Not the Only Way;" Linda Phillips-Jones, author of "The New Mentors and Proteges;" and Jim Robinson, coauthor of "Performance Consulting."

From the Inside Flap:

If it takes a village to raise a family, it surely takes a strong network of colleagues and mentoring relationships to get noticed and promoted, find a new job with ease, and thrive in today's new organization. Whether you are a savvy veteran or just starting out in your career, a strong mentor network can provide you with career security in these ever-changing times. Think of it as having your own cast of personal coaches who can show you the ropes of a new profession or a business, guide you through the maze of your organization's politics and culture, or open new doors to opportunities that might otherwise be closed to you.

Here are the tools for taking charge of your career success. Author Kathleen Barton lays the groundwork for building a network of people who can accelerate your learning and development, help you improve your job performance, and support you in achieving your goals. She presents dozens of real-life examples demonstrating how strong mentoring and effective networking have boosted the career of well-known business leaders and other professionals at companies as diverse as Intel, the Tom Peters Group, Hewlett-Packard, and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Barton also draws on her own life experiences as both mentor and mentee to deliver this clear and simple process for building a network of mentors and contacts who can help you grow and develop in your career:

* Create a career or business mission statement
* Assess your specific development needs and determine how others can help
* Identify potential mentors and contacts
* Establish and maintain strong partnering relationships

Packed with worksheets, checklists, assessment tools, chapter summaries, and key action lists for each step of the way, this take-charge tool kit can help you make your mark with a career that matters.
