"Working Identity" by Herminia Ibarra
Herminia Ibarra, Professor of Organizational Psychology at prestigious business schools such as INSEAD and now London Business School, provides solid career change advice. A career transition is a process, not a sudden event. It encourages the reader to playfully handle their own professional identity. And above all, to experiment - be it by becoming a pro bono board member of a charitable association, during one’s holidays or by taking on a part-time job and experimenting with this new role. All in all an encouraging book, in particular based on numerous portraits of people in transition.
