Getting Ahead: Three Steps to Take Your Career to the Next Level

What makes one person become more successful than another? According to author Joel Garfinkle, the simple answer is that while some people leave the fate of their career in someone else's hands, others control it by focusing on three critical skills.

In GETTING AHEAD: Three Steps to Take Your Career to the Next Level (Wiley; 978-0-470-91587-5; September 2011) by Joel Garfinkle, Garfinkle reveals his signature model for mastering three skills to take your career to the next level: Perception, Visibility, and Influence.

The PVI-model of professional advancement will teach you to: (1) Actively promote yourself as an asset and valuable person inside the organization, (2) Increase your visibility to gain others’ recognition and appreciation for your efforts and (3) Become a person of influence who makes key decisions inside the organization.

More specifically, readers will learn how to:

•     Increase exposure, boost visibility and enhance perceived value to their organization.

•     Increase their profile across the organization and among higher levels of management so others know them, see their results and acknowledge the impact they bring to the company.

•     Eliminate the roadblocks that keep them from advancing.

•     Become a known, valued and desired commodity at your company.

Getting ahead in any corporation is tough, particularly in today’s downtrodden economy. GETTING AHEAD provides practical advice, specific exercises and action-oriented tips that will help readers learn key skills, practical tools, and approaches, all of which can be transferred immediately to their current work situation.
