Your Next Move: The Leader's Guide to Successfully Navigating Major Career Transitions

Considerations. Transitions within corporate settings can be dicey, and in his new book, Your Next Move, Michael Watkins helps readers consider how to make transitions more likely to succeed. Any reader facing a new role within an organization will find ways to prepare for that transition after reading this book. Watkins does well in offering approaches to assessments, and to diagnosing a situation prior to taking action. While I was a bit turned off by his buzzword tools like STARS and FOGLAMP, I can see how his templates could be useful. I found the anecdotes or stories he uses to illustrate various transitions will either relate or not to individual readers. At the end of each chapter, Watkins provides questions and a checklist. Your Next Move provides a useful framework and engaging considerations for anyone involved in a work transition.
