If you are willing to dig into this excellent resource and apply what you learn, you will be rewarded with the wisdom needed to help you have a long and lasting career in the field of your choice. You can take the CareerWhitt Assessment to see what is driving your career decisions: your emotions or your core values. Knowing this can help you make career decisions that will propel you forward instead of leaving you spinning your wheels. The best review I can give this book is to tell you that I am passing it along to my four, grown children hoping they will read and heed Rick’s wise counsel. They are all just starting out in life and have long careers ahead of them. If you are like me, you could probably name dozens of people that wish they had this advice when they first started their careers. This would make an excellent high school or college graduation gift. I received a copy of this book from The Blog Spot Network in exchange for my review.

How many times have you been unsatisfied with your job and been quick to move on? Have you continually asked the question, “How do I get promoted?” You’re not alone and the answer may surprise you. In his book, Outgrow Your Space at Work, Rick Whitted brings a fresh approach to this and many other questions. His thoughts and advice challenge the reader to think outside the box, looking inward. If you’re thinking of moving on to another role within your organization, applying for a promotion, or quitting, this is a great reference book to read before making any decisions! It’s packed full of sound advice from an author who knows what he’s talking about. Rick Whitted’s experience of managing teams brings a wealth of knowledge. The book is well-written and keeps your attention with stories from Mr. Whitted’s career. This not only gives us examples, but also helps bring home his point. Part One talks about what motivates our careers. Why is a promotion so important? How do we measure success? The Four P’s of Promotion. In Part Two, Mr. Whitted gives us nine steps to outgrow our workspace. These are invaluable and gave me a different perspective on the work force. I loved this quote: “Slow down. Take your time and focus on the journey, not the destination.” –Rick Whitted At the end of each chapter of Part Two there are “Reflections” questions to help you think further on what you just read. There are also podcasts and a career assessment the reader can do to help them through the process. I highly recommend anyone in the workforce to read this book. I give it four stars. It’s one book you can take to your lunch room and share! **Book has been provided courtesy of The Blog Spot for an honest review.
