Ruth Glover's background includes extensive work with people in career transitions. She teaches people how to find new careers and jobs through her work as an outplacement consultant and recruiter. When she saw a need for role models for people in transition, she began the task of writing MORE than a Paycheck: Inspiration and Tools for Career Change. The book contains 20 stories about real people who have moved their careers in various ways - up, down and over.
Much to her surprise in interviewing people for the book, the individuals fell into three groups with their success and struggles: People, Power and Persistence.
Individuals who influence your career decisions
|Power:||Spiritual guidance and beliefs in a High Power|
|Persistence:||Belief in yourself with self-motivation|
We are all a mixture of people, power and persistence. In the book, you see where the motivation arises in each of the stories. She urges you to use the examples of others to move toward a more rewarding career. The last section of the book provides a look at tools to help you build the path to the next step in your career.
