working-identitysurfCareer transition is much more than wanting a new job, a different company to work for, or becoming self-employed. It is a much deeper journey, where we play with possible selves, design and interact with new networks of people, and make sense of what we experience and feel.

As in all journeys, a supportive and reliable companion can make all the difference.

Working Identity, Herminia Ibarra’s book, beautifully fulfills this role. The book combines solid and careful research with insightful real-life stories, and it sheds light on the much-needed process of doing and experimenting that will finally led to the answers we are looking for.
