In today's fast-paced world, organisations and the people who work there are going through rapid change. Most successful leaders are able to make the most of these dynamic environments. They understand themselves, understand others and understand how to manage and motivate behavioural change. It is through these core skills that they are able to prosper through change, and gather the influence they need to be successful. These skills are relevant for everyone - regardless of their role or hierarchical position.

However, Step Up has been written specifically for people who are more technically focused, but are at that stage in their career where they know they need to change if they want to advance. They can be accountants, financial planners, risk management experts, financial controllers, engineers, scientists or even doctors. They are people who associate with their technical craft first, even though they may now be in a leadership role. Author, and change management expert, Michelle Gibbings believes that there are skills, practices and techniques that individuals, teams and organisations can apply to make change work. She shares these in her new book.

WRITE A REVIEW

Accessible and pragmatic guide for the modern career

5

Loved the pragmatic approach to describing what being successful is all about in the modern-day workplace. I feel that this is the sort of book I'll come back to over time to reflect on the pearls of wisdom and give myself the confidence to carve out a career that is fundamentally consistent with my personal values.

Looking for techiques to build your personal influence

4

This book is built on the premise that you need to understand yourself in order to be able to 'Step Up', offering analytics to enable this understanding and then offering techniques to effect personal change. Michelle brings her authentic self to writing this book and it resonates with the integrity which is her personal stamp. This leads to another message throughout the book that change without integrity is worthless.

User friendly guide to building personal influence

5

This book provided me with new ways to reflect on my old behaviors and motivated me to step out side those practices to try something new. It reinforced for me that learning is constant and acceptance of the risk of making a mistake is is critical to further developing influence. I particularly liked the section on crafting my impact as it provided practical tips that will improve all of my future communications.
