We can't get to exciting new places without knowing where we want to be, and how to get there. Moving from being a subject matter expert into leadership is an exciting journey, but it is fraught with obstacles. We each need a map for our own personal journey, that helps us honestly identify challenges, including those we create for ourselves, and which equips us to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Brian helped me make brave decisions to embark on my big life changes. He asks all the right questions and his years of experience and buckets of wisdom are reflected in this great book. It will help you to work out how to map your own journey, to get there and also to identify how to make a success of your career when it reaches its next destination. Read it!
