This is for you if:
- You have already commenced your career
- You have worked for no more than ten years (if you have, What Really Matters For Aspiring Leaders! is coming soon)
- You are technically good in your field of expertise
- You would like to accelerate the speed of your career progression
- You take responsibility for your own personal and professional development
Imagine if you had a simple 15 point checklist of the skills and practices that, when mastered, would accelerate the speed of your career progression … for example knowing how to capture stories that reflect the employability skills that you have mastered, having a deep and clear understanding of your personal values, knowing how, in practice your personal values align with your organisation’s values, knowing how to stop yourself from jumping to conclusions and better managing your internal workplace communication…and much, much more.
That’s what this book will teach you.
“Wow! This book is jam packed with useful and practical strategies for young professionals wanting to take the next step up in their careers. In a time where young professionals are constantly asking for more mentoring and training, this book is the perfect do-it-yourself manual to improve your employability.”
What’s so great about accelerating the progress of your career?
Still not convinced that learning how to accelerate your career would be useful for you? Here are 11 reasons:
- Work smarter, not harder
- Achieve the life balance you desire
- Enhance your personal brand in a way that genuinely reflects who you are
- Open the door to opportunities that others simply won’t see
- Have a clear compass to guide your behaviour when organisational dilemmas arise
- Be true to the organisation
- Be an example of the culture the organisation is striving to create
- Establish relationships with more senior people within your organisation or industry
- Become known for being ‘level headed’ when everyone else is losing theirs
- Earn more money, faster
- Establish a reputation for high quality execution – nothing accelerates your career faster!
On a personal note I have to say that mastering these skills and practices have had a massive impact on my career and they have enabled me to live the lifestyle I desire. And I want to share these simple yet effective practices with you and I think you’ll discover just how powerful they are too, especially when all 15 practices are being executed simultaneously.
“This book is the definitive tool for young professionals with loads of expert knowledge who need to quickly develop high-level employability skills. It can also be used by managers and HR professionals for induction of their graduate recruits, or young at heart professionals willing to adjust to the contemporary workplace. If you want to succeed in the 21st century as a high-performing individual I recommend you read this book.”

“Gary Ryan has written a book which caters for those of us who are lifelong learners and hungry for self improvement. Gary has a straightforward philosophy, intermingled with stories from his own life and theoretical underpinnings, that we are ultimately responsible to demonstrate leadership traits, irrespective of the positions we hold in our careers and with our families.”

To help you get a feel for the book, I’ve got two PDF sample downloads for you here:
That sample chapter is one of my favourite – and most useful – chapters in the book, because it shows you how important it is to have mentors in your life, and how to go about finding and recruiting them.
And this is not like any other product on career progression.
Why? Because I’ve been there and done that. I know what works and what doesn’t work. I’ve had extraordinary success in progressing my own career from being a labourer, a cleaner, to a gymnasium manager, to a teacher, to a senior executive to an entrepreneur and a sought after facilitator, educator, mentor, coach, speaker, company director and, of course, author! And more importantly, I’ve helped thousands of people develop the various practices identified in this book.
So for the first time I have been able to collect and place the 15 most important lessons from this journey in one place. But wait, it’s not just the book that I have created …
I’ve been building up to this for years:
Since 1994 I been mastering my own skills in both developing myself and those people with whom I worked. My first serious job was as a manager, mostly of people much older than myself. At the young age of 24 I had to quickly learn how to the people who reported to me to be the best that they could be and I am proud to say that all those people have taken their careers in the direction they desired.
My work at Australian universities has led me to work with thousands of international students from all over the world. This has taught me that while we do have many cultural differences, we also have many common desires. Two such desires are:
- The desire to be successful in whatever terms we personally define success; and
- To have balance in our lives.
The 15 practices that I have selected have been chosen for these very reasons. Once mastered these practices will enable you to have the career success and life balance that you desire.
My 16 years of personal and professional development experience has enabled me to master how to both design and facilitate workshops. I am able to take relevant theory and turn it into usable and practical steps to enable people from all cultures to master the skills necessary for success.
So what I’m saying is I’m sharing all this real-life experience with you. Which means there is no fluff. Just the answers you want to know. This really is a short cut to accelerating your career.
What is a resource like this worth?
Mastering the practices outlined in this book have seen me multiply my income many times over. More importantly they have enabled me to live the life I desire. I want you to be able to do that too.
Of course I can’t guarantee how much you will accelerate your career, because it really does depend on how serious you are about mastering these practices.
