Instead of immediately focusing on what to do, the first section of the book (‘Principles’) asks detailed, probing questions about you. Knowing yourself and what makes you tick is the first step to getting the career you want. Using the unique ‘Ego Styles Theory’, which the author has used to great success with her own clients, the book can identify the ways in which you could be blocking your own success in life and career.
