Success means different things to different people, yet there are essential key skills and knowledge that will help you to achieve your goals, whatever they are - be it progressing in your career, getting a pay rise, setting up your own business or negotiating Christmas dinner arrangements with your in-laws. This Book Will Make You Successful is a straight-talking and practical guide to getting what you want out of life. Using extensive research, plus interviews with professionals across all fields of expertise, Jo Usmar delivers strategies for becoming successful in both your work and your day-to-day life. This little book covers everything from networking, conflict resolution, stress management, productivity and being more persuasive, to not feeling like a fraud and moving on from setbacks. Prepare to feel both motivated and motivational, confident, productive and courageous. So many other books on 'success' confine themselves to target-hitting and positive thinking. This is broader, hugely useful, and entertaining to read. Chapters include: goal-setting exercises, anti-procrastination techniques, stress management, persuasion strategies, negotiation tips, mistake management, productivity tools, creativity boosters, work-life balance, managing difficult conversations (and difficult people).

The experience of an untenured faculty member is highly dependent on the quality of the mentoring they receive. This mentoring may come from a number of different sources, and the concept of developing a constellation of mentors is highly recommended, but a mentoring relationship that is guided by the mentee's needs will be the most productive. Often, however, the mentee does not know their own needs, what questions to ask, and what topics they should discuss with a mentor. This book provides a guide to the mentoring process for untenured faculty. Perspectives are provided and questions posed on topics ranging from establishing scholarly expertise and developing professional networks to personal health and balancing responsibilities. The questions posed are not intended for the mentee to answer in isolation, rather a junior faculty member should approach these questions throughout their untenured years with the help of their mentors. Survive and Thrive: A Guide for Untenured Faculty will help to facilitate the mentoring process and lead junior faculty to a path where they can move beyond just surviving and truly thrive in their position.
