Pressestimmen

I wish that I could have had this book in my hands when I worked through my own unexpected career transition ten years ago. My humble experience surely resonates with Diane's wisdom from her own highly developed spiritual intelligence (SI). I recommend this book to those who are willing to reflect and learn from their own experience in tough times. Life is good only if we are able to see the life larger than our own. --Zenglo Chen, Ph.D., Management Psychologist, Motorola

Work is a stabilizing structure in our lives. When it is gone, we can spiral out of control. Diane Wilson respectfully shares the stories of loss and emergence with insightful markers that normalize both the journey and the humanity of an experience most of us will face. This is a great tool for people in transition and those who help them through the process. --Peg Hendershot, Director, Career Vision, a division of The Ball Foundation

Wilson’s book, Back in Control, deals with the emotional side of job hunting, and, therefore, fills a real hole in the existing literature. In an excellent treatment of the issue of emotional responses to career change, Diane Wilson guides individuals through the process of taking control of their careers and of career transitions. Her book will aid self-awareness by showing people that they are not alone in experiencing a wide range of confusing emotions when faced with career moves. --Dennis Doverspike, Ph.D., author of The Difficult Hire

Wilson’s Back In Control will help readers gain the knowledge and strength needed to manage their career transitions successfully, based on solid content and the real life experiences of career transitioners. --Dr. David Helfand, author of Career Change: Everything You Need to Know to Meet New Challenges and Take Control of Your Career

Back in Control is right on the money with sound advice on behavioral styles. The content is insightful and presented in an engaging manner. I highly recommend this book if you want to learn how to communicate effectively with potential employers who may have different styles than your own. --Jack Cullen, author of The Agile Manager

This book offers something different from the typical job search book—hope. Reading it is like having an ally in your corner—a source of support, comfort, fresh perspectives, and practical wisdom. I recommend it to anyone who is struggling with the frustrations of a career transition. Rochelle Kopp, author of The Rice-Paper Ceiling: Breaking Through Japanese Corporate Culture

I enjoy Wilson’s personal candor and the statements from her clients. This book is filled with life-giving advice based on many years of coaching. --Dr. Tom Murray, Former Executive Director, Career Transitions Center of Chicago

Job transition has the power to crack us wide open and send us reeling. Rather than beginning with what we should do, Back in Control starts with where we are. Its gift is helping us to become aware of what is going on within us and to accept it as a departure point on a path of engagement and empowerment. --Al Gustafson, Cross Roads Center

Diane Wilson's book, based on her extensive experience, provides informed and compassionate guidance for the difficult transitions that many face in the course of their careers. --Robert B.Slaney, Head of Department of Counselor Education, Counseling Psychology, and Rehabilitation Services, Penn State University

Ms. Wilson has done a wonderful service for anyone experiencing career transition. She shares her wisdom on how to effectively manage the variety of challenges that accompany career change in a refreshingly straightforward and practical way. As a career coach, I found her stories, insights, and strategies to be right on target with what I focus on with my own clients. This book is a must read for anyone interested in optimizing their success and effectiveness with career change. --Albert D. Spicer, Psy.D., Chicago Coach Federation

Diane Grimard Wilson provides sound, practical advice to help manage the emotional side of career transition, drawing from a wide range of experiences and learning models. You will find opportunities to convert uncertainty and fear into growth and positive change. --Jeffrey Sugerman, President & CEO, Inscape Publishing

This book is a rare treasure in that it goes beneath the surface to grapple with the real psychological and social effects of unemployment. Diane Wilson provides a "roadmap” of the emotional terrain one is likely to encounter in successfully navigating a career transition. Awareness, acceptance, and action—her three pronged approach helps us to transcend counter-productive knee-jerk reactions and find our way safely to the other shore. --Laura Wimbish, Ph.D., Principal, Satori Consulting

Diane brings a wonderful new perspective to transition. I suspect this is the ONLY book on this topic that includes a discussion of Feng Shui and Focus! Since reading it, I have changed my office and feel totally refreshed. Diane asks much of her readers, however, when in transition, life holds great rewards for those willing to make the right investment of time and resources. --Roger Breisch, Founder, Midwest Organizational Learning Network

Back in Control eloquently highlights the human vulnerabilities and emotional upheavals that accompany job loss and poignantly presents the candid reflections of 21st century job seekers in transition. The author combines career acumen with counseling and coaching expertise to offer a fresh, enlightened, holistic approach to support all who are navigating—or wishing to better navigate—life's inevitable career transitions --Julie A. Sells, Assistant Director, Career Center, Division of Enrollment Management, DePaul University

Back in Control is a real how to—a powerful toolbox for either personal or professional transitions. Diane Wilson is a highly emotionally intelligent, warm, and compassionate writer—her real-life stories are inviting and recognizable. I learned from this book and others can too! --Janelle Dimitriou, Midwest Workplace Solutions Manager, KPMG

An inspirational primer for those seeking meaning in their lives and careers. Ms. Wilson does an outstanding job of helping the reader discover one's own path while encouraging life balance. --Gary S. Cohen, Co-President, Employee Resource Systems

Increasingly, people are going through career changes in their lives. They start out in one direction and elect to go in a new one. Or they are fired from a position and find employment in a new field. Work is closely tied to our emotional well-being and disruptions can cause great distress. Back in Control: How to Stay Sane, Productive and Inspired in Your Career Transition by Diane Grimard Wilson will help avoid the feelings of depression, confusion, and stress that frequently accompany this transition. It contains counsel and comfort for anyone working their way through change, picking up where most “how-to” books leave off. --Bookviews.com

Back in Control is a powerful book for not only people in job transition and contemplating career changes; it is full of insightful ways to live a life you love. --John H. Bishop, Certified HeartMath Coach

Synopsis

Everyone goes through a career change at least once in their life and most people switch careers several times. This transitional time often causes people to feel stuck, depressed, dejected, confused, alone, and stressed. This book contains counsel and comfort for people working through these changes, turning an unconstructive and emotionally damaging experience into a personally enriching and beneficial one. The book picks up where the 'how to' manuals leave off. Countless career books will help readers craft a winning resume, use the Internet and other resources, or prepare for the all-important interview. Wilson's book helps readers manage something even more difficult: themselves. It talks about the stuff that most of us want to know about from others but are seldom in a position to ask. It features personal reflections collected from people going through career changes -- real-life experiences described in rich and candid detail.

A Guide to Taking Control 15. Juni 2004
Von Dennis Doverspike - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In life we are often presented with challenges. We can take control of those challenges or we can let those challenges control our minds and emotions. In this era of rapidly changing job and work environments, many people find themselves faced with job losses or underemployment. In an excellent treatment of the issue of emotional responses to career change, Diane Wilson guides individuals through the process of taking control of their careers and of career transitions. Diane's book, Back in Control, deals with the emotional side of job hunting, and, therefore, fills a real hole in the existing literature. Diane's book will aid self-awareness by showing people that they are not alone in experience a wide range of confusing emotions when faced with career moves. But she goes beyond just illustrating the problems; she also offers a variety of potential solutions to the problems encountered in career transitions.

Helpful guide during job transition 24. Februar 2009
Von Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In my 15 year professional corporate career, I have gone through enough job transitions to understand that reading career development books is part of life and re-enforcement of the skills I fortunately already have. I came across this book in my library. I liked it a lot and book was given to me as a gift a couple of years back. Author is from Chicago and many of the "cases" she discusses in the book are local Chicago residents going through a job transition.

It does not matter if your job transition is voluntary or involuntary. The effort of finding the next job (or a career) and emotional stress during the search is nevertheless the same. Author explains that loosing a job is a grieving process and one goes through the same stages of grief as if your dear friend, or a family member died. Additionally, the job search process has three phases. I have learned a new trick about four basic types of personalities and how to spot them during interview.

This author will not give you examples of what questions to ask during the interview, but she will teach you how to learn about yourself, understand your strenghts and weaknesses and play them in the game of job search. She also has a recommendaton on how to de-stress: music therapy, journaling, workout, yoga and meditation. She also believes that order of one's surroundings is important and de-cluttering space frees oneself with more personal freedom to venture into the unknown.

Author apparently is an Oprah fan (which I am not) and likes some of the general public best sellers - which I do not share with her. But the unique thing about this book is that it is sincere in desire to help people with the job transition and explores every aspect of life, psyche and personality so that individual can conquer them when it is the most important: during job interview, stressful situations at work, or at home and during any other changes in life that are significant.

Easy read. Good reference materials recommendations in the back of the book.
Great Book 16. April 2014
Von Christine L. Wodke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Almost everyone will find themselves unemployed at some time in their working life. That can be the time when you think about a career transition. One of the great things about this book is it walks you through the emotional side of career loss into a new job. Also talks about the barreris you might put up and how to find the power to get past them.
