<p>There are countless career development books out there, but how many of them really understand the challenges faced by underrepresented groups? We, just like everyone else, depend on our own hard work to get ahead, but putting that effort to the best possible use sometimes means navigating challenging workplace cultures—and, ultimately, navigating our own identities as professionals. No one is going to rush in and show us how to fulfill our own potential—we need self-reflection and communication skills, along with the courage to take responsibility for our lives! <p><i>The Power of Choice: Embracing Efficacy to Drive Your Career</i> is for those ready to embrace responsibility for their own outcomes and learn how to make the most of their efforts. Written by a professional of color who has been there, done that, this book is a collection of insights and strategies that represent decades of hard-earned work wisdom. Experience is the most valuable teacher, and there's no way to achieve career greatness without putting in the time. This book adds valuable mentorship that will help readers ensure that they're on the right track and show them how to course correct when necessary. <p>In <i>The Power of Choice</i>, Michael Hyter covers the conceptual foundation, broad strategy, and action steps that add up to <i>efficacy</i>—the skill of leveraging our decisions and efforts to maximize development and avoid settling for less. Readers will learn how to live up to their potential by: <ul> <li>Developing a strong sense of self-confidence</li> <li>Building and leveraging relationship skills</li> <li>Learning to influence others for better results</li> <li>Making an impact and overcoming low expectations</li> </ul> <p>In today's reality, success is a choice. If we're courageous enough to work hard, build our skills, and use our time wisely, we can overcome the obstacles we face and rise to great heights as we walk our chosen career paths.
