Mwangi Wanjumbiabout this book: Career Dynamics in the 21st Century helps readers to align their careers with their intellectual talents or inborn abilities so that they can unleash their full performance potential.
The benefits of the book: Many times, most people discover their passions by chance. Career Dynamics in the 21st Century helps readers to understand how to precisely uncover their passions and avoid common career pitfalls. That leads to continued as well as sustainable success without wasting time and efforts pursuing wrong degrees for example. It also helps in determining how to attract the deserving rewards from personalized perspectives.
Inspiration of writing the book: In 2014, I was quite disturbed upon learning that more than 50% of the graduates in our country (and the East African Region) were either unemployed or unemployable. Further, I had during my training programs realized that most people including learning institutions are guided by the dynamics of the information/knowledge era of the 20th Century which are now largely overtaken by the dynamics of a highly competitive 21st Century. I felt the need of helping readers to smoothly embrace the dynamics in the 21st Century.
Target Readers: Students, parents, teachers and professionals. All are involved in career choices and aligning personal development strategy. In any case, who doesn't want to realize his/her full potential?
How long did it take to write it?
I had over the years variously shared some of the ideas in my book through published articles. I had also conceptualized a highly effective training program in line with the principles of the book. I had also taken my three children through the principles of the book. (The one who had finished school had no problem becoming a passionate and effective lawyer. The follower twins were 4 years younger and became financially independent when pursuing their 2nd year of university education). It was therefore easy to collate and enrich the ideas and experiences into a book within a span of two months.
How did you come up with the title? I considered the general challenge that I was addressing.
Why did you choose this cover? On the front page, I wanted to portray the fact that the book was actually a training solution. On the back page, I needed to communicate one of my inspirations for writing.
What was the hardest part of writing your book? Aligning the theme so that it could flow from the beginning to the end.
Did you do research for your book? The ideas shared were based on practical experiences encountered during training sessions. I was also able to integrate them with ideas from other authors who I have quoted in the book
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Everything that I have been writing through my articles is important and could form part of my future books.
