These skills include all aspects of the work setting - completing projects and commitments as promised, showing up to work on time, being kind to others, listening well, and solving problems in a timely, fair, and effective manner.

Written by three career experts, An Intelligent Career is a playbook for the modern knowledge worker, providing a complete guide that will allow workers to take a composite, dynamic view of a life´s work in the 21st century. ´´Knowledge work´´ - the kind of work where one thinks for a living - is fundamental in today´s economy. It is the basis for long-term success in the global economy and it drives the collective brainpower through which goods and services are delivered. And today, knowledge work requires much more than a college degree: it means understanding the changing nature of work and employment, and the processes through which knowledge is generated, transferred, and applied. It means understanding new career possibilities, more dynamic work arrangements, and the growing demand for knowledge work around the globe. It means navigating work life with an authenticity that replaces any straightforward loyalty to a single employer, and instead calls for better understanding of the self, collaborators, clients, and customers. An Intelligent Career provides clear guidance on how to take charge of your own destiny, seek continuous learning, collaborate with others, recognize and act on fresh opportunities, determine when it is time to move on, and much more. Ultimately, the goal of this audiobook is to help knowledge workers from architects to lawyers learn to work on their own terms and to assume ownership of work and career. 1. Language: English.
