Jane Horan Publishes New Book “Now It’s Clear The Career You Own”

Jane Horan, business strategy and cross-cultural leadership expert publishes new book called “Now It’s Clear The Career You Own”

In her new book, Dr. Horan utilizes a mix of insights from business, psychology, philosophy, poetry, and leadership research to answer questions pertaining to seeking meaning and purpose in career and the workplace.

Now It’s Clear answers these questions by taking you on your own journey through the past to become acquainted with the present, in order to make decisions about your future. This book will set you on a path of discovery to find purpose, uncover strengths, be comfortable with doubt, navigate resistance, build a network of support and share your story at any stage in your career.

Based on her work and research of over twenty-five years, Jane Horan has had the opportunity to listen to stories across cultures, industries and levels, from those transitioning into leadership to returning to work or in-between jobs. By connecting the dots from such stories, Horan shows us the visible patterns and themes in order to find purpose at work, every day.
