There's no such thing as a pre-set path to career success. Following the footsteps of others can only get you so far - and for women, there are often additional obstacles. But what if you could design your own path to your career goals? What if you could Make Your Own Map?

Based on material from the popular Women Transforming Leadership course from Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, Make Your Own Map will help you develop a resilient and aspirational strategy for your career - whatever your starting point.

Effective methods of strategic planning have been tried and tested in the corporate business world, and this book shows you how to repurpose those methods for yourself, even if you're not in the corporate world. Packed with strategic tools and practical exercises, this book will help you:
-Assess and define your career goals
-Make a plan
-Implement your plan to find the work that fits your needs, your skills, and your direction.

With your best career as the goal, this book will help you forge your own path and Make Your Own Map.

Make Your Own Map is an absolute gift - to yourself, to your best friends, to your mentees. It is the guide I've being searching for when trying to help others define their journey and their destination. Kathryn Bishop's application of corporate strategy at an individual level not only facilitates an effective, adaptable and practicable strategy for you, it also details the real-world implementation and experimentation necessary to realise your strategic purpose. Applicable to all, but mindful of the particular work-home challenges women may face during the evolution of their career, this is a guide to read with relish - and revisit!
