The Harvard Business Review Paperback Series is designed to bring today's managers and professionals the fundamental information they need to stay competitive in a fast-moving world. From the preeminent thinkers whose work has defined an entire field to the rising stars who will redefine the way we think about business, here are the leading minds and landmark ideas that have established the Harvard Business Review as required reading for ambitious businesspeople in organizations around the globe. Harvard Business Review on Finding & Keeping the Best People is a collection of cutting-edge articles that will help organizations understand how best to hire and retain their top employees in today's fiercely competitive job market. The articles provide the reader with perspectives not only on how to hire and retain people, but also why employees leave and how to utilize their skills even after they're gone. About The Author Herminia Ibarra (Shortlisted: 2011 Thinkers50 Leadership Award) is the Cora chaired professor of leadership and learning, and professor of organizational behavior at INSEAD. Her work focuses on professional and leadership development including collaborative leadership, identity, women's careers and career transition. In her 2003 book Working Identity: Unconventional Strategies for Reinventing Your Career Ibarra offers an alternative view of careers and career advice. Successful careers are not a linear progression, she says, moving inexorably towards management seniority and career satisfaction. Rather than waiting for the perfect career to come along, we need to experiment and try on different careers for size. Changing to a more enjoyable career entails a three-part process, she suggests, involving experimentation with professional activities, building social networks and honing the story about who you are and what you want to do. Ibarra set her sights on a career in academia early on. In an interview with the Financial Times, she admits to dreaming of a career as an organizational behavior professor as a 13-year-old.
