This course provides me insight what are the strategic plan I need to focus and how to plan my career lifecycle. It helps me to rethink how results and relationships are equally important and building external network is one of the key success. I am currently going through a career transition and this course is extremely helpful.

Always have heard "it's who you know and not what you know." However, something always felt wrong about that. R*R=S: seeing it on paper (slideshow) crystallized success and is a far better way to view success.
