Book Review: Next Level Global Career Skills by Shantanu Mohanty

Next Level Global Career Skills by Shantanu Mohanty is another good book from the industry leader. His previous book, College to Cubicle is a great book for students to build the corporate ladder. However, this time, he has written this book for the corporate people. In the corporate world, not everyone gets to see the growth one wishes or anticipates. The book asserts that people lag behind because of two basic reasons: will and skill issue.

Spending time in any company doesn’t increase remuneration or promotion rank, one needs to be aptly skilled to make name in the corporate world. But most of the people also lag behind because they could not find a proper mentor or guidance initially. Well, this book is hot from someone who knows the length and breadth of the corporate landscape.

Coming to the book, it is full of insights and knowledge. However, given this, the book demands attention and time, one should not flit the pages for proper guidance. Once you read the book, you will find yourself replete with career-related skills for accelerating the growth and you may have a good grasp over will and skill gaps.

Everything covered in just 9 chapters, the book sheds light on types of managers, the difference between them and how they work. This is one instance, as you delve deep in the book you will get to know how an organization works and how its structure unfolds as per the roles and positions. Chapter 7 ‘on how to climb the corporate ladder’ is an amazing finding. Many might not know what is C-Suite? If you read the book, you will discover yourself and get to know whether you can be that C-Suite or not.

The intensity of the book is high and so does its writing is coherent. Yet the author tried to cover all information in the most simplified way. You may need to reread some parts for proper understanding. It is a good book for new to already-settled people, as who doesn’t like growth.

Writing, grammar, and other aspects are perfect. While reading it one can make notes for future reference. Overall, a brilliant book for the working people. It is not a self-help book but way beyond its genre.

Other than skills and will power, one needs to have the knowledge about a lot of aspects, then only one can grow properly in the corporate world. And this book is the right choice, it has those insights and tools that can empower you. Choice is yours?
