Mind Flip is a new must-read career manual for anyone looking to change jobs, achieve promotion or find more fulfilling work. Written for all career stages from Graduate to Granddad, including Mum Returners, over 50s, women in business and the new self-employed, it is the culmination of Zena's many years of working in recruitment and career coaching.
Mind Flipping is to flip your focus away from yourself and instead look outwards - on to the value you add and the problems you, uniquely, can solve for other people.
Graham Norton believes that this philosophy will help you transform the way you look at your career - for ever! The book provides you with everything you need to fire up your career, including a foreword by the DeeDee Doke, Editor of Recruiter Magazine, on the future of recruitment and talent management.
The first part Figure It Out will help you figure out the unique value you provide. Why should someone hire you, or use your services? The second part Crack On gives you the practical tools and techniques to launch your job search, in the quickest and most straightforward way, to find a new job, gain promotion or find the freelance work you want. The third section Just For You is if you need extra help to get you to where you want to be (as a freelancer, returner, working Mum, over 50s, graduate or disabled job seeker). The final part Fulfill It helps you to keep going, to maintain your network, keep raising the bar on your aspirations and achieve the ambitions you previously thought were impossible; or maybe you didn't know you had. It even includes a chapter on when things can go wrong - such as working for a Narcissistic Boss - and what to do about them.

'It is refreshing to see a career book that unpicks the bias in organisations - and in our own heads - that stop us from fulfilling our dreams. Whether you're facing the glass ceiling or the class ceiling, this book helps you understand how to break through it, and get on.' - Mary Creagh MP
'If you take your career seriously, this is the only book you need to read. Zena Everett has more knowledge, experience and insight as to how recruiters work and corporates hire than anyone I know.' - Ann Swain, CEO, Association of Professional Staffing Companies
'Zena Everett is a fresh and original voice in the careers field.' - John Lees, author of How to Get a Job You Love
'Zena's book stands out from the field and is not simply another self-help book. Great advice here on how to request flexible working, manage the topic of children at interviews (the baby elephant in the room) and get what you want. Work isn't about hours or location any more; it's about achieving objectives. Mind Flip will make you stronger and help you achieve your personal career goals.' - Gill Stewart, Managing Director, Capability Jane
