The conclusion initially reiterates what was said right at the start: that the book is not a panacea for any career-related ills. What it is, says the author, is an attempt to bring together personal and external experience to provide a toolkit that will help people make more proactive career decisions and more effective changes. A book that will prevent executives from getting stuck or going stale. In a bid to align with the practical and practicable aims of the book, the conclusion is brief and finishes with 10 lessons to take away that encapsulate the key points from the chapters that have come before.
