Join us for our July Human Capital Exchange Book Discussion, featuring Jane Horan, author of the new book, I Wish I Had Known That Earlier in My Career. In addition to serving as a Senior Fellow for Human Capital at The Conference Board, Jane is also the founder at the Horan Group, which offers consulting in leadership and talent management, positive politics, and bias awareness for Fortune 500 organizations, academic institutions and NGOs. Prior to starting her own consulting firm, Jane was Director of Management and Organizational Development for Kraft Foods and Executive Director of Organizational Development for The Walt Disney Company in the Asia Pacific Region.

Jane’s book offers a refreshing new approach to workplace politics, providing highly effective and easily applicable advice that will help take readers to the next level in their careers. Using specific case studies which examine corporate politics and the barriers many managers face in their efforts to reach the top, I Wish I Had Known That Earlier in My Career guides readers on how to move up within their current organizations by learning to more thoroughly understand corporate politics and embrace opportunities that help one achieve both personal and company-wide career satisfaction.

David Learmond, Senior Fellow in Human Capital at The Conference Board, will moderate this important discussion for anyone seeking to move forward in their professional life.
