Remember back to your first few days in a new job. Whether you were an experienced professional or new to the workforce, you quickly discovered that the job description that explained your role was quite different from the reality you faced. NobodyMoreRemember back to your first few days in a new job. Whether you were an experienced professional or new to the workforce, you quickly discovered that the job description that explained your role was quite different from the reality you faced.

Nobody told you this, but the day you were hired you actually accepted two jobs. The first was the position you interviewed for, including the title and all of the responsibilities outlined on paper. The second job-within-the-job included the unspoken work that required you to manage constant change, effectively collaborate with difficult people, navigate confusing workplace politics, and get your best work done in an environment of shrinking resources and increasing demands.

For both managers and employees, this is the double-reality of work.In todays competitive landscape, standing out, getting ahead of the change curve, and staying relevant at work comes from the ability to go beyond your job description and continuously improve your learning and performance as you confront the hidden demands of work.

These two factors – the need for continuous learning and performance and the presence of performance barriers – form what author Jesse Sostrin calls the hidden curriculum of work.When we face the hidden curriculum of work without a plan we often fail to contribute our best effort, we lose sight of the things that inspire us, and we disengage. Beyond the Job Description can help you translate your frustrations at work into useful insights that boost your learning and performance while increasing the value of your contributions to the team and organization.The book provides research-driven insights, diagnostic tools, and stories of employees and leaders who have managed to turn their greatest challenges at work into opportunities for breakthrough performance.

It is no longer an option to simply ignore the hidden curriculum of work. Beyond the Job Description translates the world of work and leads readers on a critical path to:• Discover the mutual agenda where your individual values and aspirations align with the needs of the team and the goals of your organization-• Understand your true priorities and focus on the vital purpose and value-added contributions that can help you stand out and stay ahead of the change curve-• Establish a system to identify hidden challenges that undermine your success on the job and learn to transform those barriers into opportunities for improved learning and performance- and• Develop a clear vision and plan to achieve the working life you want.
