Over 11,000,000 copies sold internationally.


In ‘Career Detection, Finding and Managing your career,’ Brian introduces us to his Career Detection model, a brilliantly effective process to guide us in working with clients wanting to find or manager their career.  The book is filled  with many great exercises to identify skills and expertise, find  career drivers and learn how to research careers. Brian’s Book is an  excellent resource for coaches and for anyone who wants to be their own career coach or detective.  I highly recommend it.

Denise Ruane, Coach. May 2018  (Denise was one of my students on the IMI Executive Coaching Course in 2017). 


What he does do is ask questions.
Lots of questions. Questions of such volume and piercing nature they’d probably prompt Torquemada to raise an eyebrow:  He’s in your corner but he ain’t your mammy. He’s already got a job he loves. You’re the one that wants a new one. So you’re going to have to talk to him straight, If you do there’s a very good chance you’re going to get a job you love too.
