Hi, this is James Gray

Thank you for choosing this self-directed course to learn effective strategies and techniques that I proved at Microsoft and have applied throughout my career. It represents a culmination of my work and passion since 2006. It started as a Word document to capture the words behind the career strategy workshops that I ran at Microsoft. I wanted a way to capture what I learned throughout my career to share with my colleagues and kids to ideally save them time. I hope you find this course valuable and I look forward to hearing your feedback that you can share in each course lecture.

I love meeting and helping interesting people by sharing my experiences or connecting them with people in my LinkedIn network. Please reach out through this course, on LinkedIn, or email at [email protected].
