I view writing as the process by which we improve our thinking - writing is the process that helps me to figure things out.

Before You Step Into The Office

How Focusing on Leadership Early Can Set the Stage for Career Success

In an age where leadership development often comes too late, a new book has emerged that challenges the norms and sets a new paradigm. Before You Step into the Office by Robert Yeo, is a manifesto for early career leadership inspired by his two university-aged children stepping onto the career ladder.


If you’re also making your first forays into the world of work:


  • Are you investing in yourself and creating an edge?

  • What’s your oxygen?

  • What do you want people to think of when they hear your name?

  • Are you putting more energy into the room than you’re taking out?

  • What level of initiative do you feel comfortable operating at?

Before You Step into the Office challenges the assumptions of “follow your passion” and “work harder” through a series of insightful principles that combine coaching insights and research with practical wisdom. It objectively examines the modern professional landscape that new entrants like you are facing, while offering a toolkit for navigating and thriving within it. It inspires you, as an initial-stage career professional, to redefine your approach to leadership early in your career.

If you’re stepping into the professional world, this book is a roadmap of practical tips to help you avoid forming bad habits and feeling lost when challenges arise – tilting the odds in your favour for career success.
