Rise: 3 Practical Steps for Advancing Your Career, Standing Out as a Leader, and Liking Your Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A successful Silicon Valley executive and consultant shares proven advice and straight-shooting tips for getting ahead, becoming a respected leader, and enjoying a healthy work-life balance.

Patty Azzarello became the youngest general manager at Hewlett-Packard at age 33, ran a $1 billion software business at 35, and became a CEO at 38—all without turning into a self-centered, miserable jerk. Now a private business consultant, Patty shares her hard-won secrets to succeeding at work without losing your sanity in three steps: DO BETTER (discover the vital difference between working hard and succeeding, deal with frustrating obstacles and stupid people); LOOK BETTER (be visible but not annoying, build your credibility with the people who can help—or blacklist—you); and CONNECT BETTER (develop your network without being political). Patty’s no-nonsense tone and anecdotes will help managers and up-and-comers alike improve their work lives and career trajectories while still living well.

Review:

"Throughout her successful career, Silicon Valley executive and management consulting guru Azzarello, former general manager at Hewlett Packard, has observed the behavior of successful people, in particular, the way they broke through the limitations of how their jobs were defined. She offers an encouraging but flabby guide to career advancement, and bases her approach for success on her observations from the field. She exhorts readers to follow a three-step program — do better, look better, and connect better — and above all, to take responsibility and thrive. Though solid, her advice covers well-trodden ground: build credibility with those who can help you, improve your personal brand, get support, be a mentor, and build visibility. Azzarello sets her sights high, seeking to reach people at every stage of their careers, but the book suffers from a message that is too broad and general. Though there are plentiful sound bites, readers looking for substantive help would be better off elsewhere." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
