Publisher's Summary

The Wall Street powerhouse and author of Expect to Win offers a new way to conceptualize career strategies and gives us proven tools for successful change.

Whether we're starting out, striving toward a promotion, or looking for a new opportunity, the working world isn’t what it used to be. Wall Street veteran Carla Harris knows this, and in Strategize to Win she gives listeners the tools they need to get started; get "unstuck" from bad situations; redirect momentum; and position themselves to manage their careers no matter the environment. With her trademark galvanizing advice, Harris identifies and clarifies issues that are often murky, offering lessons on: Identifying and making the most of your work profile (are you a Good Soldier? a Leader? an Arguer?); preparing for a career change without going back to school or taking a step down: honing three essential skills industry leaders possess (and how to get them); tuning into unspoken cues; and thriving through change. Introducing a new way of planning one’s career in five-year units, Strategize to Win distills battle-tested and step-by-step tools that Carla has used to launch and sustain her own successful career and help others move forward, recover from setbacks, and position themselves for success.

The advice gets stronger with each chapter!!

I am not at the beginning of a career but still love solid advice on professional growth. This book is great for people starting new careers, mid career shifts, those transitioning to different opportunities and entrepreneurs regarding winning business by understanding needs. I was a little turned off when I first started the book because that portion is geared towards people in the very early stages of career development. However "Carla's pearls" kept coming into my lane touching where I am today and where I am heading. The book has something for everyone. We read this in our book club and I recommend it.

Just What I Needed!

This book was the GPS I needed to navigate my career to the next level. Unfortunately I do not have a sponsor or mentor to leverage his/her social/political capital on my behalf, but I have an exceptional work history and education and now I have Carla Harris! Thank you Carla, through your books you have become my most valued mentor whom I've not met.

Phenominal material

This book has brought to light so many things that I need to reexamine and re-strategize concerning my career. I highly recommend this book especially chapters 5 & 6, I would say start there and if you like go back and read the whole book.
