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.

Strategize to Win is a must read / listen!!!

I loved it!! Listening to Carla Harris share her pearls of wisdom on how to strategize one's career and take responsibility for one's career path was very inspiring. It was like having my very own executive coach giving me play by play tips on how to successfully advance in my career journey!!

The career coach you always wanted!

Carla does it again!!! If you’ve ever wondered how to navigate the hills and valleys of your career journey or ever felt like you wish you had someone to give you career advice, this book is for you!
I read Expect To Win last year and was blown away by the positive results I got after applying Carla’s pearls of wisdom. I’ve increased both my performance and relationship currency at work and I can attribute this to her advice and nuggets of wisdom.
I love that she speaks with authenticity and leaves no corner unturned when it comes to everyday career issues that we face.
Read this book and if you don’t have the time, — listen to the book on audible! I actually have the hard copy but I’m happy I got it on audible because it allowed me to hear the examples directly from her (she gives examples of what and how to say things when faced with difficulties at work).

In conclusion— get the book! You won’t be disappointed! I can’t wait to read whatever she comes up with next!
