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.

This book was phenomenal! I first learned of Carla through a leadership series at my company. She was so inspirational I went to look for and buy her book. I then told everyone I knew that this was a good read regardless of where you are in your career. I have recommended this book to college students and those at retirement stages (and those in between). I have even purchased the book and sent it as gifts to a few people. The BEST part of the book is the sample talking points/ scenarios and Carla's pearls. The taking points/ scenarios really help you to put yourself in the situation and input your own skills. They also help you realize there was so much about your skillset that you were leaving out when "selling" yourself. Best book I've read all year. I plan to listen to this multiple times!

Six Figure Career Secrets

This is a wonderful book for every serious careerist. You won't be able to implement all the tips at once but put this lunch in the bag for when you're hungry later ;) This is something I plan to listen to at the beginning of each year when it's time to get my strategy together. I plan to be a six-figure woman in 3 years.

Fantastic follow-up

If you haven't read Expect to Win, you'll enjoy this book. But if you have, you'll absolutely maximize the benefits by adding this sequel. Carla's Pearls are worth their weight in gold. And Carla is "good people" for sure.
