This isn't some laundry list of what characteristics winners possess. This is what YOU can do to be successful at work and outside of work. It assumes you're in a job with too many demands, too little time, not enough budget/resources and management that may not always have your best interests at heart. Sound familiar? It also assumes you have a life outside of work that matters, maybe even more than your job does. Each chapter has tons of "how to" tips with great stories. Extremely pragmatic and useful. My go-to, give-away book. Read it!
Her writing style is flowing and simple to follow and her approach is very down to earth. Her personal stories are very well placed and serve the point she is making as opposed to many other books I have read where it seemed the author was more focused on self-glorification through stories.
Bottom line, this is highly recommended and I'm sure those of you who will act on just a few of the principles brought forward by the author will experience tangible results. Great job Patty!
This book contains not only career advice, but a concrete step-by-step plan to advance your career and contribute to your organization in the highest way.
If you are an employer, I recommend reading it so you understand your biases for advancing staff and how to coach your staff to achieve more.
Thanks Patty. Invaluable stuff.
Patty Azzarello, in Rise, points out opportunities for improvement. She's written an easy-to-read book that opened my eyes on what I've been doing wrong. DO, LOOK, and CONNECT struck a chord and her chapters on Working the Right Way inspired me. Based on her writing, I've already started taking control of my work priorities. I'm going to improve my appearance and start being proactive, too.
In short, Patty points out that Managers and Executives think and act differently. You must have the right connections to find those jobs, and a different mindset and skill set to achieve great things once you land the job.
I highly recommend reading this book to fellow technically-trained and technically-minded people. It'll improve your current job and help you see your WORKHORSE traits. It'll also set you up for success when you decide to take that step into Management and Leadership.
Over my 20+ years in the business world I have see these techniques used by successful executives. I have also seen unsuccessful executives not use these techniques. This is the first time I have seen anyone articulate these necessary skills.
I will bribe my kids to read it when they are old enough.
I WISH I had this book 20 years ago.
Please give a copy to young adults as they enter into their careers.
