Editorial Reviews

Review

"Leave it to Patty Azzarello to turn the secrets of genuine and effective leadership into a practical action plan. Who needs a mentor when you can read this book?"
-Debra Chrapaty, CIO, Zynga

"I often get midlevel managers asking me how they can crack into the next level, and I have had many managers who don't ask and get stuck. Rise is the definitive guidebook to create a breakout moment in almost any career."
-Rob Meinhardt, GM, Dell

"Did you ever wish someone would just write down what you have to do to get promoted? Rise lays it out for you. It's easy to read, easy to implement, and tested in the real world. Read this book, or else work for someone who did."
-Jim Davis, CEO, Verified Person, Inc.

I read a lot of business books and the few that are good, still usually contain only about a chapter full of useful stuff. Rise is different. It is power-packed with good advice, tips and insights, from someone who's been extremely successful.

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!

If you were wondering, why you got passed over for promotion or why you didn't get your last raise, then Patty will show exactly the reasons. As an employer and business owner, I wish all my staff would read and ACT on the advice found in Rise. The book is not that long and well organized. Its written in clear style that helps move things along and make it highly readable.

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.

I have read many business books over the years, self growth, honing skills and the like. Usually, I would walk away taking one lesson or maybe two that I could follow up on. What I truly love about Patty's book is that it is filled with such practical, down to earth points to learn and act on that will generate tangible results.
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!

The book is wonderful. The title does not do the content justice. I bought it and it sat for months. Once I started reading I could not put it down. This book is a necessary manual on how to be successful in the corporate world. The author does a wonderful job of explaining how (1) you can't and SHOULDN'T do all the work you are given, (2) how to successfully handle that with your boss, (3) how to move yourself ahead and be a better employee to the company.

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.

Fantastic book.

I've spent my entire career as a technical person, doing a great job wherever I've worked (workhorse - see the book for details). I earned my MSIS in an attempt to improve my career. But my career still stalled.

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.

This book is a short cut to 10 years of learning the ropes in office politics, how to think, act and perform like an executive. I simply can't say enough about this book. I bought a hard copy for my 18 yr old daughter and will have my 16 yr old son read it as well. It is that good. There is a life lesson at every turn of the page.

My favorite, most quoted, most read, and most recommended Career Development & Leadership book is "Rise," by Patty Azzarello. I was blessed to meet Patty six years ago where she was training several BIG software companies on how to build the right strategies, tactical plans, and successful execution. I was blown away at her personality, experience, knowledge, and coaching. It wasn't too long after that Patty released "Rise" which was the amalgamation of what she taught us. This book will help you better understand how to balance your workload and career development plan. As you turn the pages, you will start hearing her whisper "You have to take ownership of your career while doing your job well." Hence, DO BETTER, LOOK BETTER, and CONNECT BETTER. This simple, yet powerful, formula had a huge impact on my career. It has enabled me to work smarter, better, and get results. The past two years I have been mentoring others leveraging "Rise" and Patty's training. It has been wonderful to see their career's progress. I highly recommend this book to you and encourage you to read Patty's BLOGS and sign up for her membership service. She continuously reinforces "Rise's" fundamental principles with updated guidance and direction. These are the tools required if you want truly need to take ownership of your career and rise.
