Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"With this book, you can save yourself months and even years in moving upward and onward in your job and your career."
Brian Tracy, Bestselling Author and International Expert on Entrepreneurship and Selling

"'Blitz the Ladder' describes a compelling, contemporary, common sense approach for anyone interested in progressing in their career regardless of age, profession or industry. Todd Rhoad combines solid research with easy-to-implement tactics into a great book that should be on everyone's shortlist of must reads."
Julie Jansen, author of 'I Don't Know What I Want, But I know it's Not This'

About the Author

Todd Rhoad's expertise is drawn from twenty years of experience as an engineer struggling to climb the corporate ladder through government, private, public, profit and non-profit organizations. Thinking education alone would be sufficient to climb the ladder, Todd obtained both a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering and Business Administration. He has worked in numerous industries from consumer products to high technology research and development while serving in roles from engineer to finally reaching the managerial ranks. He is currently Managing Director at Bt Consulting in Austin, TX. With over 30 publications in journals, books and conferences, he is a frequent speaker and presenter at symposiums and conferences.

By Al Dean on July 23, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is wonderful at helping you figure out how to get to your brass ring. For those who have followed other advice, such as get a degree, work hard and accomplish great things, but still don't get the opportunities to really grow in their career, Todd Rhoad provides you the insight into using resources you may never have thought of using; that is, other people.

The biggest thing readers should know about this book is that it teaches you a method for becoming more successful in your career. You'll learn how to draw out a map to your goals and what resources you need to get there. This approach doesn't leave you alone to solve all the problems and challenges you may face because you have a team of supporters right there to help you.

After going through the book, I recognized a few things that may be holding me back such as I'm always doing what I think is right. The team approach would provide other perspectives that would provide a bigger picture and a more accurate call for action. I highly recommend this book!
