Publisher's Summary

A straight-shooting Silicon Valley executive reveals insider career strategies to becoming a great leader, developing your network, succeeding without wasting time, and managing trade-offs between your work and life so your life works.
Patty Azzarello became the youngest general manager at Hewlett-Packard at age 33, ran a $1 billion software business at 35, and became a CEO at 38 - all without turning into a self-centered, miserable jerk. In Rise, Azzarello shares the insider secrets to advancing your career (while having a life) in three practical steps:



Do better: Set ruthless priorities, and work and lead more strategically to deal with frustrating obstacles.
Look better: Build your credibility with the people who can help (or blacklist) you.
Connect better: Develop your network without being political. Get on "the list" of people who get the best opportunities.

Whether you are just starting up the corporate ladder, stuck midcareer, transitioning, or eyeing the corner office, Rise shows you the difference between getting ahead and just working hard.

Everyone looking to own their career needs to read

The best career advice book I've ever read. Patty offers tangible, thoughtful and effective insites to what it takes to step up and rise in your career. Well written and easy to follow. I've already started executing some of the steps she outlines, what a difference. Thank you Patty for sharing your experiences and knowledge.

Annoying Narrator

This narrator ends every single sentence with a low beat. It makes it very difficult to listen to, even though the context seems super beautiful. The author should have just hired out the narrator.
