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.

Excellent advice put in a easy to digest format.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book can change the course of your career. It lists easy to understand principles that help you see a clear path to making changes in your behavior which in turn will make changes in your career trajectory. Excellent book - I suggest it to everyone I know who feels trapped in their current career and every time they come back to me telling me how much it has helped!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rise?

The clarity behind the principles. Making it easy to digest and understand makes it seem viable and possible to make a change.

What about Patty Azzarello’s performance did you like?

Crystal clear vision on how to get where you want to be. Easy to follow instructions as if she is sitting next to you guiding you.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me think; then it made me act!

Any additional comments?

I have both of her books and I cannot wait for the third to come out!
