Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The Success Project is for people, particularly twenty, thirty and forty-somethings, working their way up and dealing with success, what it means, and with the fits and starts, bumps and bruises that accompany success. The book asks three things - 1) What does success mean? 2) What words of wisdom do you live by and/or offer to others? And 3) What part of your story tells us something about success? The result are perspectives on success, competition, money, career, work-life balance, women, diversity, introverts, bluffing, and failure from two dozen c-suite participants, plus 171 pieces of advice culled from the years.
Description
The Success Project is for people, particularly twenty, thirty and forty-somethings, working their way up and dealing with success, what it means, and with the fits and starts, bumps and bruises that accompany success. The book asks three things - 1) What does success mean? 2) What words of wisdom do you live by and/or offer to others? And 3) What part of your story tells us something about success? The result are perspectives on success, competition, money, career, work-life balance, women, diversity, introverts, bluffing, failure plus 171 pieces of advice culled from the years. Well known CEOs, c-suite executives, senior leaders and consultants are the mentors you wish you had - they gathered to share their stories and practical career advice. Two dozen people contributed to The Success Project; eleven are women, six are minorities, two are openly LGBTQ, four are or have been CEOs, thirteen are c-suite executives, six are partners in global consulting firms, eight are MBAs, three are CPAs, two are PhDs, and two are lawyers. All have worked for or with Fortune 500 companies, some in the Fortune 100. This is advice you'll want to hear. Read the book from cover to cover, find the topics that most interest you, or single out the participants whose voices most resonate with you. You might read with friends and with a yellow highlighter. The 171 Pieces of Advice are for browsing.
