Career forward

strategies from women who've made it
Grace Puma and Christiana Smith Shi
Book - 2024

"At a time when many long-held workplace structures and beliefs are changing, Career Forward is a beacon for women aspiring to achieve success and satisfaction in rewarding careers. Drawing on decades of experience reaching the top of Fortune 500 companies, Grace Puma and Christiana Smith Shi show women how to maximize their career journeys, get paid what they're worth, navigate the shifts that occur in any company, build a leadership identity, and have a full life in and out of work. The authors challenge negative stereotypes about female ambition, and urge women to be bold, follow their dreams, and seize the chance to lead "big" lives. The secret is to focus on career first, job second. Instead of chasing a better job title or a salary bump, the goal should be a long-range career path that leads to success. "Career forward" means keeping a focus on the future and recognizing that being good at your job is often not enough--that you should take every opportunity to boost your connections, take on "difficult" assignments, and work actively to broaden your skills. Packed with personal anecdotes and wisdom from women who've been there, and featuring quizzes and checklists for self-evaluation, Career Forward provides a wealth of valuable lessons, including the value of thinking of yourself as a "growth stock" and, instead of chasing the elusive work-life balance, living a well-rounded 360-degree life that fully embraces both. Offering a refreshing response to anyone who wonders whether working hard is really worth it, Puma and Smith Shi's emphatic answer is "yes," because by correctly following the blueprint in Career Forward, the rewards will far outweigh the effort"--
