How to survive and thrive in any economic climate with proven strategies from a powerhouse

Carla Harris, one of the most powerful and respected women in business and Chairperson of the National Women's Business Council, shares advice, tips, and strategies for surviving in any workplace environment. While climbing the corporate ladder, Harris had her own personal missteps and celebrated numerous victories. She vowed that when she reached senior management, and people came to her for advice, she would provide them with the tools and strategies honed by her experience.

* Authenticity: The Power is You
* The 90-Day Rule
* Perception is the Co-Pilot to Reality
* The Mentor, The Sponsor, The Adviser: Having Them All
* Leverage Your Voice

* Expect to Win: Show Up With Your Best Self Every Day

* Expect to Win is an inspirational must-read for anyone seeking battle-tested tools to fulfilling their true potential and for fans of Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In.


From Publishers Weekly

Sep 29, 2008 – Despite stellar credentials and more than 20 years of Wall Street experience, Harris, managing director of Goldman Sachs, clumsily delivers hackneyed business guidance. Broken down into chapters detailing “Carla's Pearls” of career advice, the author reneges on her promise to provide practical, strategic tools or specific, play-by-play answers and strategies for business success, depending instead on such standard business-book fare as “Be yourself,” “Know your goals,” “Brand yourself” and “Find a mentor.” Harris's strength is in her supportive tone; she speaks forcefully about asking for what you want, developing a “winner's lens” (the ability to always see yourself as a winner and present yourself as such) and the titular expectation of success, all reasonable advice. But handicapped by halting, repetitive writing and the mobbed state of the business self-help shelves, groaning with similar books offering more substantive strategies than this one, this title will likely sink without a trace.
