Powerful, unvarnished advice for growing through the work challenges all aspiring leaders faceThe business world is full of catchphrases: follow your passion; think positive; be authentic; suck it up; take risks; network. All well-intentioned, but let's be honest. This inch-deep advice just isn't very helpful. How do real people succeed in the real world of work? That's the question bestselling author Joanna Barsh sets out to answer -- not by asking motivational gurus or well-established CEOs but by diving into the trenches with today's boldest, brightest, up-and-coming leaders. Distilling the stories of important work challenges from more than 200 rising leaders in 120 companies, this hands-on guide helps you grow through the challenges you face -- not despite them.
