Grow Wherever You Work

Straight Talk to Help With Your Toughest Challenges

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.

How Remarkable Women Lead

The Breakthrough Model for Work and Life

The book that does for leadership, women, and business what Martin Seligman's Learned Optimism did for psychology--powerful research-based insights using great stories that show readers how to reach the pinnacle and enjoy the journey taking them there.
