successful Silicon Valley executive and consultant shares proven advice and straight-shooting tips for getting ahead, becoming a respected leader, and enjoying a healthy work-life balance. Patty Azzarello became the youngest general manager at Hewlett-Packard at age 33, ran a $1 billion software business at 35, and became a CEO at 38 all without turning into a self-centered, miserable jerk. Now a private business consultant, Patty shares her hard-won secrets to succeeding at work without losing your sanity in three steps: DO BETTER (discover the vital difference between working hard and succeeding, deal with frustrating obstacles and stupid people); LOOK BETTER (be visible but not annoying, build your credibility with the people who can help or blacklist you); and CONNECT BETTER (develop your network without being political). Patty's no-nonsense tone and anecdotes will help managers and up-and-comers alike improve their work lives and career trajectories while still living well.
