"You want-you need-Alexandra Levit as your guide." -Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive
There's been a major paradigm shift in business practices and the workplace. Alexandra Levit tells readers what no longer holds true for getting ahead today, and debunks business myths that are more dangerous and less viable than ever-given the current climate of ethical scrutiny and intense competition-including it's best to climb the ladder as fast as possible, and that employers want you to be yourself.
Levit offers something better in place of these myths: practical advice on what it really takes to succeed in this new values-driven environment.
Alexandra Levit is known as one of the premiere spokespeople of her generation and she regularly speaks at corporations, conferences, and universities on workplace issues. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.
"Alexandra Levit tells it like it is-not how we'd like it to be-busting myth after myth along the way to get us exactly where we want to go."
--Tory Johnson, founder and CEO, Women For Hire
"Don't believe the hype! When it comes to career advancement without killing yourself, no one tells the story better than Alexandra Levit."
