Description

The HBS Association of Boston invites you to a conversation with authors Terri Tierney Clark and R. Siisi Adu-Gyamfi, moderated by MIT Senior Lecturer John Carrier, about how to succeed in the corporate world.

So you've Leaned In, now what? In today's world, women's career success relies on much more than just taking advice from a mentor, knowing how to network, and being proactive. Young professional women have to learn how to analyze career decisions for themselves and figure out what to do when their decisions don't work out.

Terri Tierney Clark’s Learn, Work, Lead: Things Your Mentor Won't Tell You is a cutting-edge career and job search guide that will teach you those skills and give you the tools to navigate successfully in a gender-biased workplace. It will show you how to plan your career now so that you will be chosen to lead in the future.

What does it take to succeed in the corporate world? Is it by chance? Is it based on your IQ? What exactly does it take to climb the infamous corporate ladder?

R. Siisi Adu-Gyamfi’s Corporate Politics – A Community Affair: A Proverbial Guide to Success reveals how several successful executives managed to excel when faced with difficult corporate challenges.

These questions are not easily answered because of the inherent politics in corporations. The bad news about corporate politics is that it is real and unavoidable. There are no written rules; hence, it is not widely understood. The good news is that corporate "political" skills are learned skills.

Participants must register by NOON on July 7th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.

Please note that no refunds will be issued
