BOOKS

Janice Ellig is the co-author of two highly regarded books:

What Every Successful Woman Knows

Acknowledged by Bloomberg Businessweek as “the best of its genre,” Janice’s first book offers 12 proven strategies for women who have set their sights on the executive suite. Derived, in part, from in-depth interviews with more than 200 successful senior corporate women, these strategies embody an array of critical dos and don’ts—from building a power base to avoiding becoming a generalist (multi-specialize instead)—and a range of key tactical behaviors, such as bonding with your boss, exuding authority, and seizing the significant and dumping the insignificant. Together these strategies constitute a coherent action plan for getting the power in an organization and wielding it effectively.

“For anyone whose career could use an overhaul – or even just a tune – up – Driving the Career Highway is a must-read. Loaded with fresh insights and practical, down-to-earth wisdom, it’s an indispensable guidebook for navigating the murky terrain of corporate success today.”
