CAREER GPS: Strategies for Women Navigating the New Corporate Landscape
By Dr. Ella L.J. Edmondson Bell, Ph.D.
With Linda Villarosa

Even in these trying economic times, opportunities still exist and women can still find new career pathways. But in order for women to succeed, they must understand that it's not enough to work hard and assume the work will speak for itself. They must master a new set of rules by learning how to navigate the ever-changing corporate map. CAREER GPS: Strategies for Women Navigating the New Corporate Landscape by Dr. Ella L.J. Edmonson Bell, PhD with Linda Villarosa helps women assess what kind of business success and positions they aspire to and guides them on what it takes to reach their goals. It is a clear-eyed, timely, and thought-provoking book for any woman looking to advance up the corporate ladder and/or optimize her performance, no matter the economic outlook.

One of the nation's most respected experts in women's career advancement and retention, Dr. Bell bases CAREER GPS on her work as a professor, consultant to Fortune 100 companies, and as leader and founder of ASCENT—Leading Multicultural Women to the Top, the first management and leadership program committed to the professional development and career advancement of women, with a special emphasis on multicultural women. With CAREER GPS, Dr. Bell helps women succeed at every level in a dynamic corporate marketplace, particularly one that is in the midst of radical global and technological change. This book combines Dr. Bell's academic knowledge and expertise with the get-ahead tactics she has shared in mainstream publications, in her classroom, in workshops and in public speaking engagements. Complete with dozens of heartfelt first-person stories from smart, successful women who rose to the top of the ranks, CAREER GPS is a must-have staple for any working woman's bookshelf and will provide guidance for women of all cultures, ages, and levels of experience.
