Overview

"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.
