The Seat: How to Get Invited to the Table When You're Over-Performing but UndervaluedWhether you’re trying to get a seat at the C-Suite table, trying to get your foot in the door of your dream job, trying to make a sale with a client, or asking for a promotion or a raise, getting “The Seat” is one of the biggest challenges you will face in your career progression. In my new book, The Seat, I pull from my 30 years of business experience, my journey to earning an executive seat, and the strategies, setbacks, and lessons I learned as a woman, a person of color, a single mom, and an HR professional.
It was a road wrought with disappointments, setbacks, haters, failures, being marginalized, unjustifiably criticized, and held to a different standard. Yet it is a story of perseverance, making sacrifices, compromises, right decisions, staying focused, becoming fearless, and being determined to succeed in spite of the obstacles.
You’ll walk away with an abundance of ideas and strategies on how to add value to your organization and strategically position yourself for whatever seat you seek. This book is a necessary read for anyone who is overlooked and undervalued while over-performing and still not invited to the table.
