What is your book about?
Today’s professionals have more challenges than ever facing them at work and at home, from differences still not fully respected in corporate culture to the impacts of technology (AI) and COVID-19 on health and family needs. As a result, too many rising stars get pushed out of the leadership pipeline, suffer through toxic work situations, or see their careers cut short when companies cut back.
With mounting responsibilities at home, too many talented people fear making a big change and stay too long in a job that is the wrong fit. Go! shows how to listen to those nagging feelings that it is time to change and then make a thoughtful and savvy plan toward a truly fulfilling career. Equal parts validation, empowerment, and guide, in Go! Lisa Thee provides powerful examples of transforming one’s career from a wide array of leaders and from her own experiences. Lisa also outlines a versatile personal 90-day career reboot plan. In addition, Go! opens today’s leaders’ eyes to ways their work culture may need to evolve to keep the best talent and develop diverse leadership for their future. Data literacy, Innovation, and Artificial Intelligence are growing areas in the future of work, which is where Lisa’s expertise and thought leadership shines.
