Testimonials

  • “As a business school professor and former college President and corporate executive, I picked up the book with anticipation and enjoyed it immensely. My ultimate book review is what I did after reading it. I immediately sent it to my daughter (a 37 year old corporate executive) as some of the most useful work advice I have come across in years. She couldn’t put it down!"

  • “Joanna Barsh has written a remarkably engaging and wise book about how to deal with the most vexing workplace challenges. Grow Wherever You Work offers brilliant and field-tested advice so you can respond with grace and competence to ugly hurdles such as working with the office villain and surviving with stretches when everything seems to suck—and for rising to the occasion when it is time to take a big risk. This is the best book of its kind I can recall.” —Robert I.
