Basic Black - The Essential Guide for Getting Ahead at Work and in Life

Cathie Black

Cathie Black is the wise, funny mentor that every woman dreams of having. She was a pioneer in advertising sales at a time when women didn't sell; served as president and publisher of the fledgling USA Today; and, in her current position as the president of Hearst Magazines, persuaded Oprah to launch a magazine. In 2006 she was named one of Fortune's "50 Most Powerful Women in American Business" for the seventh consecutive year. Now, in the exuberant, down-to-earth voice that is her trademark, Cathie explains how she achieved "the 360° life"-a blend of professional accomplishment and personal contentment-and how any woman can seize opportunity in the workplace. No matter where you are in your career, BASIC BLACK offers invaluable lessons that will help you land the job, promotion, or project you're vying for. Throughout the audiobook, Cathie offers fascinating glimpses of media and business personalities, but at the core of it are her candid, personal stories. BASIC BLACK provides a close-up look at the keen judgment, perseverance, and optimism that have propelled Cathie Black to the top of her game, along with the kind of straight-up practical advice you get in a one-on-one session with a career coach. You'll find out how to handle job interviews, which rules to break, and why you should make your life a grudge-free zone. Equally important, you'll be inspired to pursue your passions and achieve your very best. From the Compact Disc edition.
