Carly Fiorina wrote Tough Choices A Memoir2006 , which I read in December 2015 I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the contributions she made in the field in which I thrived for my entire early career telecommunications Both her stint at Lucent and Hewlett Packard HP in leadership positions revealed important lessons many of us learned during the optimistic 1990s and subdued 2000s Unlike her father s view that learning was not simply a way to make a living, learning was a goal in and o Carly Fiorina wrote Tough Choices A Memoir2006 , which I read in December 2015 I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the contributions she made in the field in which I thrived for my entire early career telecommunications Both her stint at Lucent and Hewlett
I know nothing about HP or management, but I really liked this book Fiorini was the CEO of HP, and this is her autobiography, focused on her climb through the business world from ATT to Lucent to HP There is a lot on management techniques and her personal philosophies on management and business, and this is interesting to read I enjoyed the stories of how she overcame particular obstacles at work What I really liked about it, though, was her frank depiction of the challenges for women I know nothing about H
Having worked at a Cambridge based business school for a little over seven years as an administrative assistant, the story of Carly Fiorina really caught my interest, because I was curious about the gender dynamics and or biases in the business world, if indeed there really were and are any But according to Fiorina s intepretative slant, there are To a certain extent, I believe her she was a controversal CEO, and in reading some of the reviews, there do seem to be some people who have an axe Having worked at a Cambridge based business school for a little over seven years as an administrative assistant, the story of Carly Fiorina really caught my interest, because I was curious about the gender dynamics and or biases in the business world, if indeed there really were and are any But according to Fiorina s intepretative slant, there are To a certain extent, I believe her she was a controversal CEO, and in reading some of the reviews, there do seem to be some people who have an axe to grind in regards to her leadership, especially in HP s acquisition of Compaq, among some other happenings.With a background in medieval history and philosophy, one would not think that that would be a stable foundation for a life in business, but it was always her obedience to her parents and those around her that prevented her from flourishing into what she u
This is an autobiography of the former CEO of HP It chronicles her rise and fall from power I could relate to a lot of it, of course with quite a few less zeroes in my case I read elsewhere that Carly received 21 million in her HP severance agreement 2.5 X her annual salary I agreed with much of Carly s philosophy of business The following quotes resonated with me, primarily in the context of my own situation They the Board did not thank me and they did not say good
I really enjoyed this book One of the best leadership and business books I have read and will likely re read or at the very least borrow wisdom from Carly s astuteness for business is unmatched This was a rather quick read that focused on her career and her thoughts on leadership I read this book to gain some insight into Carly to see if my vote would be her this coming election She certainly now has it, but what I did not expect in this book and I actually appreciated the book did not go t I really enjoyed this book One of the best leadership and business books I have read and will likely re read or at the very least borrow wisdom from Carly s astuteness for business is unmatched This was a rather quick read that focused on her career and her thoughts on leadership I read this book to gain some insight into Carly to see if my vote would be her this coming election She certainly now has it, but what I did not expect in this book and I actually appreciated the book did not go this way was that she did not mention anyting about her political beliefs Rather it was strictly business as she provided a chronology of her career, her education, her early beginnings ending in the culmination of her 5.5 year run as CEO of HP It is unfortunate what happened to her at toward the end of her time at HP, but it is my view she is now destined f

Very inspiring I would want to write a very long review, but if I wait to find the perfect words, it will never happen So, the bottom line is that I feel rejuvenated It have set myself my 5 and 10 year goals because of this book I had never seriously considered management until now, and I owe it all to this book I feel less intimidated by my own management because the book humanizes upper management.My only issue is how she focuses on metrics as measurement of success ie of patents inn Very inspiring I would want to write a very long review, but if I wait to find the perfect words, it will never happen So, the bottom line is that I feel rejuvenated It have set myself my 5 and 10 year goals because of this book I had never seriously considered management unt
