Career GPS: Strategies for Women Navigating the New Corporate Landscape Career GPS: Strategies for Women Navigating the New Corporate Landscape

by Ella L. J. Edmondson Bell, Ph.D. with Linda Villarosa

Book Reviews

"Dr. Bell simultaneously lifts the spirit and gives down-to-earth advice, exercises and examples for mastering corporate life without abandoning who you really are."
--Luke Visconti, Chief Executive Officer, DiversityInc

"Career GPS serves as the business coach you never had but always wanted. From getting the job you want to getting noticed for the job you've done, you'll find tangible tips for winning in the new world of work."
--Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office and See Jane Lead

"If you are a woman who wants to get to the top of the house, you must read this book. Career GPS provides a vital road map for how women can navigate their way to the C-suite in a rapidly changing workforce."
--Sylvia Ann Hewlett, economist and author, most recently, of Top Talent: Keeping Performance Up When Business Is Down

"Dr. Ella Bell and Linda Villarosa offer valuable advice about how to successfully compete on a global playing field, cultivate leadership, and manage your whole self. This book is a great add to any woman's professional tool chest."
--Carla Harris, author of Expect To Win

Online Reviews

"Career GPS is properly indexed, so it's easy to use. I recommend it not only for women seeking to improve their career opportunities and realize their potential, but also to corporate executives -- men and women -- to help them understand how their employees view today's radically changed corporate environment."
--Basil & Spice

"It is so easy to make a wrong turn anytime in one's life but it is especially easy to make a wrong decision when making career choices. The invention of the GPS for automobiles has served travelers well over the past few years. This book can provide the same type of direction for those women entering the corporate world to prevent them from turning down dead-end streets."
--Suite 101 Marketing PR

"While the stories recounted all pertain to women (with specific emphasis for women of minority cultures), the advice for advancement is universal. More importantly, Bell takes the reader forward, not back. She reaches to future strategies rather than focusing on what's worked before and what works for now. One theme stressed is the need to create and maintain social relationships with upper management. In effect, coaching for the 21st century."
--Suite 101 Career Coaching

"Career GPS is truly an all-around guide to finding and keeping a name in the corporate world. Full of straight talk, helpful advice and peppered with firsthand accounts and personal stories; it will help any woman reach her chosen destination."
-- Suite 101 Career Advice

"Drawing from her work as a consultant, Dr. Bell helps readers succeed at every level in a dynamic corporate marketplace. Career GPS combines Dr. Bell's academic knowledge and expertise with dozens of heartfelt first-person stories from smart women who rose through the ranks."
--Employee Factor

"Here is a book that will guide women of all cultures, ages, and levels of experience to their career goals."
--Pretty Savvy

"This is an excellent, practical guide to all aspects of career management. The target is women but it deserves to be read by anyone wanting sound career management advice. The book has an inspiring and confidence building message that would be a great help to anyone starting from a base of low confidence who is seeking a successful career."
--Leaders Direct

"As a mom who isn't out in the work force right now, I loved the section on pgs. 144-148, 'HOW DO YOU KNOW THE ASSIGNMENT IS RIGHT?' This chapter applies to those working in the home as well as those out in the work force. The author puts in clear steps to guide your thinking once an opportunity or assignment comes your way."
-- Cafe Scrapper

"The book is broader than the subtitle implies in terms of career guidance. Bell does a good job of wrapping things up with perspective -- you have to be balanced in work and life to stay self-aware, and be willing to change when things aren't working. As the book's theme is woven throughout -- your career, like life, is constantly shifting and moving in different directions. You need tools to make sure you're on track (a GPS) to maintain the right destination to achieve the success you deserve."

"This book is a great reference for anyone in college on what to do leading up to graduation to help hit the pavement running. Never underestimate the power of being emotionally and socially prepared for your career!"
--The Examiner
