Learn Work Lead should be on the recommended reading list of every college career center in the country. Terri Tierney Clark saves young professionals years of trying to figure out how to succeed in the workplace through the strategic way she illuminates every important aspect of office life in clear language and compelling examples. I was going to buy the book as holiday gifts, but it is so powerful, I will be buying the young professionals in our family their copies right now so they can start ...more

A practical, well-laid-out book for female careerists just starting out and those working up from "expert" to "powerhouse."

Tierney Clark offers lots of real life examples from which to learn both good and bad behavior and strategy in your ascent to the top of your field. I love that she advocates for women setting lofty goals even at the start of our careers. As she says, "aim high" but "remain relentlessly pleasant and likable."

Some takeaways I found especially powerful:
- Learn "not to just

I received this book as part of a GoodReads Giveaway.

Normally I am not a self-help book kind of person, but I was glad when I won this book. The advice is straightforward and applicable. Terri Tierney Clark writes from her own background on Wall Street, and while that was a little foreign to someone who has spent the last 5 years in Non Profit work, she breaks down common sense advice with "Why didn't anyone tell me that," moments. She also addresses gender divisions without using them as an

Terri Tierney Clark has written the book that provides the advice I want to give my daughters, but that a) I don’t have the skill to convey, and b) they would never take if it came from me! Believe me, they’ll each get a copy of Learn, Work. Lead! Terri’s experiences navigating the uncharted waters of women on Wall Street will resonate with many mothers who forged careers in male-dominated domains, but more importantly it provides sound, wise guidance with a good dose of humor and is both valid ...more

I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway. I am really impressed with the valuable advice that Terri gives. Much of the advice are tips that I have never heard before. Learn, work, lead is very applicable to my current career situation (I am a recent graduate working for one of the largest companies in the world) and I am very lucky to have stumbled upon this book. Thank you Terri for your words of wisdom!

This will come in very handy for my children as they reach the age where they will be entering the work force, I'm going to be sure they both have a copy.

Shelves: 5-star, nonfiction
Life may not come with an instruction manual, but this book will help you to negotiate the part of life you spend working. This is the handbook that will help the young career woman steer clear of pitfalls, and set her sights on advancement. While directed at women, much of the advice will be helpful for either gender.

For those of us that have been around the block a few times, much of the advice contained in these pages is common sense, but every working person should find some gem of advice

If you're a regular Careerist and Muse reader, this book is a nice reminder of best practices for women in the workplace, however, some points stuck out to me as being perfectly ripe food tidbits for thought:

- Leverage high-level volunteering: Plenty of volunteering gigs are glory-less, but there are some that could lead to a job within that company or another, assuming that you get results. This can be particularly helpful if you don't yet have experience, or have a full-time job and want
