Here’s a brief overview of the book:
If you think that by just exceeding your performance goals, you will land into a leadership role, you are mistaken. You need an integrated strategy for career advancement. This book provides a template for that integrated strategy. Concrete examples on how to identify your super power, build your brand, invest in yourself, navigate work politics, and build a support system will help you get started today on your road to success.
My heart is filled with gratitude for the support that I have received from influential leaders- Charu Sharma, Noelle LaCharite, Amit Chaudry, Deanna Kosaraju, David Haubert, Shalini Agarwal, Clay Magouyrk, Sapnesh Lalla, Jenny Tsai-Smith, Rana Salman and Beth Broderson and their endorsements for my book.
Advance Praise for Fast Track Your Leadership Career
I am thrilled that Rashim decided to write Fast Track Your Leadership Career. She has been on various leadership panels hosted by NextPlay and has coached Women in Tech on how to prepare for leadership roles. She has captured those insights and her real life examples in this book in the form of a template that can be used by anyone in a leadership role. While most of us seek mentors, very few people put a strategy together for finding a sponsor. Rashim advocates for being strategic about identifying sponsors and nurturing those relationships to advance your leadership career. She encourages readers to push the envelope and not be shy to ask sponsors to recommend them for a promotion or a job that they are interested in when the time comes.
