Summary

Summary

Full of empowering wisdom from one of Silicon Valley's first female African American CEOs, this inspiring leadership book for readers of Dare to Lead and Start with Why offers a blueprint for how to achieve your personal and professional goals, drawn from the author's own compelling story of how she weathered life's difficulties to build massive success. Shellye Archambeau recounts how she overcame the challenges she faced as a young black woman, wife, and mother, managing her personal and professional responsibilities while climbing the ranks at IBM and subsequently in her roles as CEO. Through the busts and booms of Silicon Valley in the early 2000s, this bold and inspiring book details the risks she took and the strategies she engaged to steer her family, her career, and her company MetricStream toward success. Through her journey, Shellye discovered that ambition alone is not enough to achieve success. Here, she shares the practical strategies, tools, and approaches readers can employ right now, including concrete steps to most effectively:
  • Dismantle impostor syndrome
  • Capitalize on the power of planning
  • Take risks
  • Developing financial literacy
  • Build your network
  • Establish your reputation
  • Take charge of your career
  • Integrate work, marriage, parenthood, and self-care
Each chapter lays out key takeaways and actions to increase the odds of achieving your personal and professional goals. With relatable personal stories that ground her advice in the real world and a foreword by leading venture capitalist and New York Times bestselling author Ben Horowitz, Unapologetically Ambitious invites readers to move beyond the solely supportive roles others expect them to fill, to learn how to carefully tread the thin line between assertive and aggressive, and to give themselves permission to strive for the top. Make no apologies for the height of your ambitions. Shellye Archambeau will show you how.

Editorial Reviews

“There are lots of people who have the raw talent and ambition to be great successes but lack a strategy and plan. That’s what Unapologetically Ambitious is about! It reveals Shellye Archambeau’s formula for developing your own talent and getting what you want out of life both professionally and personally. It’s the book I wish I had read when I was in my twenties.” Eric Schmidt, Google CEO and New York Times bestselling author
“In a world that too often tells women, especially Black women, to stay small, keep quiet, and know their limits, this book says otherwise. It’s a celebration of women knowing their power.” Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and New York Times bestselling author
