Your career can't just be the means to an end. It's too important, and you spend too much of your life at it. Let it become a means to endless possibilities, passion, and discovery.

In Kingmaker, Joanne Cini shows you positive, value-nourishing ways to move up the corporate ladder, specific techniques for overcoming dysfunctional organizations and "negative energy," which battles are worth a fight, and when it's "game over." Above all, Joanne delivers specific techniques for keeping your freedom, holding on to your values, and staying focused on your most important whole life goals--business and personal.

* Moving up without selling out--Positive, dignified strategies for fasttracking your career.

* What really matters: keeping your eyes on the prize--Staying focused on the goals that really matter to you in your career.

* Choose your next boss--Finding talented, enlightened,, generous leaders ... and what to do until you do.

* A New Plan B: protecting your security ... and your choices--Creating a "freedom plan" that protects and empowers you and realizing that giving your all doesn't mean giving everything.
