You got the best grades, you’re never afraid of a challenge, and you work your a$$ off at work. But.
Something just isn’t right. The pressure, the politics, and the PowerPoints have left you perplexed, paralyzed and maybe even panicked...“Is it actually possible to have the career I want and deserve?!”
Former corporate CEO turned Professional Pot-Stirrer, Erin Hatzikostas, is on a hell-bent mission to help you have the big career you deserve, without compromising everything else.
You Do You (ish) hurls aside the crusty, decades-old career advice you’ve likely heard for way too long: lean in, executive presence, network, blah, blah, blah. Instead, this book will help you see that there's a better way to have success and get great results. You succeed, you don’t sell out.
You Do You (ish) will take you on a roller-coaster ride that will have you go deep, say “aha”, and possibly tinkle a little while laughing. The book is whimsical and inspiring, yet also grounded in Erin’s proprietary H.U.M.A.N.S. framework - Six Principles of Strategic Authenticity.
Gain confidence that authenticity in the workplace is not only possible, it’s actually your new secret weapon for success.
Erase the self doubt you have and stop relying on the “Compromise Calculation” you’re likely running in your head (especially us women...sorry, but it’s true).
Start to fall in love with your work and life (again) by not just being authentic, but by doing authentic.
Eliminate the dreadful work and job anxiety that haunts you when facing the BS at work.

We’re told that the key to getting ahead at work is to be authentic, to be a humble “servant leader.”
Michael Wenderoth shows us otherwise:
How being inauthentic can help us grow and serve us.
How embracing office politics is not underhanded but essential.
And how building power is not dirty but the real key to success.
The truth in GET PROMOTED will probably first piss you off, but it’s going to set you free. Follow his 3-part Framework of the Rock, the Map, and the Snowball, and you’ll not only get promoted, you’ll learn about power, the force by which things really get done.
If you feel stalled and frustrated that you’re not moving up faster or need that extra edge as you enter the next stage of your career, look no further: This is your “hard truths” playbook.
