Full Description

"An inspiring story of embracing one's true self, with practical advice"
Publishers Weekly, BookLife Review (Editor's Pick) ***** Embrace the Power of You In the competitive world of Silicon Valley, corporate lawyer Tricia Montalvo Timm knew that talent and drive weren't enough to succeed. She had to belong. Timm took a cue from her days as a child actor, when she had to change her name to get auditions. As an adult, she downplayed her Latino heritage and her life as a mother to fit in. But after two decades of hiding and feeling exhausted and frustrated, she realized that to truly belong she needed to accept herself first. It worked. After showing up at work as her authentic self, her career soared. At the height of her success, she led the sale of software company Looker to Google for $2.6 billion. If you've ever hidden your real self to belong, Embrace the Power of You will resonate. Timm's journey toward self-acceptance provides a wealth of insight into the reasons why people feel alienated and invisible in the workplace. Timm knows firsthand the fear and shame that comes from hiding your identity, and shows how to overcome those feelings one small step at a time. Through her own story and those of other top executives, she offers powerful strategies and simple tools on how you too can show up as your authentic self at work. If you've ever hidden your identity to fit in, this book will set you on the path to succeed at levels higher than you ever thought possible. A singular book from one of the only Latinas to have attained the triple achievements of reaching the C-Suite, joining the boardroom and cracking the venture capital ceiling, Embrace the Power of You is a warm and courageous guide to finding success through choosing your authentic self.
