Former IBM CEO Ginni Rometty delivers a powerful combination of memoir, leadership lessons, and big ideas on how we can all drive meaningful change.
Ginni Rometty recounts her groundbreaking path from a challenging childhood to becoming the CEO of IBM and one of the world's most influential business leaders. With candor and depth, Rometty shares milestones from her life and career while redefiningh power as a way to drive meaningful change in positive ways for ourselves, our organizations, and for the many, not just the few - a concept she calls "good power."
Rommety shows us how her concept of good power evolved as she grew from a first-time manager to a transformative CEO. Stories told through the lens of five principles - be in service of others; build belief; know what must change and what must endure; steward good tech; be resilient - reveal tools that anyone can apply to achieve real change at any stage of their life and work.
She also encourages us to use good power at scale to bring about urgent societal change. She shares insights from her own journey to create a more equitable world by leading the SkillsFirst movement, which connects underserved populations with family-sustaining jobs by transforming hiring, education, and training.
