Product description

Review

"In this clever twist on the career self-help genre, former CIA agent Carleson takes the principles that she learned in clandestine service and applies them to today's business world... This quick and enjoyable read offers plentiful nuggets of information, which can be put to good use by any career-minded reader."
--"Publishers Weekly"

"I found "Work Like a Spy "to be much more than a compelling read penned by an ex-CIA officer. J. C. Carleson importantly offers a fresh slate of easily understood risk mitigation practices and exercises."
--FRANCIS D'ADDARIO, CPP CFE, Emeritus Faculty Leader, Strategic Influence and Innovation, Security Executive Council "This is a blast! J. C. Carleson has written the cure for the common business book. Part business advice book, part memoir, part window into the world of covert intelligence, it will both inform and intrigue the reader. Going beyond the typical business anecdotes, Carleson gives us a glimpse of the world of covert officers, international intrigue, and true high stakes encounters. More than just telling stories, though, "Work Like a Spy "uses examples from the CIA to provide a set of principles that can be used to succeed in any organization."
--ALEXANDER J. S. COLVIN, Professor of Labor Relations and Conflict Resolution, ILR School, Cornell University "Carleson provides a compelling argument for the importance of intelligence and counterintelligence in day-to-day business. Her straightforward sugges-tions encourage the reader to always be on guard for information--either to keep it or to gather it."
--DEB COHEN, Ph.D., SPHR, SVP, Knowledge Development, Society for Human Resource Management

About the Author

J. C. Carleson worked for Starbucks (corporate), Baxter International and Tektronix prior to leaving the private sector to enter the Central Intelligence Agency's elite clandestine service. She was an undercover CIA officer for eight years.
