Playing to Win in Business
Shirley A. Weis, author
Shirley Weis grew up in a small Michigan town and was the first person in her family to attend college. From her humble first job as a nursing aide to the pinnacle of success as the first female Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at the prestigious Mayo Clinic, Shirley Weis knew a secret that led to her success. That secret, one she discovered when she was very young, took her to the executive suite where she was responsible for overseeing 60,000 employees and operations of Mayo Clinic’s $9 billion healthcare system. Shirley wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth and didn’t have any important people opening the doors for her. What she had instead was a keen realization that business was a game. Like every game, it had rules. Once Shirley figured out the rules of success in business, her career took off in a winning trajectory. Women of all ages, from those who are just entering the workforce to those who aspiring to move into management, will be fascinated by Shirley’s principles of business success from her newly released book, Playing to Win in Business.
