Overview

'While this is the story of an amazing woman’s life and career, there are many very important lessons here for ALL of us.' John Kelly, Senior Executive at IBM

Breaking Through the Silicon Ceiling takes the reader on the amazing journey of Chris King's life and her rise from being a poor, uneducated, 20-year-old single mom to being the world's first female CEO of a semiconductor company. In a story full of twists and turns, the reader is carried through emotional highs and lows, and given the gift of learning what Chris had to learn through trial and error - that success in business is not dictated by your demographic or the types of challenges that life might throw at you. The seeds of success are within you. In Breaking Through the Silicon Ceiling, we follow Chris on her path from the trailer park to the boardroom, and we learn the 12 essential principles that guided her along the way. Chris' principles are hard-earned truths that have been proven time and again in her professional, avocational, and personal lives. This book will encourage and empower you to discern and chart your own path to greater success in business and life.
