Master the balance between working on your career and working in it. Intelligence Isn’t Enough helps Black professionals make strategic decisions and learn the unspoken rules for success.

Recounting the frustration she felt as a young Black woman beginning her career, Carice Anderson knows that many Black professionals are relying on their education and intellect alone to be successful in the workplace. In this book, she empowers young Black professionals by equipping them with advice and little-known principles of career success from her experiences and interviews with thirty successful Black leaders.

Intelligence Isn’t Enough is divided into six chapters that guide readers through what Anderson calls the three “major corporate muscle groups”:

  • Knowing yourself— understanding your story and investigating your mindset
  • Knowing others—building and sustaining important relationships in the workplace
  • Knowing your environment—analyzing your organization’s culture

Anderson will teach you how to integrate the knowledge of these three groups to craft an authentic personal brand and communication style that will help you maximize your impact.

Using personal stories, quotes, lessons learned, and advice from both the author and Black leaders who have worked in some of the finest institutions across North America, Africa, and Europe, Black professionals will learn tips and tools to strategically chart their career paths and advance in the workplace for lifelong success.
