Episode 138 of the Business Bookshelf - Shellye Archambeau - Author of "Unapologetically Ambitious"

Today our guest is Shellye Archambeau.

Shellye Archambeau is one of Silicon Valley's first female African American CEOs. Formerly an executive at IBM and CMO at two public companies, Shellye was recruited to be the CEO of a then-struggling Silicon Valley startup, which is now MetricStream, a recognized global leader in governance, risk, and compliance software solutions. She currently serves as a Fortune 500 board member and holds board seats at Verizon, Nordstrom, Roper Technologies, and Okta.

Shellye is the author of “Unapologetically Ambitious: Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms”. Each chapter lays out key takeaways and actions to increase the odds of achieving your personal and professional goals. Unapologetically Ambitious invites readers to move beyond the solely supportive roles others expect them to fill, to learn how to carefully tread the thin line between assertive and aggressive, and to give themselves permission to strive for the top.
