In Make It Your Business, Sylvia Montero tells the story of her journey from the plantation shack in Puerto Rico and the Projects of the Lower East Side to a Human Resources career at Pfizer Inc which she capped by becoming the highest ranking Latina in the history of the company, as head of global Human Resources.
Sylvia narrates her linear story highlighting the situations that most challenged her as a young girl and a young woman: immigration, learning a second language, being a minority, poverty, failed marriage, single motherhood, failure, and layoff.
She condenses a 30+ year career in Human Resources into themes that illustrate how to climb the Corporate Ladder: Self-Confidence, Performance, Organizational Savvy, Presentation of Self and Leadership, adding a special section on issues unique to gender. Sylvia jam-packs her narrative with candid stories of successes and setbacks.
With a goal to convince others to reach beyond their dreams, Sylvia’s reflections translate to portable tools for how to succeed in Corporate America.
