Success Is a Four-Letter Word: 'Edge'

BY MEGAN LABRISE • January 28, 2020

Harvard Business School professor Laura Huang wants to help you find your competitive edge.

 

 

On this episode, we welcome Laura Huang, an expert on the unconscious attitudes that affect our assessments of others.

Her atypical career management guide, Edge: Turning Adversity to Advantage (Portfolio/PRH), presents a system for overcoming implicit bias by turning stereotypes to your own advantage.

Huang and host Megan Labrise discuss her legendary meeting with Elon Musk, researching early-stage entrepreneurship, and how to take the reins of your success.

Then, children’s editor Vicky Smith, YA editor Laura Simeon, nonfiction editor Eric Liebetrau, and fiction editor Laurie Muchnick offer their reading recommendations for the week.

Emma by Cheryl Wills, ill. by Sue Cornelison (Lightswitch Learning)

How to Build a Heart by Maria Padian (Algonquin)

Fight of the Century: Writers Reflect on 100 Years of ACLU Cases edited by Michael Chabon & Ayelet Waldman (Avid Reader Press)
