My work here is about business leadership, strategy execution, executive career advancement, and building the kind of authentic success that does not require you to sacrifice your soul and your life, or kill your team to get there.

I’m the author of two books: 
Rise: 3 Practical Steps for Advancing Your Career, Standing Out as a Leader AND Liking your Life (Random House)
and 
MOVE: How Decisive Leaders Execute Strategy Despite Obstacles, Setbacks and Stalls. (Wiley)

I work at the intersection of business success and humanity.

Business can be hard on one's humanity... There are impossible demands, shrinking resources, nasty politics, arrogant people in power, shifting priorities, slow decsions, strategic stalls...It can wear you down.

Effective leadership is built upon dealing with these realities, and understanding what will truly motivate and engage people to do the work that the business needs done anyway.

My work enables leaders to help people stay motivated…to do new and challenging things…over a period of time…in an aligned and decisive way -- so your strategy doesn't mysteriously stall after the exciting kickoff, or fail to ever even get beyond the talking.

Here at Azzarello Group you’ll find lots of critical insights for your business, as well as specific and practical ideas and tools to implement them in your own situation to go faster, reduce risk, and lower stress.

But the theme that underlies it all is good leadership that is based on authenticity and humanity.

And I’m also here to give to you all the career advancement secrets that I learned during more than 20 years in building my own career up from entry level engineer, through mid-level and general management positions, ultimately to become a CEO...

MOVE: LEADING BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION

Have you ever embarked on a new strategy only for it to stall shortly after the exciting kickoff? In this insightful and very pragmatic talk, based on her best selling book MOVE, Patty shares the formula to get your organization executing your strategy instead of just talking about it. Learn how to implement strategic transformation in your business. See how to get your team truly aligned and motivated to stick with your strategy when it gets hard. Get practical ideas for how to keep people focused on strategic change when short term pressures and opportunities distract. Get there this time!

LEADERSHIP IS PERSONAL

Do you want your managers and employees to be more motivated and engaged? Do you want to support them to be more accountable, make more decisions, and become better leaders of their own teams? Patty shares how to be a more confident, authentic and inspiring leader, and how to succeed without sacrificing your soul or your life to get there. Patty shares personal stories about how she overcame many social and political roadblocks to ultimately gain the recognition and support necessary to succeed. In this talk you will see how to reclaim your authentic self, build your confidence, and engage others to achieve your most important business goals -- AND enjoy your life more along the way.
