Pepperdine Caruso Law alumna Cicely Simpson (JD '01) has released Pull Up Your C.H.A.I.R.: Five Strategies to Change the Trajectory of Your Career, published by ForbesBooks. Simpson is a public speaker, leadership coach, and the founder and CEO of the Summit of Public Affairs. The book presents a leadership model designed to coach leaders and executives on how to make their own way and be a person of impact in business and life. Inspired by the famous quote from Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, Simpson advises, “If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.”
The “C.H.A.I.R.” in Simpson’s C.H.A.I.R. Leadership program stands for Champion yourself, Honesty, Adaptability, Impact, and Regrets, and the program itself is derived from Simpson’s experiences working across government agencies, law firms, the U.S. Congress, corporations, and trade associations. As the book progresses, Simpson illuminates each leadership strategy through relevant and relatable stories from her own life. These real-world examples help to ground and distill Simpson’s advanced leadership concepts into concise yet powerful action items for readers to accomplish their goals.
