The co-founder of HGTV shows how women can achieve their career goals using techniques of gamesmanship.

New Rules of the Game provides insights, tips and direction to women in business, based on experiences from author and HGTV co-founder Susan Packard's own 30 year career, along with a dozen other prominent executives. Packard advocates for a revolutionary new perspective for businesswomen, which she calls "gamesmanship"—a strategic way of thinking that cultivates creativity, focus, optimism, teamwork, and competitiveness. These strategies are seen in the gaming and sports worlds and often among men, but women can utilize these skills as well to learn to:

• Compete outwardly instead of inwardly
• Take loss in stride
• Provide the emotional distance necessary to succeed at work
• Think tactically
• Step up with more grit to get the next win
• Level the playing field by understanding how male colleagues think and win at work
• Add excitement to their careers

Quotes & Awards

  • “This work mixes sports imagery with the inside scoop on TV production as Packard relates personal anecdotes and cautionary tales about her career as a broadcast executive…Full of hard-earned practical advice for women climbing a corporate ladder.”

    Library Journal

  • “Examines the skills, behaviors, and strategies of gamesmanship in corporate settings…If winning were the only theme, the book’s appeal would be limited, but Packard presents her ideas in the context of treating people, including competitors, fairly and respectfully. Great leaders, she writes, demonstrate good sportsmanship whether they win or lose, have the grit to move on from mistakes and defeats, and build a team with shared values. A straightforward guide to success that deserves a prime spot on the bookshelves of career women aspiring to reach the highest corporate ranks.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “I live many of Packard’s ‘rules of gamesmanship’ through my mother’s wise examples.”

    Rachael Ray, American television personality

  • “Finding comfort competing, the importance of practicing many roles on a team, and the key role that resilience plays—these define a winning spirit. Susan’s book will be extremely useful to all women navigating career choices.”

    Margo Georgiadis, president of Americas at Google

  • “Business advancement requires passion and a spirit of competition, as well as collaboration. How women can express this successfully is captured well in Susan Packard’s New Rules of the Game.”

    Susan Cameron, CEO, Reynolds American, Inc.
