Carla is Vice Chairman, Managing Director and Senior Client Advisor at Morgan Stanley. She serves on the boards of various non-profits and corporations and is the author of three books, including the soon-to-be released Lead to Win.

Bringing the real you to work allows you to be free! Free to learn new concepts, free to be creative and responsive, free to take risks—all of which helps to enhance the professional that you are and makes you valuable to the organization.
From "Expect to Win" by Carla Harris
