Corner Office Rules is essential reading for anyone who thinks they've got what it takes to rise to the top of the corporate ladder. Through an engaging series of real life stories told by today's top professionals, readers will learn the tools they need to work their way from middle level management to that always envied executive leadership position. Welcome to the world of senior leadership! As you negotiate the often treacherous territory of corporate responsibility, Corner Office Rules provides the guidance you need to become the kind of leader you expect. First and foremost, you will learn that allowing unrealistic expectations to dictate your agenda will quickly result in never pleasing anyone, solving anything, or delivering any results. To perform effectively as a senior leader, you must accept the reality that you'll never have all the answers! Leadership roles come with all sorts of titles: CEO, CFO, president, executive vice president, senior vice president or partner. Or perhaps you strive to be executive director, principal, pastor, dean, captain, coach, business owner, or chairman. Or why not mayor, governor, or senator? Whatever the title in front of your name, it all means the same thing-you are now in charge. The realities of such responsibility are laid bare in the pages of Corner Office Rules along with the necessary tools to handle the enormous expectations that come both from others...and from yourself. While other self-help business books get bogged down with lofty business "philosophies" that don't amount to much in the real word, Corner Office Rules empowers readers to take control of their own corporate fate. Learn what it's really like to have everyone looking at you for guidance, even as you face problems with no solutions, questions with no answers, and demands with no alternatives. With the failure or success of an entire organization resting on your shoulders, how do you juggle it all? Learn what it takes to become a leader in your field with the guidance of two of today's most prominent business leaders. Author Keith R.
