Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

From Introduction: No one disputes it - people development is vital. Pick any topic - e-commerce, globalization, megamergers - and the need for new skills grows stronger.

Development is important for every position in the organization, especially executives. It's no longer the world of clear-cut career paths and a concrete set of knowledge. It is an ever-shifting, increasingly demanding, faster paced world in which knowledge is central.

The executive role is more demanding today than it was a decade ago. Executives need to display depth and breadth in more areas than their predecessors. Mindful, sustained development is the only way executives can acquire the skills they need to thrive in such an environment. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Susan Gebelein and the contributors at Personnel Decisions have taken the ever-useful Successful Manager's Handbook and raised the bar for executives. This book does a good job of addressing the often vague, nebulous, and "fuzzy" skills and behaviors that make senior executives successful.
The book is truly written for leaders who are responsible for the strategy, health, and market performance of their organizations, and offers specific development suggestions and advice, as well as references to a good selection of supporting material.
I would recommend using this book as 1) a reminder of things that you should not forget to do in an executive role, and 2) a resource for specific advice on how to do better.
It makes a good companion (and word of sensible, research-based advice) to the popular books on executive leadership. I find the research-based recommendations written well and concisely--an advantage for execs who are always pressed for time.

Format: Paperback
The information architecture of this exceptionally useful guide exemplify the publisher's respect of the material. The guide is resourceful and easy to use. This is not, as one reviewer suggests, a poor book to be compared to "7Habits". The Successful Executive;s Handbook will be a welcome resource addition to any person responsible for the culture, health and profitability of their organization. My copy is dog-eared and comfortingly close to my desk.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Amy on December 15, 2008
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book after receiving 360 degree feedback from employees, peers and my vice president. This volume provides practical actions for improving on the competencies identified in the assessment. I am currently using it to build a development action plan for 2009, as well as for the next few years as I work toward achieving my next career milestone of moving from middle management to the executive floor. while the book is described as providing development suggestions for TODAY's executives, I believe that you have to be exhibiting these behaviors before you are ready for that big promotion.
