From the Inside Flap
Scott Aylward and Pattye Moore were young professionals in marketing and advertising. They had nothing more than undergraduate degrees from state universities----no MBAs, fancy connections, or leadership experience. Yet they each quickly rose to the top of their respective companies. Midway through their careers, they began a business partnership that was so powerful it led to record growth for both their companies and careers.
Confessions from the Corner Office explains how these young professionals reached the pinnacle of success in their industries by relying on gut instinct, rather than the standard business school leadership practices. Now, they've condensed all their firsthand business experience into fifteen leadership instincts that, when properly developed and nurtured, will make you a better and more successful leader----while leading you right to the top of the corporate ladder.
These fifteen instincts, which the authors call "essential Corner Office Instincts," make up the soft skills of leadership: building strong and respectful relationships, motivating and managing, and leading with dignity and respect. The authors also explain the power and career benefits of finding and nurturing a relationship with a corporate soul mate. They don't teach these skills in business school, but they're essential for lasting success. Confessions from the Corner Office will show you how to develop and nurture these instincts and turn them into a lasting competitive advantage.
Drawing on their own instinctive, successful leadership experiences, Aylward and Moore identify seven Attitude Instincts and eight Performance Instincts. Both types of instincts are required to make it to the top. Each chapter introduces an instinct and presents real-life business examples, personal stories, and probing questions before offering advice on developing and honing that instinct.
Whether you work in a big corporation or run your own business, whether you want to move up from the bottom rung or secure your place at the top, this is the ultimate guide to the leadership skills you need to climb all the way to your corner office--however you define it--and stay there.
