Insightful [unwritten] rules for the corporate game
on August 29, 2012
Mr. Pearson does an excellent job painting a true picture of how executives are made in corporate America. Sponsorship IS the critical element, and it is discussed at length...including strategies to identify and secure a sponsor. My favorite aspects of the book were how to identify your X-Factor and form your "Employment Pyramid." I also appreciate the emphasis placed on ethics, morals, and sticking to the high road! This is a message more executives should understand and embrace. Finally, the importance of giving back is discussed as the factor which translates success into significance and this is well stated. If you are a recent graduate [either undergraduate or MBA], a mid-level manager looking to move forward, or an executive in need of some good reminders...this book is for you!
