    Best-selling author and executive coach D.A. Benton presents a six-step process to help you acquire the powerful executive demeanor necessary to progressively move up in a corporation. Drawing upon her experience in coaching clients at top companies worldwide, Benton explains executive charisma, its importance to corporate success, and then outlines a proven six-step approach for learning how to think, act, and relate to others like an executive.

    Overall

    I regard this title as the most valuable self-development download from Audible that I have read in the past year. I wish I had read this book years ago. This is head-and-shoulders above most other business books.

    Deborah Benton promotes six practices to achieve and maintain executive charisma:
    1. Be the first to initiate.
    2. Expect and give acceptance to maintain esteem.
    3. Ask questions and ask favors.
    4. Stand tall, straight and smile.
    5. Be human, humorous and hands-on.
    6. Slow down, shut up, and listen.

    Her explanations of this somewhat counter-intuitive guidance is engaging and makes good sense once it is described. Since I have been practicing these pointers, my popularity and influence at the office has soared.

    I guess I had a sense of these qualities among the people I admired (and on good days, myself), but I thank Ms. Benton for codifying and explaining them.

    The narrator, Anna Fields, has a superb voice: business-like and at the same time warm, and very listenable. She places the correct emphasis on words and phrases like a professional actress -- perhaps she is -- and gives a five-star performance.

    Highest recommendation for those who wish to advance in their managerial careers.
