"Whether you're a corporate newcomer or an entrenched executive, Stealing the Corner Office delivers a no-nonsense playbook that breaks the mold of conventional wisdom. Reid's unique style makes for a thought-provoking and entertaining read." (Yves Dupuis, Vice President of Sales, Jabra)
I work in a big corporation myself and can see so many parralels between the book and the company I work with. I was playing against myself for so many years, pity I haven't read this book before.
Definitely a good book for people who wish to climb the corporate ladder. It has a narrow focus on corporate success, so don't look here if you want to start a business or learn about personal finance. Some of the pieces of advice seem to contradict each other, but if you're smart you can pick out the techniques that will work in your workplace.
This was a great book! It's straight to the point, succinct with its messaging. I am going to listen to it again!
The author provides many important points I wish I would have learned in college. Most readers will be able to identify with the different types of individuals the author discusses in the book. The author explains how these people get ahead in their careers and what we can learn from them. Great read!!
Loved it. Solid game plan to move forward and advance my career. Every but of it was a solid depiction of a fee organizations I currently see.
This audio book was full of great advice and strategies for winning in the work place. It explains to you what works and what doesn't for getting promotions, but does this through the excessive use of example stories instead of just giving up facts and straight up advice. So you need to be able to read between the lines to get the most from the book.
To me it got tiresome listening to story after story, but it was worth it in the end for the immediate work place improvement I acquired.
"Stand-out book on getting ahead at work!"
The delivery is quite humorous, so there is a positive from the audio version.
After listening to this book I realised I was already doing some of the things discussed, now I know why they make a difference. It's a definite thought provoker... I've already recommended it to a few choice colleagues... but not too many! :-)
Yes the humour comes thru which makes it stand out more than the other business / self help books I've listened to.
Yes - and I did pretty much
