Publisher's Summary

Dozens of top CEOs reveal their candid insights on the keys to effective leadership and the qualities that set high performers apart.

What does it take to reach the top in business and to inspire others? Adam Bryant of The New York Times decided to answer this and other questions by sitting down with more than 70 CEOs and asking them how they do their jobs and the most important lessons they learned as they rose through the ranks. Over the course of these extraordinary interviews, they shared memorable stories and eye-opening insights.

The Corner Office draws together lessons from chief executives such as Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), Carol Bartz (Yahoo), Jeffrey Katzenberg (DreamWorks), and Alan Mulally (Ford), from which Bryant has crafted an original work that reveals the keys to success in the business world, including the five essential personality traits that all high performers exhibit—qualities that the CEOs themselves value most and that separate the rising stars from their colleagues. Bryant also demystifies the art of leadership and shows how executives at the top of their game get the most out of others.

Leadership is not a one-size-fits-all skill, and these CEOs offer different perspectives that will help anyone who seeks to be a more effective leader and employee. For aspiring executives—of all ages—The Corner Office offers a path to future success.

    "Common Sense Reminder"

    The narrator keeps it lively so the book does not get dull. I find the information in it very basic, but a very good reminder. Sometimes we need to hear what we know over and over again, to remind us of what we know and bring it back to the forefront so we can act on it. This book helps to do just that. I wish it spent more time on leadership principles, and less on management. I think CEO's really need to practice great leadership and this book fell a bit short in that area.

    "Like an interview anthology"

    The book is really a compilation of snippets of interviews with CEOs, grouped together by subject. He focuses on CEO's of different industries, from Macy's to EBay to Yum Brands, so the variety helps make it a book with advice people of all careers can relate to. Some of the CEOs he interviews aren't ones that I consider full of wisdom, but despite that I found it to be a good listen.
