9780007432073: The Corner Office: How Top CEOs Made It and How You Can Too

Aspirational business book based on interviews with over 75 leading American CEOs.

The Corner Office draws together lessons, memorable stories, and eye-opening insights from chief executives like Steven Ballmer (Microsoft), Carol Bartz (Yahoo), Jeffrey Katzenberg (DreamWorks), and Alan Mulally (Ford), as Bryant reveals the keys to success in the business world, including the five qualities CEOs value most in their employees, and shows how executives at the top of their game get the most out of others.

For aspiring executives, of any age, The Corner Office offers perspectives that will help anyone who seeks to be a more effective leader and employee, and a path to future success.

Review:

"Compelling advice for the aspiring executive.... The conversational format makes these valuable lessons easy to comprehend and digest, and readers are left with a new understanding of leadership--why it's important, how these experts have worked to attain it, and how they can do the same."--"Publishers Weekly""Adam Bryant's "The""Corner Office" is a great service - practical, well-written, chock full of insight and wisdom. Reading this book is like joining a dinner table with some of the best leaders in America, listening in as a master conversationalist leads a spirited discussion you cannot forget. A wonderful creation!"--Jim Collins, author of "Good to Great" and co-author of "Built to Last"""The Corner Office" is a modern management masterpiece. Adam Bryant distills and weaves together hundreds of gems from some of the most successful and intriguing executives on the planet. The result is one of the most delightful, readable, and useful business books I have read in years
