I’m very excited to announce my first book: Stealing the Corner Office. It will hit stores May 19, 2014. For anyone anxious to get a copy, you can pre-order one on Amazon and get $5.50 off.
This book is the result of more than 15 years of mistakes. For most of my career I’m afraid to say I did all the wrong things to get ahead. I believed talent and hard work and results orientation were the keys to success. They are not. I watched in frustration as so many seemingly incompetent managers around me got promotion after promotion while my career went nowhere.
Admittedly I spent an inordinate amount of time bemoaning the unfairness of it all.
“Why do these guys get special treatment?”
“Why should I have to play office politics to get ahead?’
“If I’m really smarter than they are, why does nobody seem to care?”
About seven years ago I realized I was asking all the wrong questions. You may well be too. Instead of complaining about Incompetent Executives – we should be learning from them.
My book, Stealing the Corner Office is for managers and young executives who can’t understand they can’t get ahead in spite of their talent and intellect. Embrace the seven strategies of the Incompetent Executive and watch your career take off.
