Landing in the Executive Chair
How to Excel in the Hot SeateBook - 2011
In today's fast-paced, unprecedented, and unpredictable economy, many executives simply don’t know what to do. Conventional methods — which many never entirely understood in the first place — often don’t work during economic upheaval. Executives, especially CEOs, need something better. They need a guide that identifies the roadblocks and points out the landmines. In her more than 30 years of working with hundreds of executives, Dr. Linda Henman has observed the critical elements of success, both for the new leader and the one who aspires to the next level of success. In Landing in the Executive Chair, you’ll learn how to:· -Avoid the pitfalls and identify a clear plan for personal and organizational success. -Leverage the first months in a new executive position — that time of transition that promises opportunity and challenge, but also often brings a period of great vulnerability. -Create a competitive advantage, set the right tone, make effective decisions, keep talent inside your doors, and establish credibility — all while navigating unfamiliar and turbulent waters. As organizations expand and grow, the skills that led to success often won't sustain further development in a more complex, high-stakes environment. Present and future executives need more. They need Landing in the Executive Chair.
