More Information

Description:

This ground-breaking work offers access to the boardroom, and advice on getting noticed, networking, persuasion and mastering the art of quid pro quo. A professor of management and highly sought-after consultant, Kathleen Kelley Reardon has worked with many of the nation's leading corporations. Drawing on interviews with executives from Fortune 500 companies, she has compiled essential advice on how to break into the inner circle of power at the top of the corporate ladder. Many books cover practical business knowledge, but few address the issue of interpersonal skills. The ever-changing circle of power within a corporation may not necessarily follow the same guidelines it publicly professes. The most talented employee isn't always the one promoted; there is an intangible quality the upper echelon look for. It may not come naturally, but it can be learned. Kathleen Kelley Reardon's guide to organizational politics gives you the navigational skills needed to reach the top. Narrator Ruth Ann Phimister will leave you feeling as if you've had an enlightning conversation with a caring mentor.
