Key advice for executives

I regard this title as the most valuable self-development download from Audible that I have read in the past year. I wish I had read this book years ago. This is head-and-shoulders above most other business books.

Deborah Benton promotes six practices to achieve and maintain executive charisma:
1. Be the first to initiate.
2. Expect and give acceptance to maintain esteem.
3. Ask questions and ask favors.
4. Stand tall, straight and smile.
5. Be human, humorous and hands-on.
6. Slow down, shut up, and listen.

Her explanations of this somewhat counter-intuitive guidance is engaging and makes good sense once it is described. Since I have been practicing these pointers, my popularity and influence at the office has soared.

I guess I had a sense of these qualities among the people I admired (and on good days, myself), but I thank Ms. Benton for codifying and explaining them.

The narrator, Anna Fields, has a superb voice: business-like and at the same time warm, and very listenable. She places the correct emphasis on words and phrases like a professional actress -- perhaps she is -- and gives a five-star performance.

Highest recommendation for those who wish to advance in their managerial careers.

I agree with the previous review - one of the best downloads on Audible. This book is full of practical advice on business life. Cooperation - not confrontation is the key. Narration is excellent - head and shoulders above many of the Author narrated titles.
