Publisher's Summary

Stealing the Corner Office is mandatory listening for smart, hardworking managers who always wonder why their seemingly incompetent superiors are so successful. It is a unique collection of controversial but highly effective tactics for middle managers and aspiring executives who want to learn the real secrets for moving up the corporate ladder. Unlike virtually all other business books - which are based on the assumption that corporations are logical and fair - Stealing the Corner Office explores the unconventional tactics people less competent than you use to get ahead and stay ahead. It is your proven playbook to thrive and win in an imperfect corporate world.
Stealing the Corner Office will teach you:

How incompetent people so often get ahead, and what you can learn from them
How to make universally flawed corporate policies work in your favor
Why showing too much passion for your ideas can be career suicide
Why delivering results should never be your highest priority
These and many more controversial tactics will change the way you look at your career and how you manage projects, people, and priorities. Apply the 10 principles in Stealing the Corner Office and watch your career take off!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Great advice and strategies, but too many examples

Any additional comments?

This audio book was full of great advice and strategies for winning in the work place. It explains to you what works and what doesn't for getting promotions, but does this through the excessive use of example stories instead of just giving up facts and straight up advice. So you need to be able to read between the lines to get the most from the book.

To me it got tiresome listening to story after story, but it was worth it in the end for the immediate work place improvement I acquired.

I wish I read this book 10 years ago.

I work in a big corporation myself and can see so many parralels between the book and the company I work with. I was playing against myself for so many years, pity I haven't read this book before.

Stand-out book on getting ahead at work!

Would you consider the audio edition of Stealing the Corner Office to be better than the print version?

The delivery is quite humorous, so there is a positive from the audio version.

What did you like best about this story?

After listening to this book I realised I was already doing some of the things discussed, now I know why they make a difference. It's a definite thought provoker... I've already recommended it to a few choice colleagues... but not too many! :-)

What does Dana Hickox bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Yes the humour comes thru which makes it stand out more than the other business / self help books I've listened to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - and I did pretty much
