If you think you have it all figured out, think again.
The road to the corner office is long, grueling, and full of pitfalls. And once you make it inside, there’s no guarantee you’ll stay. Even a simple oversight, such as a botched apology, can cause untold harm. Years from now, as you reflect back on your business career, will it resemble a glorious sunset or a Category 5 hurricane?
Passport to the Corner Office takes you on a journey with some of the world’s most accomplished corporate leaders, business experts, and change agents. Author R.J. King, an award-winning editor and writer, offers lessons on success and failure gleaned from more than 20 years of observing, interviewing, and writing about companies large and small.
The list of interviewees includes Bill Ford, chairman of Ford Motor Co., Dan Gilbert, founder and chairman of Quicken Loans, Cindy Pasky, president and CEO of Strategic Staffing Solutions, and Josh Linkner, managing member of Detroit Venture Partners. More than anything else, this book provides you with turn-by-turn navigation to reach and maintain your seat inside the corner office.
