Corner Office Rules is essential reading for anyone who thinks
they've got what it takes to rise to the top of the corporate
ladder. Through an engaging series of real life stories told by
today's top professionals, readers will learn the tools they need
to work their way from middle level management to that always
envied executive leadership position. Welcome to the world of
senior leadership As you negotiate the often treacherous territory
of corporate responsibility, Corner Office Rules provides the
guidance you need to become the kind of leader you expect. First
and foremost, you will learn that allowing unrealistic expectations
to dictate your agenda will quickly result in never pleasing
anyone, solving anything, or delivering any results. To perform
effectively as a senior leader, you must accept the reality that
you'll never have all the answers Leadership roles come with all
sorts of titles: CEO, CFO, president, executive vice president,
senior vice president or partner. Or perhaps you strive to be
executive director, principal, pastor, dean, captain, coach,
business owner, or chairman. Or why not mayor, governor, or
senator? Whatever the title in front of your name, it all means the
same thing-you are now in charge. The realities of such
responsibility are laid bare in the pages of Corner Office Rules
along with the necessary tools to handle the enormous expectations
that come both from others...and from yourself. While other
self-help business books get bogged down with lofty business
"philosophies" that don't amount to much in the real word, Corner
Office Rules empowers readers to take control of their own
corporate fate. Learn what it's really like to have everyone
looking at you for guidance, even as you face problems with no
solutions, questions with no answers, and demands with no
alternatives. With the failure or success of an entire organization
resting on your shoulders, how do you juggle it all? Learn what it
takes to become a leader in your field with the guidance of two of
today's most prominent business leaders. Author Keith R. Wyche,
former president and CEO of ACME Markets, has over thirty years of
experience working with some of corporate America's most
distinguished companies such as AT&T, IBM, and Pitney Bowes.
Corner Office Rules is the long anticipated follow up to his 2008
guide, Good is Not Enough: And Other Unwritten Rules for Minority
Professionals. Wyche has been named "CEO of the Year" in 2010 by
the Executive 50 Organization and is an independent director on the
board of WMS Industries. Co-author Renee B. Booth, PhD, is a
nationally recognized leadership development, assessment, and
motivation expert with more than twenty years of experience. She
currently serves as consultant, coach, and advisor for executive
levels of various organizations. In 1999, Dr. Booth founded
Leadership Solutions, Inc., an organization that concentrates on
issues such as talent assessment, executive coaching, team
building, and the design of leadership development curricula. They

Group, and Bayer reach their individual management goals. Together,
