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.

It is your proven playbook to thrive and win in an imperfect corporate world.

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!

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
