Summary Description

What does it take to reach the top in business?  How can you inspire the people you lead?  Adam Bryant interviewed more than 70 CEOs to ask them how they do their jobs and what they learned as they rose through the ranks. 

In our summary of The Corner Office:  Indispensable and Unexpected Lessons from CEOs on How to Lead and Succeed, you’ll discover the valuable lessons that Bryant elicited from the world’s top business leaders, including the CEOs of such companies as Best Buy, Cisco Systems, Continental Airlines, Disney, Duke Energy, eBay, Ford Motor Company, IDEO, Mastercard, Microsoft, Xerox, Yahoo, and Zappos.

Bryant is the deputy national editor of The New York Times and writes the popular “Corner Office” feature in the newspaper’s Sunday Business section.

This summary clearly explains the keys to success in the business world, including the five essential personality traits that all high performers exhibit – qualities that the CEOs themselves value most and that separate the rising stars from their colleagues. 

According to Warren Bennis, distinguished professor of business at the University of Southern California, “This is the best and perhaps only book I would recommend to any aspiring or sitting leader for its wise and practical distillation of lessons for exemplary leadership.  It is the best, most reliable GPS/road map currently available for successful leadership.”

Whether you are already a CEO or you aspire to reach a position in the corner office, this summary will teach you what it takes to be a better leader.
