Maximize your chances to get promoted to the executive level

As predictable career paths have become extinct in mostorganizations, managers aspiring to the C-level job are left totheir own devices to determine how to advance their careers. Evenin companies committed to talent development, guidance to aspiringexecutives is often vague and contradictory. This happens,executive coach John Beeson argues, because executive promotionsare made based on the decision makers' intuitive sense ofwhether or not a manager can succeed at higher levels within theorganization. Beeson decodes these leadership criteria--theunwritten rules--that companies use to make decisions about whogets promoted and who doesn't, and identifies the six core"selection factors" that are imperative for success at theexecutive level

  • Demonstrating strategic skills
  • Building a strong management team
  • Managing implementation
  • Exhibiting the capacity for innovation and change
  • Working across organizational boundaries
  • Projecting executive presence

Filled with stories of managers who successfully climbed up theexecutive ladder-and some who struggled-The Unwritten Rulesis an invaluable resource for aspiring executives.
