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 have helped clients such as The Vanguard Group, Lincoln Financial Group, and Bayer reach their individual management goals. Together, these two visionaries have produced an insightful how-to book that will help lay the foundation for your successful career.

Welcome to the world of being a "millennial". You are part of the most talked about, written about, and yet least understood generation in modern history! You were able to program a VCR and television remote control before you could speak. You were taught using the latest technology, distance learning, and online classes. Socially, you embraced social media and social networking when most of the adult world couldn't spell Google or Twitter. And yet, you find yourself misunderstood at best, and marginalized at worst. However, the reality is, that millennials possess some of the most innovative, and creative minds in the workplace. Unlike previous generations who adhered to militaristic hierarchies, "me too" group think, and chose to "live to work", you have decided that organizational layers create unproductive barriers, "group think" stifles creativity, and that living to work leads to burnout. In your world, your job is an extension of who you are. Your co-workers are an extension of your social network, and you choose to "work to live" so that you can enjoy all life has to offer! But in reality, you have a real problem. Most of today’s leaders are from another time and place. Your bosses are baby-boomers or Gen-Xers (think Baby-boomer wannabes), and in some cases, "Traditionalists" (think Grandma and Grandpa). They can't seem to understand why you act and think how you do? They struggle to see you as equals in decision-making, and can be intimidated by your grasp of technology. But until you are running the organization, you MUST learn how to work with, through and beside them. This book serves to enhance your ability to succeed by exploring common myths and perceptions regarding Millennials. You will see yourselves through the eyes of others, to better understand and ultimately overcome these misperceptions. Additionally, it will force you to look at yourself in the mirror to uncover some of your "blind-spots" and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Written by a Millennial with editorial insights by her Baby-boomer father, the hope is that after reading "Swag Is Not Enough", you will be armed with insights and lessons to take your career to new heights.

When it was published in 1982, Business Week called it a book "packed with insights that might otherwise remain hidden for years." The New York Times Book Review called it: "A thoroughly readable book of immediate interest to average readers as well as specialists in business administration, psychology and social and cultural history." Black Life in Corporate America became an immediate bestseller and was one of the most widely reviewed books of the year. The authors were asked by almost every graduate business school in the nation to create and teach a course based on the book’s insights. They taught their course for two terms at the Yale School of Organization and Management, making it the first course in the nation in multicultural management.
