Book Review - Getting From the Cubicle to the Corner Office
This book reminds me of an excellent cook book. It is filled with how to recipies and illustrations to empower you to achieve success. The author Joel Weiss is a guy that has gone places and has acheived great things and has the credentials to say what he does in this book.
In this little and light book Joel reflects and focuses on the little things that can make the difference to your career and can help you to get to the job and position you really want.
The book is made up of a bunch of short chapters and looks at a different aspect of the business life and provides clear how to hints and thoughts on how to be a better manager, co-worker and employee.
Topics covered include - communication, reporting techniques, how to get a promotion. Short punchy chapters that get straight to the point and leave you with clear and precise directions.
My overall impression - this is a great little book filled with helpful hints and easy to understand directions. This is not a book that deals with the vague ideas and possibilites of strategy and management theory but is written (just like this blog) for the everyday people out there who want to be the best that they can be (without the bs).
It is a book however that if you should choose to heed the lessons will assist you to get ahead.
