Brendan Reid is an accomplished business consultant and marketing
executive who has built his career by breaking with corporate
convention. For nearly 20 years he has studied the
too-often-ignored human side of corporate dynamics that create the
imperfect corporate world we work in. Unlike most business writers,
who focus on the righteous side of business and career management,
Reid delves into
the more unconventional tactics people use to get ahead and stay ahead. In Stealing the Corner Office he draws on his experiences as a struggling middle manager and the startling revelations that became
the foundation for the career strategy that catapulted him into the executive ranks. Reid lives in Toronto, Ontario.
Whether you're a corporate newcomer or an entrenched executive,
Stealing the Corner Office delivers a no-nonsense playbook
that breaks the mold of conventional wisdom. Reid's unique style
makes for a thought-provoking and entertaining read.
--Yves Dupuis, vice president of sales, Jabra Stealing the Corner Office is a must-read for MBA students, young corporate managers, and top-level executives.
