Why do some managers get it while others don't? In I Get It!, organizational psychologist Neil Witmer explores how top management views the performance of managers, directors, and VPs. With an informal, readable style, Witmer explains that getting it requires no private club or secret sauce. He outlines 24 simplified fundamentals that CEOs badly want their people to master and apply in all directions--inward, upward, sideward, downward, and outward. Witmer provides numerous examples, stories, and worksheets to help readers develop a "signature style," using best practices in a way that is most natural for them. When you get it, you exceed expectations and gain approving nods from those who make decisions about your career.
