(Ebony Cover, B&W Interior) Everyone dreams about running a major corporation. But it isn’t easy. Change is constant, decisions can turn on a dime, and there’s always someone angling or conspiring to get your job. In Passport to the Corner Office, award-winning business editor and writer R.J. King offers turn-by-turn navigation for achieving success in the corporate, civic, and political worlds. Whether you’re charting a course to lead an executive team, a digital startup, a research laboratory, or a Hollywood studio, Mr. King offers proven methods for success, gleaned from hundreds of interviews with change leaders. By melding simple business principles with real-world applications, Mr. King explains how to continuously empower your career path — whether you’re a seasoned CEO, a newly minted executive, a young professional, or an aspiring student. You’ll also learn how to avoid embarrassing and potentially career-ending slip-ups like a botched apology, a badly mistaken assumption, or a misguided acquisition. What’s more, the book offers a Corporate Resource Guide that covers business etiquette skills, interview techniques, a formal dining diagram, and an organized listing of what to tip an executive driver, a five-star caterer, a hair salon stylist, a sommelier, and dozens of other service providers.
