New York Times writer Adam Bryant takes us through “candid insights” from over 70 CEOs on the keys to being a highly productive and effective leader. By interviewing these successful leaders on how they do their jobs and getting highly valuable lessons about what they learned as they climbed the ranks, Bryant provides “memorable stories and eye-opening insight”. Leaders interviewed include the CEOs from Yahoo!, Microsoft, DreamWorks, Ford, and many more. Bryant reveals his five essential personality traits that any high performer would exhibit, and he is able to back up his claims because the CEOs he interviews themselves look for and value these traits in workers for their companies. For anyone aspiring to becoming a “rising star” and separate themselves from their colleagues, and for any aspiring executive, this book offers a well-led path to research. As Bryant puts it, “…These aren’t theories. They come from decades of collective experience of top executives who have learned firsthand what it takes to succeed.”
