The Next Level
IN THIS SUMMARY
40 percent of new executives fail in their positions within eighteen months of promotion. Could it be that CEOs and executive teams have chosen the wrong person for the job nearly half the time? Scott Eblin doesn’t think so. Based on his experience as both and executive and a senior leadership coach, Eblin believes the move to the executive level is the toughest transition in anyone’s career path. Performance expectations for new executives are extremely high, but are rarely explicitly stated; and an entirely new set of behaviors and beliefs are called for. The skills and competencies that drive success at lower levels will not necessarily sustain success at the executive level. In fact, some of the very skills that ensure advancement into the executive arena can be and are destructive once one advances into his or her executive suite.
Whether you are a seasoned executive or on your way up the corporate ladder, The Next Level contains a wealth of information and suggestions to improve your performance and increase your comfort level and effectiveness.
