Stealing the Corner Office is mandatory reading for smart, hardworking managers who always wonder why their seemingly incompetent superiors are so successful. It is a unique collection of controversial but highly effective tactics for middle managers and aspiring executives who want to learn the real secrets for moving up the corporate ladder. Unlike virtually all other business books--which are based on the assumption that corporations are logical and fair--Stealing the Corner Office explores the unconventional tactics people less competent than you use to get ahead and stay ahead. It is your proven playbook to thrive and win in an imperfect corporate world.

Stealing the Corner Office will teach you:

  • How incompetent people so often get ahead, and what you can learn from them.

  • How to make universally flawed corporate policies work in your favor.

  • Why showing too much passion for your ideas can be career suicide.

  • Why delivering results should never be your highest priority.

    These and many more controversial tactics will change the way you look at your career and how you manage projects, people, and priorities. Apply the 10 principles in Stealing the Corner Office and watch your career take off!

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.
