The Next Level

Scott Eblin
Authors:
Scott Eblin

Much as Good to Great described what separates top companies from the rest, The Next Level: What Insiders Know about Executive Success shows executives what separates leadership success from failure at the next level. Every day, high performers are tapped to be executives and then left alone to figure out how to succeed in their new role. When this happens, most executives rely on strengths that served them well earlier in their careers. As executive coach Scott Eblin explains, this is why 40 percent of them fail. Moving successfully to the executive level requires knowing which behaviours and beliefs to let go, as well as which new ones to pick up. This confidence-building book outlines a program for success based on frank advice from accomplished senior executives around the world on what to do and, just as important, what to avoid. Like having a personal executive coach at your side, this valuable book shows you what to pick up and let go of to be successful at the next level. This fully revised edition of The Next Level is an essential addition to any leadership development or executive education toolkit.
