Fast Track to the Top Summary

Fast Track to the Top: 10 Skills for Career Success by Ros Taylor

Everyone desires success at work - the challenge is how to achieve it. Fast Track to the Top aims to bridge that gap by guiding you through the necessary characteristics for reaching the top of a given profession and achieving long-term success through looking at the skills, attitudes, backgrounds and working habits of high achievers. Fast Track to the Top is based on rigorous analysis of the skills and attitudes of 80 dynamic business leaders, including Bob Reid, Rocco Forte, Sir Richard Greenbury, and Stella Rimmington. It identifies similar traits that they share - "The Ten commandments for Success". Ros Taylor and John Humphrey guide you through the practical programmes and exercises in each of these key areas: problem-solving; achieving results; the winner mind-set; emotional intelligence; team building; stress management; a love of change; self-awareness; negotiation skills; confidence. The book includes extracts from interviews with leading executives, including: Dawn Airey - Channel 5 Broadcasting, David Campbell - Ginger Productions, Nicholas Coleridge - Conde Nast, and Charles Dunstone - Carphone Warehouse. With questionnaires, "tips from the top", and key point summaries, Fast Track to the Top will enable you to profile your skills, assess your potential and improve your performance in the key areas identified. Readers are invited to analyse their own personality and compare their profile with those of the successful executives, enabling them to discover the requirements for their success and brush up on the necessary skills. An invaluable guide to the necessary characteristics for reaching the top and achieving long-term success, Fast Track to the Top will help you to attain your goals and fulfil your full potential.
