Enhancing Your Executive Edge By Kim Zoller and Kerry Preston
Your technical skills may get you the job, but your interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence will get you the promotion. In Enhancing Your Executive Edge, Kim Zoller and Kerry Preston provide the specific tools you need to make the jump from middle or upper management to an executive-level position. It’s not about being among the standouts in a company. It’s about being the standout.
Zoller and Preston emphasize the importance of self-awareness in relationships with colleagues, clients, and executives—including first impressions, body language, and strategic communication. Competence, passion, and hard work open doors. But when you’re going for the very top spot, the competition increases exponentially—so you need to differentiate yourself. This book is designed to help you develop that special quality few people possess. Set yourself apart and offer value where the competition doesn’t by enhancing your executive edge.
