Corporate success. Everyone wants it, but few know the secrets of achieving it. Corporate Confidential is an honest look at the unspoken truths surrounding success and failure in corporate America. Fifty senior-level executives disclose the candid realities of reaching the executive suite, including how:

  • Refusing to play politics is professional suicide
  • Pursuing work/life balance will label you as a "B" player
  • Women unknowingly continue to sabotage their success So controversial that some executives would only participate on the promise of anonymity, Corporate Confidential provides simple, candid answers on what it really takes to achieve success in today's corporate world.
