Overview

Praise for FROM THE SANDBOX TO THE CORNER OFFICE

"From the Sandbox to the Corner Office offers remarkable insights about the ways our childhood and early life shapes who we become at work. This illuminating book not only helps us understand the recurring patterns in our leadership but also shows us, as parents, how our behavior at home prepares our children to contribute their very best in the workplace."
—Kate Ludeman, Executive Coach and coauthor of Alpha Male Syndrome: Curb the Belligerence, Channel the Brilliance

"Sandbox is a terrific book about overcoming something we almost dare not name today: adversity. Today's adults know little of it, parents are certainly terrified by it, children are not allowed to experience it. But the leaders in Tahmincioglu's book often got where they were only because they were allowed to triumph through it. Sandbox is a much needed wake-up call for our culture!"
—Betsy Hart, author of It Takes a Parent: How the Culture of Pushover Parenting Is Hurting Our Kids—and What to Do About It

"There is no clear path to becoming a great business leader. You need to find your own way based on your own individuality. And you need to learn from the lessons of those who have succeeded. Ms. Tahmincioglu's interviews with the country's most impressive leaders give an unparalleled collection of such lessons."
—George N. Hatsopoulos, founder and former CEO, Thermo Electron Corporation

"What I really like about this book is that we get to see real leaders up close and as whole people and so understand better the many and varied sources of influence on their progress. We come to understand better that learning leadership doesn't happen only through career experiences; it's the result of a wide range of life experiences from which smart and sensitive people garner wisdom they then put to good effect."
—Stew Friedman

Practice Professor of Management, Director, Wharton Work/Life Integration Project, The Wharton School University of Pennsylvania

    If you have children buy this book.

    I read a lot and I have to say this book is one of the best I've read in quite a while. The author has done an excellent job of getting into the mind of many of todays leaders. I find the information revealed in this book especially helpful in guiding decisions I make daily with regards to my tween and teenage children. This book has helped me see leaders in a new lite and I refer to it often when guiding my children through school and other relationships they have outside our home. Especially when they are in, or are considering, leadership roles in the various groups they are members of. Highly recommended.
