Overview

If you are interested in reading this book, it is no doubt because you either aspire to join the elite executive ranks, or you are interested in maintaining your lofty position, or lastly, you have suffered a set-back and want to come back with vigor. This book is your road-map for taking charge of your executive career and aspirations. You have the power to create significant positive change in your life. There are really only two choices to make when you approach those crossroads and that is that either you can change You, the "Me, Myself, and I" facet, or you can change It "The Challenge". The most important thing we can do in life is have a plan. Our plan should be adaptable and that same plan will serve as the framework for our success throughout our lives. Don't believe for an instance that your aspirations are not achievable because you would be mistaken. While it may seem that for some people you may know, everything seems to be easy, virtually handed to them on a silver platter, but the reality is that with the appropriate amount of concerted effort and strategic, albeit cunning maneuvers, we have the absolute potential to achieve everything we include in what I will refer to as your personal career progression project plan. The challenge you will master after applying this framework is to secure, maintain or reclaim that executive level corporate position.

    Excellent resource

    After reading Securing the C Level, by Michael D. Peters, I found I could hardly put it down. This book is like a gold mine - like finding a little gold nugget after years of searching for some good advice, like having a private lunch with someone on that upper echelon and picking their brain about the ins and outs of how to get a job like that. Not only is it very insightful into the preparations needed to get to that level, but it also offers insight to anyone in a management position. Michael gives sage advice on navigating the cultural waters, how to spend your first 100 days for maximum benefit, how to groom your personal brand, and many other interesting and invaluable tidbits about achieving and maintaining that life at the top of the corporate ladder. Parts of the book I found most interesting were dealing with planning your career - Michael provides some awesome and creative tips to chart the waters of executive career planning - especially if your career benefits from the achievement of credentials. Michael also talks in-depth about life as a C-level executive, the sometimes-treacherous waters, and how to successfully navigate them. As an MBA and a JD, Michael's background and experience allows him to provide a wealth of practical and insightful advice, advice which anyone can and should be following if they want to follow someone like Michael's footsteps. Highly recommended book for career planning - a very interesting and actionable read!
