    A useful guide to becoming a respected adviser to senior executives

    James Lukaszewski offers some guidance to people who want to make a career out of advising CEOs and other key executive managers. The author practices what he preaches by keeping the book focused, positive and concise. In the first part, he teaches you what matters to CEOs, why and how they think, and how to become an asset to their work. In the second part of the book, Lukaszewski devotes a chapter to each of the seven traits a successful CEO adviser needs. The list covers a combination of personal traits, patterns of thought, and skill at communicating with executives. This book will be most useful in helping you break away from a staff view of your company, so you can learn to evaluate situations from a CEO¿s perspective. getAbstract thinks this outlook will be useful to anyone who wants to be an effective adviser.
