Overview

Why Should the Boss Listen to You?

Written by crisis and management leadership expert James Lukaszewski—named by PR Week as one of twenty-two "crunch-time counselors who should be on the speed dial in a crisis"—Why Should the Boss Listen to You? outlines the disciplines that anyone who counsels a CEO, or wants to, should embrace including systematic, pragmatic, and sensible ingredients and processes for getting to and working at the highest levels, and having maximum impact as a trusted advisor.

This is a book about gaining influence and becoming a key trusted advisor. It is for everyone who advises leaders and senior managers (accounting, finance, human resources, IT, law, marketing, public relations, security, and strategic planning) and for outside consultants in these functional staff areas. It's also for operations people yearning to finally be heard and heeded by their boss.

In this important book, Lukaszewski identifies and explains the crucial seven disciplines that trusted advisors must master to get and keep the confidence of leaders:

  • Be trustworthy

  • Be verbal visionaries

  • Develop a management perspective

  • Think strategically

  • Be a window to tomorrow

  • Advise constructively

  • Show the boss how to use your advice

As the author explains, a great advisor looks over the entire field of leadership interests. He explores the barriers, threats, constraints, options, and opportunities to offer powerful, sensible, and wise counsel and recommendations.

You are holding a handbook for becoming a trusted advisor, and a tool for leaders and bosses who employ consultants to teach advisors how to consult effectively, how to set appropriate expectations for the advice provided, and to teach advisors how to better serve.

    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.
