Overview

To succeed in business today, you must be smart, competitive, resilient, tenacious, and fearless. In short, you need a good, old-fashioned backbone.

In How to Grow a Backbone, Susan Marshall, a top business consultant and former executive, outlines skills that readers can develop and perfect to become stronger, more confident, and more influential on the job. Using straight talk laced with wry humor, she draws upon actual business situations from a variety of companies and industries to show how a strong backbone can change not only the outcome of the situation, but also how one is perceived.

Each chapter is filled with “backbone-building exercises” for confidence, competence, and risk taking. Her top ten backbone basics include:

·        Turning meetings into discovery sessions

·        Getting wise to the secrets messages people’s eyes will reveal

·        Deciding what you think and saying so

·        Getting the big picture of your organization

How to Grow a Backbone will teach you how to stop yourself mid-whine, lose the excuses, and take command of your future.
