Recommendation

Debra A. Benton’s book is a guide for making a better impression, exercising power effectively, and developing improved personal relationships at work. In any corporate culture, the goal is paradoxical: you want to fit in and stand out, at the same time. Based on her experience in working with business leaders as a coach, trainer, and consultant, Benton offers a variety of techniques that emphasize personal presentation and communication skills. While the book will appeal primarily to managers, these skills are useful to anyone who wants to get ahead. Benton combines a lively writing style with effective examples. The book includes useful summaries at the end of each chapter and a brief appendix. getAbstract.com recommends it as an excellent book for anyone in a corporate culture, although there is some overlap with topics from Benton’s more recent work, How to Think Like a CEO.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How good leaders both fit in and stand out;
  • Why the first impression is what counts; and
  • How to make a great first impression.
