How To Become CEO



How to lead and succeed in business - the surprising secrets of success brought together in one book

In How to Become CEO, consultant Jeffrey Fox has written an insightful book of traits to develop for aspiring CEOs, or for anyone who wants to get ahead in business. Open this book to any page and find a short, provocative piece of brutally honest advice written in a conversational tone. Each of the seventy-five 'rules' focuses on a specific action that should be taken, a trait that needs to be developed, or things to avoid. The words never and always are used frequently. These are smart, no-nonsense business messages that are meant to be revisited in your rise to the top. This is a book of hard-headed idealism that will empower you to develop leadership qualities: vision, persistence, integrity, and respect for superiors, subordinates, peers, and self. Anyone looking to climb the corporate ladder will be grateful for Fox's direct, pithy advice - the essentials to follow if you want to reach the top.

Jenny Wagner

Jenny Wagner lives with her husband, their dog and three lazy cats in a small Queensland farmhouse that looks like a witch's cottage. The garden is full of possums, lizards, goannas, frogs, scrub turkeys and other birds. Sometimes a couple of wallabies come to visit, too.

Jenny likes writing best of all, unless it's going badly, in which case she hates it. She also likes going for walks, listening to classical music, studying languages, doing cryptic crossword puzzles, getting together with friends and putting off the vacuuming. She likes two-minutes noodles with tomato paste stirred in, brussels sprouts and good coffee. She doesn't like racism, cruelty to animals or people, or getting up early.

As well as her best-selling novels featuring the nimbin, Jenny Wagner has also written several very successful children's picture books.

The Bunyip of Berkeley's Creek and John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat both won the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Ward (Picture Books) and are widely considered to be classics.
