An expert management coach with over thirty years of experience helping professionals get to the next stages of their careers, identifies—and helps readers break—the 12 unconscious habits and behaviors that are holding them back from the corner office. About the Book For more than 30 years, Robert W. Goldfarb has advised and coached managers on five continents in organizations of every type who got to a certain level of success in their careers and then stalled. They were smart, had the right experience and a good track record, and had put in the time and energy to get them to where they were. But something was holding them back from getting to the highest level of management, and despite their obvious intelligence, they couldn't tell what it was. Now, in the tradition of What Got You Here Won't Get You There, Robert Golfarb isolates the 12 top behaviors that mid- to upper-level managers exhibit at work that keep them from getting to the corner office. Some of these traits—a drive for results, strong knowledge of their industries, and networking with their peers—may have gotten them where they were, but need to be altered and adapted in order for them to get to the higher levels of management. The book is organized in an ingenious "What You Do" and "What Others See" structure, helping readers truly understand how their well-intentioned behaviors can wind up sabotaging their careers. Using case histories and actual examples from corporations, along with specific, actionable strategies for breaking these bad behaviors, Robert Goldfarb will help professionals everywhere break through their career plateaus and break into the corner office. These self-defeating behaviors are: Not demonstrating their true personal integrity. Not taking enough time to make sure their boss looks good. A laser-like focus on getting the job done well without appreciating the contributions of others. Using too much humor to build camaraderie and to foster collegial work environments. Lacking real passion for change. Relying solely on intellectual analysis with little reliance on “gut” feelings Focusing on problems rather than solutions A reluctance to properly manage former peers and supervisors. Under-appreciating the enormous value of diversity in the workplace. Not fully acknowledging the contributions of others on their teams. Always swinging for the fences and winning every battle, instead of taking a long range view of the situation.

"You cannot win without a workplace where women and men have equal opportunities, equal input, and equal power." —Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company On almost a daily basis, we read stories in the news about high-profile male leaders, CEOs, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs harassing and acting inappropriately toward the women with whom they work. Following such revelations, these men generally lose their jobs, and their companies lose valuable female talent, customers/clients, and their reputations. And, although we regularly hear stories about the "bro culture" that obstructs women's progress and creates hostile work environments for them, we haven't heard as much about the efforts of good men who want to change the in-office behavior of their teams and companies so that they and women they work with can realize their full potential and their businesses can thrive. This book teaches men and managers how to respond in these situations and how to lead by example. In WE: Men, Women, and the Decisive Formula for Winning at Work, Rania Anderson lends her guidance on this exact topic. Social mores have changed, and yet, well-intentioned managers simply don't always know what to do and what's appropriate and useful to actively recruit, retain, and advance more women into leadership. They want to be told how this can make a difference to them and how they can make a difference— this book shows you how to improve your own results and win in business: A new playbook to recruit and retain high-caliber women Take actions to work effectively, elevate and lead with women in the workplace Discover how traditional social roles exert a powerful pull on people of both genders and what to do about it. End confusion of male leaders In the #MeToo era when everyone else is focused on what’s wrong and what not to do, WE: Men, Women, and the Decisive Formula for Winning at Work, is about what’s going well and what you can do. Men who are front-line managers, middle managers, and senior managers have been sidelined and left out of efforts to achieve gender parity for too long. Now, these guys can get back in the game!
