New Business Book CORNER OFFICE RULES Provides Perspective and Tools for C-Suite Executives Co-Authors Keith R. Wyche and Renee Bellamy Booth, PhD explore strategies for the top ten realities of executive life

NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- There are hundreds of books advising people how to write resumes, network for fun and profit, win friends and influence people, find their proverbial cheese, determine the color of their proverbial parachute, build highly effective habits and work a shorter week...and that is all very important to building one's career. But let's say you've read some or all of those great books, the advice worked and you've made it in the corporate world. What will you find at the top of the ladder? Now that you've landed the corner office, what do you do? Being good is not enough. "Managing" is not enough. Nor is executing. Or leading.


In CORNER OFFICE RULES: The 10 Realities of Executive Life, CEO and bestselling author Keith Wyche and his co-author, institutional organizational psychologist, Renee Bellamy Booth, provide a direct and extremely useful guide to executive life. For those at the top of the ladder, the realities include:

Reality 1:  What made you successful then, won't now.

Reality 2:  You don't know everything.

Reality 3:  Criticism will be more intense. 

Reality 4:  You're not alone, but sometimes you will feel like you are.

Reality 5:  The perception gap widens. You have to see yourself how others see you now.

Reality 6:  Your values will be put to the test.

Reality 7:  Embrace constructive conflict.

Reality 8:  In this role, reputation is everything. As leader, you are always on the clock, always on display and always being judged.

Reality 9: The company can't love you back. You need an authentic life.

Reality 10: Your time is limited, know when and how to leave the role.

Wyche, former president and CEO of ACME Markets, has over thirty years of experience working with some of corporate America's most distinguished companies such as AT&T, IBM, and Pitney Bowes.
