Main description

No longer just for athletes, coaching is the new success secret of every savvy businessperson hungry for better performance and faster promotion. But what about those who can't afford big bucks to hire a coach? Now they can learn to coach themselves using the method perfected by D.A. Benton, famed "Coach to the corporate stars" and author of How to Think Like a CEO, a New York Times and BusinessWeek bestseller.

Like a one-on-one coaching session, this dynamic guide duplicates the process that has unleased career growth for hundreds of Benton's personal clients at companies such as AT&T, Citibank, and McKinsey. Readers will learn to diagnose their needs, project their goals, identify useful and destructive behaviors, and develop an Action Plan that unlocks their unlimited potential to succeed.
