Read what some readers had to say about Corporate Rise:
"After reading "The X Principles of Extreme Personal
Leadership", I was not only inspired to become a corporate leader but
also driven to push myself beyond my own expectations. The X Principles is
definitely a page turner of unfolding corporate truths offering invaluable
insight into corporate America. I highly recommend reading this
- Crystal J. Parker
"A few months ago, I was lucky enough to sit next to Dr. Crawford on a
flight to SFO. He had just confirmed the date that this book was to be
published. I asked him about the book and received the greatest one on one
leadership training you could possibly imagine. Dr. Crawford is brilliantly
insightful, very funny and his book is definitely worth your time.
The book is built on both his amazing experience and a tremendous amount of
research. It's well organized; fast paced, and will provide you with the tools
to be a better leader. I recommend it highly."
- R. Boothby (San Francisco)
"Compliance & Conviction: The Evolution of Enlightened Corporate
Governance" by Curtis J. Crawford, Ph.D., is the kind of advice only a
former CEO, senior executive, chairman and director can dispense. It is a
comprehensive guide for the highest echelons of corporate America. It says
that good corporate governance should not be left to chance. Too many
companies learn that lesson too late. Filled with historical perspectives,
studies, hands-on assessment tolls, and much more, this book could be a
lifesaver for many corporations.
X-Leaders have high aspirations and very positive attitudes about their futures. They are highly motivated and academically well prepared. They believe in creating their own opportunities rather than waiting in line for the next big break. They strive to do exceptional things that inspire creativity and ever-higher levels of performance. These people feel inspired to reach for the stars!
Remember that you don't need to ask yourself whether or not you are a person who has potential; everyone has potential. Instead, ask yourself how to turn your talents into abilities that others see as powerful and influential. Many people know quite well that they have underdeveloped talents, but even those with enormous intellectual capacity often don't know how to leverage their talents into power and influence.
If you practice the X Principles for Extreme Success with an honest spirit and heartfelt passion, they will prove incredibly valuable to you throughout your career!
