Summary

Stop! Don't Go There! Mistakes Made by Top Leaders, provides a framework that should permeate strategies to balance the imperatives of the present with the high pressure demands of the future. The case in point is to focus on the organisation's core competencies rather than merely toeing the line of competitors. It, thus, offers a rich collection of hindsight vision from an elite and diverse group of leaders, juxtaposed with how that translates into actions in the current scenario. 
Based on in-depth interviews with more than 30 high profile leaders, the book provides valuable insights generated through the mistakes made by these luminaries. Be it related to balancing today's exigencies with tomorrow's challenges, articulating a road map, identifying values, behaviours and metrics for sustenance or aligning with culture...leaders have candidly admitted to their shortcomings and failings. What's intriguing is that some of them, overwhelmed with the quality of interaction, confessed to outlining their mistakes, on deep reflection, right during their interview. 
The valuable lessons learnt from these cross section of leaders spanning manufacturing, IT, services, education, politics, law, the fine arts, hospitality, and SMEs, represents a unique and important perspective to guide organisations towards a long-term winning position. 
 Letting go is what enables you to move forward. Many leaders have learnt to unlearn values and traditional mindsets in order to scale heights. This book, a one-of-its-kind compendium of corporate mistakes, structured around values, mistakes and learning through first person interviews, is a must-read for leaders and managers in today's fast changing, hypercompetitive world, where unquestioned answers are being probed. 
In demonstrating a high degree of learnability, the book is a true primer for a non-linear business world riddled with discontinuities and disruptions.

    How high will you climb? John Maxwell says it all depends on your attitude.  Nose up or nose down? Just as the angle of an airplane determines its altitude, so does the approach we take—to family, to work, to life in general—determine the attitude we present the world. The way we solve a problem is often secondary to the approach we take in facing the problem, our outward expression every bit as critical as the inward struggle. When the skies above appear stormy, how will you steer that internal plane we call attitude? With How High Will You Climb?, author John Maxwell presents detailed lessons on the single invaluable quality that has become a person’s primary force toward success. As the world around us delivers challenges—all the while marching on at its own inevitable pace—the attitude we choose affects each of us individually. And yes, an attitude can be chosen. Attitude is easy in times of joy and progress. But how do you handle the failures sure to interrupt the attainment of goals? What happens to us is often quite different from what happens in us. Calling the Bible a “handbook on attitude performance,” Maxwell emphasizes we are never actually flying solo. God supports our approach to problem solving and helps steer the attitude adjustments necessary to think correctly in a sometimes negative world. With a study guide to help evaluate and build upon your own flight angle, How High Will You Climb? establishes the fundamental elements for a steady, durable flight of life.

    According to the Department of Labor, the average woman in 1998 was bringing home less than $25,000 a year. For every dollar that a man makes, a woman makes between 50 and 75 cents, and that is hardly news.  
    But what you may not know is that, quietly and steadily, the number of women making six figures or more is rapidly increasing. Currently, over fifteen million women make $100,000 or more, and the number continues to rise at a rate faster then for men. And these women come from every industry - psychologists, dot com founders, consultants, freelance writers, and even part-timers.  
    What makes these particular women able to do so well in the workplace? Fueled by curiosity, Barbara Stanny, author of Price Charming Isn't Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money (Viking Penguin), set out to research this phenomenon. What she discovered was that, though the high-earning women she interviewed came from different backgrounds and had had greatly different work experiences, they all had certain characteristics in common.  
    Secrets of Six Figure Woman: Surprising Strategies of the Successful High Earners will be a ground breaking book for high earners who want to ensure their wealth, enhance their success, and learn from others who are in the same boat. It will also offer inspiration, guidance, and motivation to those who aspire to make more.
