Fast Track to the Top aims to bridge that gap by guiding you through the necessary characteristics for reaching the top of a given profession and achieving long-term success through looking at the skills, attitudes, backgrounds and working habits of high achievers. Fast Track to the Top is based on rigorous analysis of the skills and attitudes of 80 dynamic business leaders, including Bob Reid, Rocco Forte, Sir Richard Greenbury, and Stella Rimmington. It identifies similar traits that they share - "The Ten commandments for Success". Ros Taylor and John Humphrey guide you through the practical programmes and exercises in each of these key areas: problem-solving; achieving results; the winner mind-set; emotional intelligence; team building; stress management; a love of change; self-awareness; negotiation skills; confidence.
