Information-dense guide to reputation management

Why is the lion king of the jungle? The reasons, says business consultant and executive coach Harrison Monarth, are his “impressive mane” and “even more impressive roar.” Though other creatures may be smarter or even bigger, the lion has a special blend of true power and “an image and related behavior” that convey that power. In today’s business jungle, image matters, too. If you want to rise to the top of your firm, whether you are a lion or a lio

Nanowrimo stands for National November Writing Month. The aim is to start and complete a full novel of 50,000 words within the 30 days of November. It’s a yearly event and this year I am going to try and use it to complete the first draft of the novel I have been trying to write forever.

I am not expecting it to be easy, but look out for updates during next month. In preparation I will be confirming the outline of the novel. This has proven

There is something immediately suspect when the author of the book is the founder and president of a company called GuruMaker. Nonetheless the author does have experience in such a thing and he’s written a book to ensure others have an opportunity to market themselves and manage peoples’ perception of them. In The Executive Presence: The Art of Commanding Respected Like a CEO, the author guides the reader through several things:
- Accurately “read” people and predict their behavior Influence the

After hearing rave reviews about this, I have to say it was a bit disappointing. For someone new to the workplace, it would be a great to-read before seeking a professional position. Also - topics discussed should be part of graduate school courses. If schools mandate taking a management class, which is always good, some of these chapters would be great as supplementary reading.

Great advice. I read this a couple of years ago and reread it just as I took on a major leadership position. The strategies on managing perceptions ETHICALLY have helped me hit the ground running with peers and direct reports. Great material and perspective on personal branding and influencing with dignity intact. Great storytelling style too. Highly recommended.

A refreshing and to the point resource for ambitious professionals. I found a number of great ideas, particularly on personal branding and executive storytelling. I found the book very valuable. I am in the process of getting my MBA and this is information not taught at any business school. It's also a fun read. Recommended!

Read the Soundview Summary of this book and found little that was new or challenging. Most of it common sensical. The author spends, I feel, too much space on presentation skills, less on cultivating healthy one on one habits.

Solid foundational piece for any leader seeking to understand the importance communication (verbal and non-verbal) has on executive presence. Nice bonus material toward the end on how to manage organizational crises.
