Did you know that of every 100 employees hired, only 6 or 7 will ever be promoted to their first management position. If you're a manager now, and you probably are if you're reading this, "Congratulations!" You're one of the 7% who made it! That's the good news. Now, here's the bad news. Statistically speaking you won't be promoted again. The vast majority of these first time managers will eventually fail, and only 1 in 7 will stay in management with their present company for 5 years. Built to Lead is a "get-in-the-trenches with you, no-holds-barred" discussion about maximizing your ability to have an amazing management career. It tackles, head-on, the lies you've been told about how to reach the top in your company, and shows you what REALLY WORKS! David has reached the Top 10% in three separate industries, and the principles he teaches are universal, regardless of your industry. You'll read the stories of ordinary people (just like you), from managers, employees, and friends, who are very successful today as a result of listening to the advice contained in this book. Motivational CEO David Long shares with you his powerful "7 Management R.E.W.A.R.D.S Principles" for career success.
