Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In today's fast-paced, unprecedented, and unpredictable economy, many executives simply don't know what to do. Conventional methods--which many never entirely be understood in the first place--often don't work during economic upheaval. Executives, especially CEOs, need something better. They need a guide that identifies the roadblocks and points out the landmines.

In her more than 30 years of working with hundreds of executives, Dr. Linda Henman has observed the critical elements of success, both for the new leader and the one who aspires to the next level of success.

In Landing in the Executive Chair, you'll learn how to:
  • Avoid the pitfalls and identify a clear plan for personal and organizational success.
  • Leverage the first months in a new executive position--that time of transition that promises opportunity and challenge, but also often brings a period of great vulnerability.
  • Create a competitive advantage, set the right tone, make effective decisions, keep talent inside your doors, and establish credibility--all while navigating unfamiliar and turbulent waters.
As organizations expand and grow, the skills that led to success often won't sustain further development in a more complex, high-stakes environment. Present and future executives need more. They need Landing in the Executive Chair.


"From the classroom to the boardroom, Landing in the Executive Chair is required reading for anyone looking to implement effective leadership strategies. Dr. Henman mines both tried and tested theories, as well as the styles and applications of successful leaders across the spectrum. A must-have to inspire and motivate any organization."
—General Richard B. Myers, Ret., 15th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

"I especially liked the segment on Abraham Lincoln. His leadership and commitment to a cause kept his Cabinet together. The mark of a good leader in the executive chair is the person who can so train his followers that they say to themselves, 'We don't need him--we can do it ourselves.'"
—Captain James Lovell, Commander, Apollo 13

"The book provides a comprehensive framework of 'must do's' for new CEOs and serves as an important reminder of key tasks for CEOs who have been on the job a while."
—Greg Kozicz, PhD, president & CEO, Alberici Constructors, Inc.

"As a new CEO, I found effective leadership of my board to be a difficult challenge. With the help of Linda's insight and leadership, I am now able to leverage their collective experience and wisdom to improve the quality of my decisions and execution."
—John Stroup, CEO, Belden
