Claiming the Corner Office: Executive Leadership Lessons for Nurses: Connie Curran/ Therese Fitzpatrick
Dozens of top CEOs reveal their candid insights on the keys to effective leadership and the qualities that set high performers apart. What does it take to reach the top in business and to inspire others? Adam Bryant of The New York Times decided to answer this and other questions by sitting down with more than seventy CEOs and asking them how they do their jobs and the most important lessons they learned as they rose through the ranks. Over the course of extraordinary interviews, they shared memorable stories and eye-opening insights. The Corner Office draws together lessons from chief executives such as Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), Carol Bartz (Yahoo), Jeffrey Katzenberg (DreamWorks), and Alan Mulally (Ford), from which Bryant has crafted an original work that reveals the keys to success in the business world, including the five essential personality traits that all high performers exhibit—qualities that the CEOs themselves value most and that separate the rising stars from their colleagues. Bryant also demystifies the art of leadership and shows how executives at the top of their game get the most out of others. Leadership is not a one-size-fits-all skill, and these CEOs offer different perspectives that will help anyone who seeks to be a more effective leader and employee. For aspiring executives—of all ages—The Corner Office offers a path to future success. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Oliver Wyman.

David Novak, one of today´s most engaging, unconventional, and successful business leaders, lived in 32 trailer parks in 23 states by the time he reached the seventh grade. He sold encyclopedias door to door, worked as a hotel night clerk, and took a job as a $7,200-a-year advertising copywriter with the hope of maybe one day becoming a creative director. Instead, he became head of the world´s largest restaurant company at the ripe old age of 47. While David never went to business school, he did learn from the greatest of teachers: experience. His ideas built an entire culture around reward and recognition, getting everyone from division presidents to dishwashers to buy into recognizing the achievements of others, and are studied in great detail by other companies. Now he wants to share with you what he discovered about getting ahead and getting noticed; motivating people and turning businesses around; building winning teams and running a global company of nearly one million people; and always staying true to yourself. Whether you are the CEO of a global conglomerate or a budding entrepreneur, David Novak´s street-smart wisdom will help you get where you want to go. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Howard Ross.

GAYDEN - bass, TIM AUSTIN - drums. Learned My Lesson is the celebration of Zora Young´s lifelong love affair with the blues.This is Zora´s first album on an established American label which is surprising since she is one of the most creative blues singers in Chicago. Zora was born in West Point, Mississippi and raised in Chicago where she grew up singing gospel music in a south side church. After years in the R&B ´´chittlin circuit´´, she switched to blues and since then has shared the stage with B.B. and Albert King, played the Chicago Blues Festival many times and tours Europe regularly. Zora´s voice ranges from a melancholy whisper to a rock ´n´ roll scream, and she will have you in her corner with one listen. With this album Zora Young has finally arrived to claim her rightful place as a contemporary blues powerhouse.
