    ‘The Unwritten Rules’ Excerpt

    Promotions are often on intuition about a candidate’s potential for high-level success. This book chapter explores the leadership criteria involved in these decisions by revealing the ‘unwritten rules’ and examining the crucial factors for success in C-level roles.

    In “The
    Unwritten Rules: The Six Skills You Need to Get Promoted to the Executive
    Level
    ,” executive coach John Beeson argues that managers seeking C-level
    positions are often left to their own devices when it comes to career advancement.

    Although the near extinction of predictable career paths in most organizations is
    partly to blame, Beeson states that promotions are often made using the decision
    makers’ intuition about a candidate’s potential for high-level success, making it
    difficult for aspirants to figure out exactly what they need to do to move up. Beeson
    explores the leadership criteria involved in these decisions by revealing the
    “unwritten rules” and examining the core selection factors that are crucial for success
    in C-level roles.
