Much as Good to Great described what separates top companies from the rest, The Next Level shows new, current, and future executives what differentiates success and failure at the executive level. Every day, high performers are tapped to be executives and then left alone to figure out how to function successfully in their new role. When this happens, most new executives rely on strengths that served them well earlier in their careers. As executive coach Scott Eblin explains, this is why 40 percent of them fail. Moving successfully to the executive level requires knowing which behaviors and beliefs to drop, as well as which new ones to pick up. Like having a personal executive coach, this confidence-building book outlines a program for success for new and future executives and offers frank advice from accomplished senior executives on what to do and to avoid.

After the thrill of promotion to an executive position comes the sobering reality of just how difficult it is to succeed at this level--and how hard it can be to find help. Some 40 percent of new executives don't last 18 months. A failed senior-level hire can cost a company up to $2.7 million. Why do so many employees with strong track records derail when promoted to the executive suite? In THE NEXT LEVEL, Scott Eblin draws on 20 years of experience as a leader and executive coach to identify why new executives fail and offers a practical program for achieving success.
Eblin sat down for one-on-one interviews with some thirty executives from many of America's leading organizations, including Avon, Capital One, Clear Channel, Northrop Grumman, and Sprint. In his book, he shares these insiders' personal stories, including how they stumbled--then succeeded--in their transition to the next level of leadership.
Rising executives must understand that the strengths and actions that drove their career progress at lower levels, such as technical prowess, will not necessarily sustain their success as executives. Eblin's bottom-line message to new leaders: What got you there won't keep you there. You must learn new beliefs and behaviors and, more importantly, let go of old ones--even though they've driven your success up until now.
Beyond Eblin's tactical advice, he provides a framework for transformational behavior and thinking--for creating executive presence, the confidence that is critical for success. THE NEXT LEVEL is essential for corporate leaders who have just been promoted to or are on track for the executive level, as well as any executive who needs a refresher.From the Inside Flap:
Some 40 percent of new executives fail within eighteen months of their promotion. What goes wrong, and how can you ensure that you succeed in the executive ranks?
To be an effective executive, you need to know that what drove your progress at lower levels will not necessarily sustain your future success. You must adopt new ways of thinking and acting, and, more important, let go of old ways. Succeeding as an executive requires undergoing a transformational experience unlike any other in one's career. THE NEXT LEVEL provides the framework for achieving this transformation.
Author Scott Eblin, a former Fortune 500 HR executive turned executive coach, identifies what separates success from failure for new executives as well as for more experienced professionals who could be even better. Drawing on more than twenty years of experience working with new and seasoned executives, he identifies nine key sets of behaviors and beliefs that rising executives must pick up and let go of to succeed at the next level. To illustrate these, he provides eye-opening interviews with thirty accomplished senior executives, who candidly discuss expectations at the executive level and how they handled their transition. Eblin also provides an effective tool called the Executive Success Plan to get you started and keep you on the right track.
Like having your own personal coach, THE NEXT LEVEL helps you gain the courage and confidence to let go of behaviors that no longer serve you while picking up new ones that will. Eblin's clear, practical advice--reinforced by counsel from executives who have made it--will help you achieve a successful transition to the executive level.
