In Crack the C-Suite Code, Frangos reveals the hidden dynamics for reaching C-suite. She offers expert guidance based on her experience as a consultant at Spencer Stuart and former head of global executive talent at Cisco, a company with 70,000 employees. Her deep research on the topic includes candid interviews with CEOs, hundreds of aspiring C-suite candidates, and the leading experts in the field.  

Frangos identifies four core paths you can follow to reach the C-suite: the tenured executive, the free agent, the leapfrog leader, and the founder. To actively improve your chances for success, she presents:  

  • Insider knowledge from current CEOs and well-known executives  
  • Guiding questions that clarify the risks and rewards associated with each path  
  • Accelerators and derailers that either enhance or detract from your chances to succeed  
  • Advice on how to leverage your experience, leadership brand, and mind-set to help you land on the C-suite short list  
  • Insight on how the evolving role of the CEO affects your strategy to reach the top  

A career playbook for anyone who aspires to the top spot, Crack the C-Suite Code features advice from successful C-level leaders, including Accompany's Amy Chang, Goldman Sachs' Edith Cooper, Nest's Yoki Matsuoka, Cisco's Chuck Robbins, and Corning's Wendell Weeks. These and other top leaders from a broad range of companies, including Microsoft, Google, and General Electric, tell the stories of their success and help aspiring executives crack the C-suite code.
