Marine Corps Way to Win on Wall Street : 11 Key Principles from Battlefield to Boardroom (Hardcover)
about this item
Many Americans view Wall Street as a bastion of greed and corrupt morals; a place that attracts people who don't deserve the money they earn but are willing to break the law to make more of it. But for all their mistrust, many of these same Americans believe that Wall Street is an essential institution; that our economy couldn't function without its banks and investment institutions. How do we take the evil out of this necessity?
Send in the Marines.
Ken Marlin is a veteran of both Wall Street and the Marine Corps. In Seize the High Ground, he teaches you how to leverage the key tenets of Marine life to win on Wall Street: how to devise a durable, long-term strategy; how to establish feasible, clear, tactical objectives; why it's imperative to leverage the varied expertise of your team; how to obtain and use sound intelligence on the opposition; know the terrain before you pick your battle; identify and capitalize on your combat advantage; control timing to work in your favor; negotiate from a defensible position; do your due diligence; how to harness discipline and leadership to craft a bulletproof plan.
In his decades of experience in the banking world, Marlin has deployed these tactics to engineer lasting success for himself and his clients: he's seen these principles work on the battlefield and in the boardroom. Marlin's methods lead to ethical victories and honorable business - that's the Marine Corps way.
