Mostly a Direct Excerpt from the Book:

Many people might think that arrogance and self confidence are quite similar items, but those two terms could not be more different. Arrogance is basically a lie and a delusion and will almost always hurt you. Self confidence can be a great help. Self confidence deals in truth and whom you are and whom you are not, and then adds the willingness to accept yourself. And using that information of whom you are then becomes the basic foundation of how to form an organization that can be a killer team that can accomplish your dreams.

But, a person whom is arrogant and then whom also believes that they know everything is incapable of learning. If you are arrogant, I cannot help you and perhaps no one can since you are unlikely to listen to anything that I or anyone else will say. If arrogant, you would believe that you have “already arrived." But since arrogant people close off their minds and their senses and learn little, they are easy to beat. Even if you as a different person, have an open mind, and can learn just a little each day, you will pass up those who are arrogant and who refuse to move forward and progress.

Book: Strategies I Learned Becoming A VP   Book: Strategies I Learned Becoming A VP

During my career, back when Motorola was a huge thriving company with I heard some 150,000 world wide employees, I went there from perhaps being the lowest paid engineer on staff to becoming a Vice President. And that was not an honorary title only, but a Vice President in charge of Manufacturing or Engineering of both for a large division with perhaps yearly a billion US dollars in sales. How did I do that? Well, I realized I was not born with this knowledge. I learned it from many people along the way, and tried to decide what information I was being told made sense and what information did not make sense. And I learned from some people.. who I thought were great in business. And so what is the point of this book? My goal is simply to pass on business information to others as best as I could, in order to help others who may come after me. Yes, times change, and some may have to modify the strategies here as the world continues to change. But logic does not change. And you might just find this book a good help at a reasonable price.
