With Guest Author, Thought Leader, Career Coach, and Corporate Executive, Keith R. Wyche.

Good Is Not Enough" is a practical, no-nonsenseguide to help minorities of all backgrounds better understand what is required to move beyond the level of middle management to senior level positions within corporate America. Wyche, a 2009 NAACP Image Award Nominee, states "Today, like never before, it is essential for minorities in business to understand the rules of engagement if they expect to survive in the race called Corporate America. All too often, careers of young, minority executives are left wrecked at the middle management level, as they fail to properly navigate the roads of right-sizing, mergers, acquisitions and other potholes of corporate life."
