A MUST FOR EVERY SINGLE EMPLOYEE AND MANAGER!
I always thought something was wrong with ME. I worked hard, achieved well beyond the company's expectations and was extremely kind and considerate to everyone, no matter what they did in the company. Yet, I would still get 'into trouble.' After reading this book, I recommend it to every single person who works for someone other than him/herself. I now understand that I don't always fit into the 'corporate' structure. Many corporate people just want their lives to go smoothly. Don't go to them with anything other than the technical part of the job. If someone is rude, sabatoging or not carrying their weight, don't go to anyone. They don't want to hear it. It only makes them have to 'manage' their staff and make decisions - a job for which they were put into that position. I have learned how to play the coporate game and it is document everything, try to resolve it and if it becomes a 'no win' situation, GET OUT! I left on company when the manager wanted to move me from outside sales to inside desk with the office girls who fought all the time. I quit. It will be a dead-end street and no matter how well you do your job, you don't fit in. I am slowly becoming a motivational speaker and I shall recommend this book to everyone. It made me see that it isn't about me. I am not into the office gossip and go to work to work. Therefore, if only ONE person and he/she is the 'leader' of the pack, doesn't like me, LOOK OUT! I don't stand a chance if the management doesn't see it or WANT to see it. And worse yet if this indivual is above you the chain. You can love your job and everything about it, it is a 'family' of sorts. One reason family's are dysfunctional is the same thing, the decision makers don't see or don't want to see where the problems lie and how to fix them. Your company is your family and if you don't fit in to their culture, either shut up and take it or leave...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
