Overview

It's tough to be an employee in today's job market. You are expected to keep yourself organized and focused on your work while meeting deadlines, communicating effectively, dealing with difficult people, getting along with co-workers, making your boss happy, and also having enough time at the end of the day to focus on your personal life too. It is enough to drive anyone mad.

Employees want to feel useful, appreciated, challenged, and have opportunities for advancement. Companies want employees who are organized, efficient, reliable, effective, and team-oriented. They even pay large sums of money for various training programs in each of these topics. This book was created to bridge that gap and offer a comprehensive training tool for employees to learn all of the skills their employer wants them to know so that those employees can be happier, more fulfilled, and more successful in the process.

    Best employee self help book ever.

    I don't normally buy books but I really like the title of this one. Most companies are experiencing cutbacks and layoffs every month and employees need to do more with less. A lot of people are unhappy but they feel stuck because there are no other jobs available. This book is like a ray of sunshine because it can teach anyone how to make their job better. It shows people how to improve their attitude and outlook and also how to have more fun at work. It offers practical advice from an expert about addressing problems and not letting things fester. There are chapters on things like getting along with co-workers and making our boss successful which leads to making our own lives easier and potentially more successful. It also provides practical tips for reducing stress, getting organized, and building a career plan so that you can get a promotion. I recommend that companies buy this for their employees as an incentive and training tool.

    Great Book

    Anyone can read this book and pick up a few useful tips that they can apply to their job every day. There are exercises throughout the book for people to assess their particular work environment and personal habits. For me, the two most useful exercises were the "Time Wasters" and the "Time Log" because I was able to track exactly how I am spending my time both at work and at home and to see how useful it is. I found out that I spend a lot of time on things that are not a high priority and are not contributing to my future goals, so I am now working on changing my habits and showing both my boss and my family what really matters to me.

    Well written book, I highly recommend it!

    This book is great because of its usefulness and relevance. I learned a lot about organization and developing thorough communication between my subordinates, my peers and my superiors. I recommend this book for any employee who wants to make their work environment a better place.
