High school is never truly over. Dig deep into your teenage years and you'll discover that work is simply high school for grownups, complete with the Class President in the corner office, the Party Animal entertaining clients, and the Gossip telling everyone about so-and-so's divorce. After all, isn't everyone still flattering, backstabbing, envying, charming, and passing notes around during meetings? And aren't you typecast now, as you were then?
Don't let that discourage you. Whether you're the Know-It-All, the Underachiever, the Geek, the Activist, or the Loner, it's never too late to reinvent yourself or to find new ways to deal with your officemates.
With this book, you'll learn how to use your experience in the classroom and the cafeteria to reinvigorate your image, downplay traits that hurt you, and pump up the skills that will help you get ahead. Identify your core communication strengths and weaknesses. Find out whether you-and your boss-rank at the top or the bottom of the class.
Discover how to adopt and blend the traits you most admire from all the personality types in your class-that is, in your workplace. The Party Animal looking to strengthen his credentials might take a page from the A Student's book, while the Rebel who needs to solidify her new promotion with better team play should study the Cheerleader or the Jock for ideas. Because, unlike high school, your career can offer you a second chance to improve your image and reputation, and to make the most of your natural style.
