There's a lot happening every minute at work. Most peole do not see 10 percent of what is really going on. This book tells you how to stay out of trouble, impress almost everyone including your boss and encourage your employees to watch your back every mintute. With the knowledge you'll gain and the guidance of helpful exercises at the end of each chapter, you'll beat the run-of-the-mill amateur ass kissers and brown nosers at their own poorly prepared game every time. They'll be left delivering air kisses while you're staying out of trouble and getting ahead.
This book tells it like it really is in the bare knuckes battle to survive and prosper in today's heartless and ruthless business world. If you think hard work is all it takes, you're not going to last long - you need to know the real truth about how to handle bosses, executives and peers. And yes, kissing ass and brown nosing is part of the game; it's nothing to be ashamed of. But if you can't kiss ass and brown nose better than the competition, you should be ashamed.
All primates, humans inclued, want and need to have their asses kissed and brown nosed. It's woven into the fabric of our DNA. This book shows you how to do it the right way by distilling research from primatology, genetics, brain imaging and human decision making into 150 Laws of the Jungle that show you how to handle every potential opportunity and trouble spot in day-to-day business. You'll find out in Law of the Jungle 114, why you must never tell your boss the truth even if he/she is just asking the time, why executives are so dangersous they must be avoided as much as possible (Law of the Jungle 101) and the safest way to sell your ideas to the boss (Laws of the Jungle 117 and 121).
Just as important as handling bosses, peers and executives is being a good leader and supervisor. The best way to get the most out of your employees by creating a world class work group is presented in Laws of the Jungle 82 to 100. They cover every aspect of what a world-class leader must do to protect his people, get them to love their work (and do more of it) and show them how to protect the boss, each other and their area.
Additional chapters deal with the secrets of succes in meetings, presentaition, peer relations, getting work done and business travel. Told in jungle and dinosaur metaphor (to help challenge any delusions you might have about how "nice" people are), this book provides you with that extra edge that few others will have.
