About the Book

Today's growingly precarious workplace presents unprecedented challenges that perplex even veteran employees. With the workforce going global, the workplace virtual, the payrolls leaner, and the organizational hierarchies flatter, stressed-out and discomposed workers want to understand success mantras. With the inexorable workplace-demographic shift, age disparity is creating a difficult-to-comprehend employee dynamic. Yet, nothing has changed fundamentally that should discourage a savvy professional. Conquering provides that bedrock foundation, demystifying how today's organizations function and their workers behave, so that you can understand-even predict-what is happening. Learn why:

  • Managers make wrong assumptions about employees
  • It takes skill to manage your manager and to know their functions
  • When peers hijack your agenda, you must coolly unleash your wrath
  • Career management requires a road map and chutzpah
  • Apprenticing in the right job sets your career trajectory
  • Learning global cultures galvanizes your career
  • Everyone must know how to handle customers
  • Avoiding organizational sticky wickets can unblock success
  • Knowing when you're in trouble is key to what's next
  • Developing broader job perspectives can be liberating

Real-life insights and object lessons, handy tools, identifiable scenarios, and timeless treatment, make Conquering an indispensable playbook for today's global workforce.
