Work Zone Madness! Surviving and Rising Above Workplace Dysfunction
I wrote Work Zone Madness! in response to an urgent need to help people deal with the dysfunction that runs rampant in today's organizations: incompetence, turf wars, toxic personalities, mergers and buyouts, and economic uncertainties.
This is not a business how to book. There is no magic pill to swallow or a ten step program to follow. Workplace dysfunction is universal and transcends job functions and industries. How do I know this? I've been working in and observing this dysfunction first-hand from the back offices of corporate America for the past 30 years - and I have seen it all.
This book is a collection of stories about typical office situations and how I not only survived, but rose above the dysfunction to improve my career. In the same way, you can control your own destiny and be empowered to effect change in your own work environment.
Work Zone Madness! is a quick read, but you'll find yourself using it as a frequent reference. Reading this book won't change your organization, but it will give you a fresh viewpoint. You'll approach the same situations with a different and more positive attitude.
Whether you are an employee, a business owner, or a manager, you have the power to effectively change your situation from a daily soap opera to a place of success.
