Some people seem to be just great at their job. They glide effortlessly onwards
and upwards through all the politics, the back stabbing, the system, and the
nonsense that goes on. They always seem to say and do the right thing. Everybody
likes them. They get pay rises and promotion. They get on with the boss. And
somehow, they do all these without breaking much of a sweat or seeming to put
in excess effort.
Is there something they do that we don't? Is it a natural ability or something
we could all learn? The answer is a most definite and resounding yes. They know
the 'Rules of Work'. These rules are about how you are seen to be doing your
job - brilliantly and efficiently. They are about how you appear to others -
successful and confident.
The Rules of Work takes simple information about how people relate to each other
in a completely artificial environment - the workplace - and uses it to promote
your rise up the ladder of success. This is the book for you if you want to
get on and up without becoming ruthless or unpleasant. This is the book for
you if you want to be successful and still be able to live with yourself, and
be regarded as a thoroughly decent person by your colleagues and bosses.
