Work brings its fair share of agony. If it isn't a difficult colleague, it's an unscrupulous competitor, or long hours and stressful deadlines. This work talks about office-related anxieties, showing how willingness to consider the other person's perspective and honesty about ourselves can show the way forward in apparently intractable situations.
Work brings its fair share of agony. If it isn't a difficult colleague, it's an unscrupulous competitor, or long hours and stressful deadlines. And as Jeremy Bullmore reminds us in this witty, trenchant and worldly wise book, our worst enemy is always waiting for an opportunity to do us down, show us up or knock us back: ourselves. Drawing on his long-running column for "Management Today", Bullmore gives us a tour around the whole range of office-related anxieties, from over-friendly bosses to what to do about hot desking; from anxiety over pay negotiations to coping with redundancy. He shows how willingness to consider the other person's perspective and ruthless honesty about ourselves can show the way forward in apparently intractable situations.
Jeremy Bullmore has had a distinguished career in advertising, rising to become chairman of J. Walter Thompson Co. and subsequently of WPP Group.
