From the creator of the popular website Ask a Manager and New York’s work-advice columnist comes a witty, practical guide to 200 difficult professional conversations—featuring all-new advice! There’s a reason Alison Green has been called “the Dear Abby of the work world.” Ten years as a workplace-advice columnist have taught her that people avoid awkward conversations in the office because they simply don’t know what to say. Thankfully, Green does—and in this incredibly helpful book, she tackles the tough discussions you may need to have during your career. You’ll learn what to say when • coworkers push their work on you—then take credit for it • you accidentally trash-talk someone in an email then hit “reply all” • you’re being micromanaged—or not being managed at all • you catch a colleague in a lie • your boss seems unhappy with your work • your cubemate’s loud speakerphone is making you homicidal • you got drunk at the holiday party Praise for Ask a Manager “A must-read for anyone who works . . . [Alison Green’s] advice boils down to the idea that you should be professional (even when others are not) and that communicating in a straightforward manner with candor and kindness will get you far, no matter where you work.”—Booklist (starred review) “The author’s friendly, warm, no-nonsense writing is a pleasure to read, and her advice can be widely applied to relationships in all areas of readers’ lives. Ideal for anyone new to the job market or new to management, or anyone hoping to improve their work experience.”—Library Journal (starred review) “I am a huge fan of Alison Green’s Ask a Manager column. This book is even better. It teaches us how to deal with many of the most vexing big and little problems in our workplaces—and to do so with grace, confidence, and a sense of humor.”—Robert Sutton, Stanford professor and author of The No Asshole Rule and The Asshole Survival Guide “Ask a Manager is the ultimate playbook for navigating the traditional workforce in a diplomatic but firm way.”—Erin Lowry, author of Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together

In the previous book in this series, Manfred Kets de Vries observed the experiences of leaders on a rollercoaster ride through their professional and personal lives. Now, he follows them down the rabbit hole into the unknown, where, like Lewis Carroll’s Alice, they find a dystopian Wonderland in which everyone seems to have gone mad and life functions according to its own crazy logic, throwing up all kinds of obstacles in the search for truth. Understanding what is happening around us has become more difficult than ever in the Age of Trump. Don’t imperatives like “build that wall” sound very much like “Off with his head”? Unfortunately, and unlike Alice, we are not going to wake up from a bad dream and discover that everything is “nothing but a pack of cards”. The first part of this book looks at the psychodynamics of leadership in both a business and a political context. The second focuses on the psychopathology of everyday life in organizations and the seemingly endless ways people can make a mess of things – including mega pay packages, acting out, digital addiction and other dysfunctional behaviour patterns. Each chapter ends with a brief anecdote to illustrate the dilemma it presents. In short, sharp nuggets, Kets de Vries helps make sense of how the madness of the present has affected leadership in organizations and the workplace.

The world of work has changed. People in previous generations tended to pick one professional path and stick to it. Switching companies every few years wasn’t the norm, and changing careers was even rarer. Today’s career trajectories aren’t so scripted and linear. Technology has given rise to new positions that never before existed, which means we are choosing from a much broader set of career options—and have even more opportunities to find work that lights us up. However, we don’t discover and apply for jobs the same way anymore, and employers don’t find applicants the way they used to. Isn’t it about time we had a playbook for navigating it all? Kathryn Minshew and Alexandra Cavoulacos, founders of the popular career website TheMuse, offer the definitive guide to the modern workplace. Through quick exercises and structured tips, you will learn: · The New Rules for finding the right path: Sift through, and narrow today’s ever-growing menu of job and career options, using the simple step-by-step Muse Method. · The New Rules for landing the perfect job: Build your personal brand, and communicate exactly how you can contribute and why your experience is valuable in a way that is sure to get the attention of your dream employer. Then ace every step of the interview process, from getting a foot in the door to negotiating your offer. · The New Rules for growing and advancing in your career: Mastering first impressions, the art of communication, networking, managing up and other “soft” skills – and make it obvious that whatever level you’re at, you’re ready to get ahead. Whether you are starting out in your career, looking to advance, navigating a mid-career shift, or anywhere in between, this is the book you need to thrive in the New World of Work.

Eve Shapiro has been writing about patient-centered care, physician–patient communication, and relationships between doctors and their patients since 2007. In Joy in Medicine? What 100 Healthcare Professionals Have to Say about Job Satisfaction, Dissatisfaction, Burnout, and Joy, Eve turns her attention to those on the healthcare delivery side of this "sacred interaction." These healthcare professionals share their enthusiasm, joys, frustrations, disappointments, insights, advice, stories, fears, and pain, explaining how it looks and feels to work in healthcare today no matter who you are, where you work, or what your position is in the organizational hierarchy. The healthcare professionals who provide patient care deserve our collective interest in their humanity. Without some insight into who they are and the forces with which they struggle every day, we cannot fully appreciate the obstacles to providing the care we all want for ourselves and our families during the best of times, let alone in the uncertain times that lie ahead.

If there’s one question that could very well start this book, it would be this: Do you love your work? Now, that question’s kind of heavy, isn’t it? It is perhaps too big for an opening statement, so you might think you didn’t get the question right. Let me repeat it then: “Do you love your work?” Why do I ask? It’s because everything that you are becoming every day, everything that you do every moment of your working hours, and probably everything that you think about most of the time, has everything to do with your life as a whole. Simply put, even if that question sounds seemingly easy, it’s a powerful key to finally putting to rest every agony, sorrow, and disappointment you have inside you that probably makes you hate either your job or your boss. When you get to answer that question with a “yes” or a “no,” let me ask you this follow-up question: “Why are you working?” Seemingly, that’s an easy question, too. When I ran a short survey on Facebook, in fact, there was no question at all about the answers. It was all about money, livelihood, satisfaction, the absence of choice, fate, and many more. The sentiments were all the same. In sum, we all work for either money or fulfillment or for a combination of both. But of course, one other fact has remained the same as it was thousands of years ago: We all need to work. Even company owners need to work. More often than not, they even work three or four times harder than their employees. Your bosses will need to work, too. Students will need to study. Parents will need to parent their children. Everybody will need to move and do something for as long as they live. Is it a punishment by God that when a certain Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, we all have ended up having to labor to live? Well, whether the story is true or not and whatever the answer to that question, the fact is we are all working and we will need to continue to do so to live. This is why I wrote this book. If we don’t have any option but to work for a living, how should we look at our work? If there’s nothing else we can do but to work for a living, how should we respond to this reality? If we could never ever escape a “working” life, then how should we position ourselves in the workplace? Our goal here is to understand the real meaning of what we do so we can liberate ourselves from anxiety, from pain, and from frustration due to our poor understanding of our job or of our work. Without expanding our thinking on this very important matter, our limited knowledge can do us more harm than good.

This book is about getting consistent results from the application of the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction works – but its intellectual understanding and practical application are two different things. For the most part people are unaware that wanting something and being positive about it are not the same. Three things set this book apart from all other books written on the subject. 1. The depiction of the Law of Attraction and the thinking process in the form of diagrams that make it easy to understand how our thoughts impact our results; 2. A method that helps us to identify beliefs that operate under the surface and control our lives without our knowing it; and 3. A four step process that helps to deactivate negative beliefs permanently so that we can thrive. The end result: A life that feels good. A life that is satisfying in all its aspects, whether it be health, relationships, money or self-esteem. You will learn how to control what happens to you and find ultimate freedom from worry, anxiety, and anger and a set of thinking exercises that can be used in every situation you would ever encounter in life.
