at Work is about lies. The type of underhand, pernicious and downright Machiavellian scheming that goes on in our businesses every day. An estimated £7.8bn is lost each year in the UK alone though unnecessary and counter–productive office politicking. But
21 Dirty Tricks at Work is also a book of hope. The mission statement of the authors is to expose these behaviours and provide practical, workable tools for the vast majority who want to do a good day’s work.
21 Dirty Tricks at Work provides you with all the information you need to spot negative tactics and self–interested strategies. It also shows you how to spot the games frequently being played and how to come out with your credibility intact and your sanity preserved.
So, if you are fed–up of constant back–biting, skulduggery and unscrupulous behaviour of your colleagues and workmates, join hands with the authors for the no–nonsense antidote for everyday politicking. It’s time to get Machiavelli on the run..!
