Today on our review table got a new book by Robert Sutton. And what if they are around you. The book is quite specific. And like, probably not all (especially the proponents of positive thinking, etc.). But if you feel that you are surrounded by negative people, if you irritate the head, or you are not delighted with his business partner, Robert Sutton will definitely have you in mind.
What awaits you inside the book?
The first Chapter of a book entirely devoted to, in fact, the definition of “m. duck”. The author, using a huge number of stories and the results of scientific research, explains and shows how to identify the real “serial villains” and distinguish them from the so-called “temporary m. Dacian”. You will learn how to easily identify them and distinguish from each other. Why is it important? It’s simple. Almost everyone, sooner or later, finds himself in the place of those whom Robert Sutton calls. But one thing – a temporary state that can be easily corrected if the time to identify, and quite another matter – the so-called “certified m. ducky” who crank up their dirty tricks constantly. So, again, you have to fight all the forces.
You will also explore the “Dirty dozen” – twelve of the most common actions of the villains. This will help in time to identify malevolent object and its intentions, and find ways to counter them.
Another interesting idea from the first Chapter is as follows. Is not necessary always and everywhere to try to replace nice, calm, quiet, and spineless people. This applies to recruitment, partner search, etc. Much more useful to be in touch with people who have their own view of the world, know what they want and know how to argue. The only time they should not just argue, they should be able to prove his innocence with the help of facts, figures, examples, and other arguments. These are the people that are truly valuable, not spineless demure, carrying out the instructions of the authorities and afraid to Express their opinion.
The second Chapter of the book talks about the cause of the damage from the actions of m. Dacian. the Chapter is split into several parts, each covering a specific type of damage. After reading this Chapter, you will learn that the villains are detrimental not only to their immediate victims, but also to others to colleagues, friends, relatives, as well as the company as a whole and ourselves.
The third Chapter tells how to introduce a rule “do Not use” within your organization and stick to it constantly. Here you will find a great number of stories of well-known companies and their principles and practices that helped them in dealing with certified villains. The head is bulky, but read in one breath. Sure, you will find here a lot of cool techniques and tips that can immediately implement in their activities.
The fourth Chapter is devoted to the struggle with their own inner “goat”, which probably breaks out. At the end of this Chapter you will find a fascinating test that for a couple of minutes will determine how far you yourself are from the title “certified m. duck”. And knowing the truth about yourself, you can always fix it. Isn’t it?
In the fifth Chapter of the book “do Not work with” Robert Sutton talks about methods of survival in a hostile environment. In other words, on how to survive in a company where a lot of villains and they can be done. After all, sad as it may sound, but many of us have to endure unpleasant people around for a good place and a solid paycheck. Described in Chapter methods, will allow with minimal losses to survive in this “Kingdom, m. Dacian”.
And at the end of the book you will find fascinating material on the subject of advantages m. Dacian. It turns out that even the worst offenders are in their behavior, and some positive properties. What? Learn after reading the book. At this point our review has come to an end. Enjoy reading!
