Empowering Yourself: The Organizational Game Revealed
"Work hard and you'll get ahead " We've heard that all our lives, but has it worked? Has your hard work often gone unnoticed or have others who have not worked as hard as you moved on, leaving you behind? If so, this book is a must read. "Empowering Yourself...The Organizational Game Revealed" tells why your career might be slowing or has hit the "glass ceiling." For the first time, the unwritten rules that define our system have been defined and written. Whether your definition of success is increased credibility in your current assignment or moving up the organizational ladder, this book will give you the knowledge to make the proper decisions to accomplish your goals. This book will, as never before, take you into the critical area of the "unwritten rules" that are so important in a successful career or life. You will, after reading this book, truly know how "the system" works and how "the game" should be played. If gaining empowerment or owning/controlling your career is an objective in your life, you must learn how the system works. This will allow your choices to be meaningful and productive. Without the information contained in this course, personal decisions will be hollow and careers will be left to the dictates of the system. After reading this book, events in your organizations will make sense; the advice from your mentor will be better understood; and even the evaluation of the evening news will take on new excitement simply because you understand the game. It is impossible to win any game if you do not know the rules. Mr. Coleman, in a simple and straight forward manner, gives us the rules we need to be successful. This book can level the playing field for any individual.
