How many of us have found ourselves stuck in dysfunctional work environments, feeling undervalued by the company, disrespected by our boss and feeling like the only way out of the swamp is to quit and start over? Well, if you’re like me, you’ve been in this position on more than one occasion. And, like me, you’ve probably blamed the company/boss/HR for your predicament. This book will challenge that thinking.
For me, the key takeaway messages are those of awareness and empowerment - for looking at your situation with open eyes and for taking control of the things that you CAN control. If I had come across this book several years ago, I have no doubt it would have saved me from repeating the same mistakes as I moved from job to job hoping that things would get better simply by changing the address of my workplace.
There’s a malaise that has infected so much of ‘corporate land’ and the authors are to be commended for their forthright views and most importantly, their encouragement for all of us to take responsibility for our workplace satisfaction.
