I found a book that you should check-out. Acting Up Brings Everyone Down is a book by Nick McCormick of Be Good Ventures. The book is a short read, but is packed with wit, irony and useful workplace tips.
When I began reviewing the book, I couldn't help but think back to my days in the corporate world. The irony was inescapable. Nick does a good job at finding situations and anecdotes that breed a sense of relating. I especially like the 3rd chapter, Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire. Sincere lying is an art form in some corporate halls.
The tips are also not to be overlooked. Nick gives the reader no-nonsense help without resorting to worn out motivational techniques. It's the stuff we no we should do, and shouldn't do.
Maybe Acting Up Brings Everyone Down will help us get back to some basics.
