9780061340369: How to Relax Without Getting the Axe: A Survival Guide to the New Workplace

“Nobody pricks corporate balloons better than Stanley Bing.”
New York Post
 

The ultimate satirist of corporate America, bestselling author Stanley Bing (Sun Tzu Was a Sissy, Crazy Bosses) now offers an outrageous “Survival Guide to the New Workplace” with How to Relax Without Getting the Axe—an eminently useful handbook that shows you how to retire on the job while still taking up (window) office space and drawing a huge salary. Succeeding in business without really trying is easy the Bing way. How to Relax Without Getting the Axe shows you all the ins and outs, while proving correct the assessment of popular radio host Don Imus that, “Bing is hilarious!”

From the Back Cover:

If business is a hamster wheel, what kind of hamster do you want to be? The one who runs all day long, huffing and puffing to keep things turning? Or the sleek and happy rodent who works in the corner office down the hall? Stanley Bing has seen the way the big furballs operate in good times and bad.

Core skills taught in this book:

Delegation
Telling people what to do and having them do it.

Absence
Operating from the digital vacuum.

Abuse of status
It can be done.

Decisiveness
Even when confused.

Engagement
But only when necessary.

Step off the wheel.
Grab this book.
And relax.
