Description

Working in corporate America is like surviving in the world of sports: there are things to win, theres competition, there are teams and teammates, people play certain positions, managers are coaches, employees have game plans, and the business year is often divided into quarters.At work, the corporate professional is also a business athlete. At work, the corporate professional is actually in a game. At work, the corporate professional is personally responsible to play his position. At work, there is a specific set of rules for the corporate professional to follow. And though the rules may seem unfair, at work, the corporate professional will need to follow the rules to win.The reader is treated as if hes a professional basketball player going into his rookie season. Chapters mirror the players life as an athlete. Before the real work-season starts, the business athlete spends time in pre-season. First and second quarter, halftime, third and fourth quarter reflect the actual activity at work. The off-season represents a time at work when the corporate professional begins to leave his new-hire or rookie status to become a seasoned player. A final chapter offers business advice to keep the corporate professional motivated.The chapter format is simple: business rules followed by explanations, and random mixtures of anecdotes and sports analogies called, Sports Talk. Sports Talk helps to draw comparisons to similar rules or principles in the game of basketball. For concepts that require more details and examples, Appendices are used for reference. The Appendix also includes a recommended book list and a listing of helpful Internet sites.The Game assists the corporate professional in turning unconscious mistakes and blunders into purposeful and directed strategies for success, saving both time and money.
