NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The business world is full of unnecessary bullsh*t.
According to one study, three out of four workers are either miserable or bored. One out of five actively hates the boss.
According to another study, last year the average worker received more than 7,500 useless emails, experienced 14,000 interruptions, and wasted over 360 hours—that's 9 work weeks!—in futile meetings.
It doesn't have to be this way, according to award-winning Inc.com columnist Geoffrey James. "It's surprisingly easy to navigate the business world, and enjoy the process, when you know the secrets," he explains. For example:
- Your #1 job is always to make your boss more successful.
- You can and should ditch any meeting that lacks an agenda.
- Your resume won't get you a job; all it will do is take you out of the running.
- 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts.
- Consistently working long hours makes you LESS productive.
- There are exactly seven situations when it's OK to lie to your boss.
- Job security no longer exists, but career security is easier to achieve than you think.
James, whose daily columns on Inc.com and CBSi have been read by millions, reveals all of the above and more in his new book BUSINESS WITHOUT THE BULLSH*T: 49 SECRETS AND SHORTCUTS THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW (to be published by Business Plus on May 13).
