How Would Confucius Ask For A Raise?
100 Enlightened Solutions For Tough Business ProblemsBook - 1994
Taking the 100 most frequently asked questions from audience members at her corporate lectures, business executive Carol Orsborn offers solutions that are refreshingly original yet are based on the I Ching, the three-thousand-year-old work of wisdom that inspired Confucius. In her book, Carol Orsborn reveals how these ancient principles can be remarkably relevant for handling the situations we all face in today's challenging workplace. Covering the corporate ladder from bottom to top, Orsborn's advice will take readers from the day they land that first job through decisions related to when and how to retire. Tough Business Problems include #5 "I was the best qualified for the promotion - but the offer went to someone else. Should I fight it?"; #10 "I love my job but I hate my boss. What can I do?"; #30 "My secretary is hopeless - and he's the boss's nephew. I can't trust myself to hold my tongue any longer; what should I do?"; #87 "I've got a report due tomorrow. To finish it on time, I'll have to miss my child's third-grade play. What should I do?" and, of course #1 "How would Confucius ask for a raise?" Orsborn's easy-to-read, humorous, and uplifting style touches every reader personally, whether you're an overworked executive who can't slow down or a frustrated entry-level worker who can't seem to jump-start your career. Tackling the range of problems from the mundane to the morally trying, How Would Confucius Ask for a Raise? will transform your approach to your career - and your life - with its honesty, its freshness, and its hope.
