About this title


As Kurt Vonnegut once said, “True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.”

When it comes down to it, workæwith its know-it-alls, gossips, and brown-nosersæis a lot like high school. This clever and useful book helps readers identify and better communicate with these and other common types we all remember from the days when report cards, not business reports, were our concern, and when the big social event was the prom, not the company picnic.

You don’t need to dig out your yearbook to get a glimpse of these typesæjust take a look around your office: the Teacher’s Pet, the Player, the Cheerleader, the Go-Getter, the Underachiever, the Class Clown, and many more.

With wit and uncanny accuracy, corporate coaches Wilma Davidson and Jack Dougherty outline all the members of the “class,” offering tips on working efficiently with each type, whether they’re your boss, your client, or a colleague. The book also delivers advice on handling authority, conformity, looks, popularity, “sex education,” and other indignities from high school that live on in the workplace.

Whether you’re still the same as you were in high school, a combination of types, or a reformed Rebel turned Class President, you will delight in and learn from this unique guide.

From the Back Cover:

Meet a Few Members of the “Class”

The “A” Student: They’re the ones at the meeting who prepared their key points in advance, wrote a summary for the boss, and brought stacks of backup data.

The Jock: Literally muscling their way into conversations and situations, they have a relaxed speech pattern and favor sports analogies.

The Cheater: Charming and sly with language, they’re always selling the big idea—yours!

The Geek: With enviable IQs and an amazing capacity to understand highly technical, complicated material, they rely on the facts to communicate their message.

The Snob: They’re elegant speakers and writers who try to project cultivated taste, exclusivity, and status.

The Party Animal: With an affable nature and innate verbal skills, they’re the ones who plan after-work get-togethers, birthday parties, summer outings, and any other excuse to party.
