Description:

Audio CD. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 7.8in. x 1.3in.The bestselling business classic published 62 years ago that Raytheon CEO William Swanson made famous in his Unwritten Rules of Mangement. In the summer of 2005, Business 2. 0 published a cover story on Raytheon CEO William Swansons self-published pamphlet, Swansons Unwritten Rules of Management. Lauded by such chief executives as Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett, the booklet became a quiet phenomenon; over 300, 000 people over the next year wrote in requesting copies. This spring, the real secret behind Swansons Unwritten Rules of Management was discovered-the better part of the 33 rules in Swansons book came from a business classic called The Unwritten Laws of Engineering, published in 1944 by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Although over 150, 000 copies have been sold over the years, by and large it has never been available through retail stores. Now, updated and revised in 2001 by James G. Skakoon and re-titled The Unwritten Rules of Business, these universal and enduring rules are available to business readers everywhere. Filled with sage advice and written in a spare, engaging style, these rules offer gems of knowledge and insight on working with others, reporting to a boss, organizing a project, running a meeting, advancing your career, and more. Success in ones career, and in ones life, depends fundamentally on communication, interpersonal skills, integrity, leadership, decorum, and personal and professional responsibility. By following the guidelines outlined in the book, new graduates and seasoned managers alike will learn how to master and apply these skills. Every once in awhile, one comes across a book with a message so timeless, so universal, that it transcends generations. We are delighted to make The Unwritten Laws of Business available to a new generation. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Book Description Profile Books Ltd. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Unwritten Laws of Business, James G. Skakoon, W.J. King, This hidden gem was first published 60 years ago but was known only to a lucky few until it resurfaced in 2005 - when 300,000 requests were made for a CEO's personalised version. In the summer of 2005, Business 2.0 published a cover story on a self-published management pamphlet by the CEO of American aerospace contractor Raytheon. Lauded by chief executives including Jack Welch and Warren Buffett ('one of the best books I've seen') it became a phenomenon, and more than 300,000 people wrote in to ask for a copy. But much of the pamphlet drew on a book from 1944 - which Profile reissued, updated as The Unwritten Laws of Business in 2007. Filled with sage advice and written in a clear, engaging style, it offers insights on relating to colleagues and outsiders, the laws of character and personality, personal development, and much, much more - all of which has stood the test of time. Refreshingly free of the latest business jargon, The Unwritten Laws of Business is wise, ethical and insightful, capturing and distilling the timeless truths and principles that underlie management and business the world over.
