About this title


Congratulations on entering the workforce! It is your first day at your new job. You are fresh out of school with no idea where the cafeteria is let alone how to survive, and thrive, in the workplace. You are not alone. Most of us have experienced your concerns at one time or another. Winning in the Workplace is a great read for recent graduates as well as anyone in any profession interested in learning the “office survival skills” not taught in school. Winning in the Workplace focuses on four areas of concern shared by all new hires. 1. Managing Office Politics. The book contains suggestions on getting along with your boss and what to listen for in meetings. It explains how organizations are structured, where the power lies and how to navigate through it. We will also go over all that stuff your mother tried to teach you about presenting yourself! 2. Managing Processes. Processes exist to deliver what it is the firm does. The book explains how to improve process throughput and how to manage the interface between processes. It offers suggestions on selling and negotiating your ideas and how to recognize paradigm shifts that may require a process change. 3. Managing Others. The book explains how to manage people by looking at what managers should do more of, and what they should do less of. It compares and contrasts managing and leading. Since every leader needs followers, we explore leadership from the follower’s perspective. 4. Managing Your Career. Each of us has a career path, either by design or default. The book suggests how to construct your career journey and where to find help achieving your goals. Winning in the Workplace describes the finer points of landing a new job: finding it; interviewing for it; and negotiating terms. Winning in the Workplace is a quick read filled with easy to understand tips that will help you succeed in the workplace. You will find it to be a valuable reference over the course of your career.

In this book, Winning In The Workplace, John focuses on the relationships and behaviors of people working within these processes. His advice on how to succeed in the workplace is of value to anyone wishing to start or rejuvenate a career. John’s managerial experience spans manufacturing, logistics and the IT function. During his tenure at Kraft Foods Inc., he led the team responsible for creating the manufacturing and distribution processes for Lunchables© and other innovative product lines.

John has traveled the globe working with partners in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Eastern Europe, Western Europe and India.
