Why Achievers Suffer and What to do about it
By Tom E Jones
Publisher: Worx Publishing
Doer’s Dilemma is a surprisingly useful book for looking at people, particularly those in the workplace and reviews of different people and how to deal with their particular idiocies.
It focuses on relationships, and they interactions with people affect your work and career.
This book will explain why things occur and how to deal with them, such as people that are incompetent, and how to work with them to achieve goals.
Jones does not wander with personal success stories, and is not big noting himself, rather providing a practical guide to organisational relationship success.
Other topics include communication issues , dealing with negative information, lack of direction from managers, collaboration and team work, taking responsibility and having accountability, dealing with motivation in the workplace, taking initiative, performance coaching, workplace dysfunction, and the change process.
There is a toolbox at the end, that relate to each chapter, with checklists of strategies.
This book is one that I plan to keep with me as I work with the issues that occur in different organisations I work with.
