In a world where business ethics have taken a back seat to the pursuit of wealth and power and movements like political correctness have muzzled the fair exchange of ideas, is it any wonder that the average employee views the workplace with suspicion and consequently checks their loyalties at the office door? Dishonesty has crept into the workplace and undermined organizational performance. Navigating this environment is a difficult task for employees and managers alike.
Swapping Lies! takes the issue of deception in the workplace head on. In a powerful blend of academic research, common sense business advice, and home spun tales, the author presents a case for change. In doing so, he offers more than 80 "Tips" designed to help the reader navigate today's complex work environment. In a refreshing change in presentation and style this author provides a third dimension in his footnotes. In addition to a comprehensive list of references, the author uses the footnote as a running commentary on the main text. Much like an alter ego, each footnote adds a deeper insight to both the subject at hand and the author himself.
All in all, Swapping Lies! is a real world view of today's organization and a no-nonsense approach to effective organizational management.
