From the Author
A lot of us feel frustrated. We want to have absolute control over our lives, but we constantly find ourselves obliged to serve others. We feel that people don't listen to us at meetings; we feel that we are trying to please people we don't even like. Then we become even more frustrated when discover that the people we tried to please are getting promotion after promotion. What is going on?
The answer is quite simply that these less nice individuals know some things you don't know. They are doing certain things that cause you to be 'nice' to them, and they know how to make you follow their lead - whether you want to or not. If you find out what they are doing, you will be able to copy their ways if you choose. Additionally, simply recognizing their tactics will make you immune to them. You probably won't choose to behave like they do, but you can enjoy using some of their ways in order to get what you want.
We are creatures who judge each other on the basis of what we see and hear, so we need a complete mastery of both the image we project and the language we use. We also need an overview of power-play psychology. Get it: Understand it: Get ahead and its companion workbook offer you this, setting exercises to show you how to apply this knowledge in a way that fits your own unique needs. Both books are workbooks, providing many exercises. The main book provides lots of material on the strategies people use to gain the upper hand, and the companion workbook provides further work on verbal communication power. These books will provide you with skills to get ahead using knowledge and verbal dexterity.
