New Rules @ Work: My Book Review
5 Things I loved about “New Rules @ work”
- What you should say after being introduced
- How to accept a compliment graciously
- How to write thank you notes
- What to do if you are interrupted
- How to avoid taboo topics
When I was reading “New Rules @ work” I felt like taking a seminar BECAUSE in a seminar the trainer would (hopefully) share stories and experiences, you would (eventually) get to do tests, you would get to know the do’s and don’ts, and you would get to know other course seminars questions and dilemmas, too. And that for just $15! Great, I must say!Karin Schroeck-Singh
