It's (Not) Just Business is a discussion about the way people think and behave in the workplace; and our search for personal fulfillment and career success. This is a true survival guide; written in-the-trenches with practical advice and important topics rarely discussed.
Business is filled with people; each with unique priorities, goals, objectives and emotions; and each seeing the world from a unique perspective. The book explains how to navigate in that complex and often unpredictable world.
Often viewed as a negative (and all-too-often maligned), politics at its core is simply the way in which people in groups make decisions. While you may preserve your values, getting in the game is what earns you your successes.
The craft of management is rarely embraced by folks who are more focused on doing a job or meeting particular goals. We are left with lots of room for improvement. The book talks about surviving and thriving in a world of imperfect management.
Negotiating skills are a day-to-day necessity for almost every one of us. It is what gets our ideas heard, concepts sold and even helps determine where we go to lunch. The book discusses common tactics and techniques.
Mark Nicholas' diverse background as an attorney, business-person and entrepreneur over the course of more than two decades provides an invaluable insight into the in-the-trenches business world.
