Nicholson McBride's latest book is Savvy:  Dealing with People, Power and Politics at Work

Everyone has to deal with difficult people at work at some point in their lives, but not everyone is savvy enough to know how to deal with them effectively.  Savvy provides essential advice on mastering and developing the right skills to overcome these problems in order to boost your career.  Based upon brand new research and featuring the startling results of a worldwide survey on office politics, conducted by Nicholson McBride, the book is backed up with examples and case studies based upon Jane's extensive experience resulting in both a personal, accessible and practical resource for anyone looking to survive and thrive in the workplace.  It will help you understand colleagues' behaviour and power dynamics at work, and teach you how to negotiate them successfully.  The book also features a quiz to identify how savvy you are in the workplace.

With case studies and examples, Savvy will help you understand colleagues' behaviour and power dynamics at work, and learn how to negotiate them successfully.  It includes step-by-step advice on how to build a network, develop the right mindset, handle conflict, manage your boss, influence others and deal with a bully.

Practical and insightful, Savvy will enable you to master the necessary skills to deal with difficult situations, and is the essential office survival guide to help boost your career and ensure your professional success.
