The Ape in the Corner Office
Understanding the Workplace Beast in All of UsDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
Real animals can teach us better ways to thrive in the workplace jungle. Nature built you to be nice. Doing favors, grooming coworkers with kind words, building coalitionsthese tools for getting ahead come straight from the jungle. The stereotypical Darwinian hard-charger supposedly thinks only about accumulating resources. But highly effective apes know it's often smarter to give them away. That doesn't mean it's a peaceable kingdom out there, however. Conniff shows that you can become more effective by understanding how other species negotiate the tricky balance between conflict and cooperation.
