9781846680397: The Real Office: All the office questions you never dared to ask

"Full of wit and wisdom."-Time Out

"Hilarious-has just the advice you need."-Daily Mail

"Exposes a wide spectrum of office problems and dilemmas . . . compulsive and thought-provoking reading."-City Business Magazine

Problems at work? Lucy Kellaway has the answers:

"Should I tell my boss what I think of him?"
"How can I be more political and still be myself?"
"I have to sack my friend or fire someone better."
"I am a foreigner and my views are ignored."

These are typical conundrums faced by many of us, and just a few of the hundreds sent every week to Lucy Kellaway's popular "agony aunt" column in the Financial Times. Whether it's a problem of working with an ex-lover, firing a litigious employee, or dealing with accusations of racism, Kellaway's advice is always simple and practical, and essential reading for those trying to cope with troublesome co-workers. Better still, there is the wisdom, rage, expertise, and folly of the managers and self-appointed experts who add their thoughts.

Lucy Kellaway is the management columnist at the Financial Times. She was Columnist of the Year in 2006, and is the author of Sense and Nonsense in the Office and Martin Lukes: Who Moved My BlackBerry?.

Review:

'covers the gamut of problems that can crop up in office life...her answers will also offer much needed help and balm to soothe the troubled office waters.' - Publishing News'...how to survive the awkward dilemmas of office life.' - Radio 4 The Bottom LineIt dispenses water-cooler wisdom, not motivational gobbledygook...Traditional management advice has not addressed the nitty gritty of everyday office life. But a new book gets to the heart of those tricky questions that employees, rather than employers, want answered.' - Sunday Times
