Product description

Review

Politics are a reality in any organization, but as this terrific book shows, you don't have to throw your ethics and integrity out the window to master the game. Brandon and Seldman's fresh approach to a taboo topic is as entertaining as it is inspiring. Survival of the Savvy will teach you how to avoid the ego trips and journey with others to greatness.
Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and Customer Mania!

Seldman and Brandon have years of experience coaching and training at companies like PepsiCo to help executives navigate the complexities and ambiguities of organizational politics with integrity and positive impact. Their practical tips on reading political styles, building a network, and exercising verbal discipline are invaluable.
Michael D. White, Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo International

Finally, a book that speaks the truth about corporate power, influence, and the science of relationships. A must read for serious corporate leaders and, equally important, aspiring leaders!
Jovita Thomas-Williams, Vice President, Human Resources, MGM Grand Detroit Casino

Survival of the Savvy provides CEOs, business leaders, and their teams with vital new insights and essential skills. The authors set the bar at a new height in describing how to effectively understand and influence others and how to ensure a values- based and high-performance work culture.
Edward Ludwig, Chairman, CEO, and President, Becton, Dickinson and Company

Brandon and Seldman, two clever writers, give a lifeline to anyone treading water or trying synchronized swimming in the corporate shark tank...They fill their book with practical, tactical tips to help protect their readers' assets.
Harvey Mackay, author of Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive

Brandon and Seldman tap into the nervous system of corporations and offer fascinating straight talk about a tacit business taboo -- their writing is engaging, entertaining, and easy to relate to.
Deborah Harrington, National Training Director, Citibank North America

They're not kidding when they say "survival;" even Darwin would have approved of this objective look at the precise intricacies of human behavior. If you take office politics seriously, you'll appreciate the weighty analysis Brandon and Seldman bring to even the most obscure workplace scheming. Brandon and Seldman take on the role of corporate anthropologists, dissecting how office politics work and what you can do to master them ethically.
FAST COMPANY'S READER'S CHOICE AWARD REVIEW, FEBRUARY, 2005

"Ever had an idea stolen by someone brash enough to present it as his or her own idea at a VP meeting? Brandon and Seldman offer serious research to substantiate this all-too-prevalent work problem and outline the many ways the politically inept can develop the savvy political instincts we all need to feel valued at our work."
BOOKPAGE

This is a book about what these two mega-powered business consultants call using "high-integrity" politics as a useful change agent...Not incidentally, through case studies, they analyze self-defense strategies to insulate executives from well-known banditos lurking along the trailway to the top.
BUSINESS 2 BUSINESS, JANUARY, 2005

This work will help employees navigate office politics in almost any kind of setting. Corporate consultants Brandon and Seldman offer practical advice, starting with the assumption that engaging in office politics is vital to one's career. Recommended for larger public libraries and all business management collections.
