There are a staggering number of myths, stereotypes, and out-of-date rules that abound in the workplace. This can make it feel impossible to truly know how to get the most out of your career, your team, and your company. In Myths

Fascinating real-life case studies from organizations around the world display the myths (and how to overcome them) in practice.

Myths of Work combines business thinking with psychology to give you practical insights, a lively writing style, and a handy dip-in-and-out structure to form your ultimate guide to becoming a better and enlightened manager.
