Just came across an interesting book:
Nan DeMars: You’ve Got To Be Kidding: How To Keep Your Job Without Losing Your Integrity.
Here’s what I wrote in my review:
The topic isn’t glamorous, which is probably why people aren’t rushing to buy it. This book does a really good job of warning workers of their liability. The old excuse, “My boss told me,” doesn’t work anymore.
If you read about the Enron situation, many people involved were simply naive. Even the Abu Ghraib scandal was allowed to erupt because the participants were young and just didn’t know what to do. You don’t have to be young. These days it is *very* easy to get in over your head.
Nan DeMars tells you exactly what to do and gives you specific scripts to take care of yourself, while risking your job as little as possible. She covers sensitive topics, such as employee confidentiality, and directly attacks the issue of what to do when there’s a conflict between your loyalty to the organization and your loyalty to your boss. (The organization wins but you have to know how to handle it.)
