Survival of the Savvy
IN THIS SUMMARY
Each day in the business world, a corporate version of “survival of the fittest” unfolds in the form of power plays, turf battles, deceptions, and sabotages. As a result, individuals’ careers are thwarted and companies’ resources, and even their bottom lines, are threatened. It is possible, say the authors, two of the nation’s most successful corporate leadership consultants, to create ethical, yet street-smart strategies, and to develop skills for navigating corporate politics and gain “impact with integrity” to realize both individual and corporate success.
Survival of the Savvy intelligently demonstrates that becoming savvy does not imply sacrificing ethical standards; that it is possible to retain self-respect and to gain influence and power, to choose noble ends and accomplish them through moral means.
