The Organizational Zoo
I was introduced to an interesting book and web site, The Organizational Zoo, by Arthur Shelley which offers humorous observations of the characteristics and behaviours of the other creatures in your "organizational Zoo".
Arthur identifies essential survival guidelines for the ‘safari that is your career’ and suggests how to recognize the different zoo creatures and deal with them.
