A hilarious and indispensable guide to the weirdness of the workplace from Esquire editor and Entrepreneur etiquette columnist Ross McCammon
 
Ten years ago, Ross McCammon made an incredible and unexpected transition from working at an in-flight magazine in suburban Dallas to landing his dream job at Esquire in New York. What followed was a period of almost debilitating anxiety and awkwardness—interspersed with minor instances of professional glory—as McCammon learned how to navigate the workplace while feeling entirely ill-equipped for achieving success in his new career.
 
Works Well with Others is McCammon’s “relentlessly funny and soberingly insightful”* journey from impostor to authority, a story that reveals the workplace for what it is: an often absurd landscape of ego and fear guided by social rules that no one ever talks about. By mining his own experiences at the magazine, McCammon provides advice on everything from firm handshakes to small talk in elevators to dealing with jerks and underminers. Here is an inspirational new way of looking at your job, your career, and success itself; an accessible guide for those of us who are smart, talented, and ambitious but who aren’t well-“leveraged” and don’t quite feel prepared for success . . . or know what to do once we’ve made it.


 

十年前,羅斯·麥卡蒙(Ross McCammon)實現了令人難以置信的意外轉變,從原來在達拉斯郊區的機上雜誌社工作,轉換成在紐約的埃斯基爾 (Esquire) 雜誌社,找到他夢寐以求的工作。 隨之而來的是一段幾乎令人虛弱的焦慮和尷尬的時期 – 穿插著輕微的職業榮耀 – 正如羅斯麥卡蒙學會了如何駕馭職場,同時感到完全沒有能力在他的新職業中取得成功。
 
《與他人合作》(Works Well with Others) 是麥卡蒙從冒名頂替者到權威的 "無情搞笑和深刻的見解" 旅程,這個故事揭示了職場的真實面目: 一個自然荒謬的自我和恐懼景觀,由社會規則引導,無人問津。通過挖掘自己在雜誌上的經歷,麥卡蒙就從堅定的握手到電梯裡的閒聊,再到處理混蛋和破壞者等問題,都提供了建議。這裡有一個鼓舞人心的新方式來看待你的工作,你的職業生涯,和成功本身;對於我們這些聰明、才華橫溢、雄心勃勃但卻沒有“充分利用”並且沒有為成功做好準備的人而言,這是一本可容易獲得的指南…或者在我們一旦達到目標之後知道該怎麼做。
