by Mardine Johnson
It can be a challenge to find a balance between the need to just make money and survive versus the need to find fulfillment. Corporate America has its own culture that is not easy to understand or navigate. There can be communication problems, customer problems, manager problems, or teamwork problems; if any of these look familiar to you, Mardine Johnson has written a workbook that may help you identify solutions, rather than lay blame on others (or yourself). In nine simple exercises, she condenses the problems of working in a big corporation to easily manageable individual solutions. This workbook, a pencil, and the willingness to examine yourself are all you need to begin establishing your place in Corporate America.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
For the past eighteen years, Mardine Johnson has traveled extensively around the United States while working for corporate America. For ten of those years, she has worked for a company based in Atlanta. Born and raised on the West Coast, Mardine believes the sky is the limit, but ten years of working in hospitals as a Medical Technologist, followed by years of working for corporations, has taught her there is no free ride to the stratosphere. “Determination, hard work, careful planning, and recognizing the value of each individual whom you encounter is what it is all about,” says Johnson.
An attempt to understand and analyze her own work experiences (some of them painful) led the author to write this workbook.
