The PC intro: In her book "Suck It Up Buttercup", Wendy Sellers will show you how to be a strong yet positive, effective leader using skills that motivate people to want to work hard for you and, eventually, increase the bottom line.
You will learn exactly how to be a leader people will follow.
The Real Intro: Dominant, direct leaders who don't get emotional get the job done, right? Take charge and cut to the chase, right? Other people who allow their emotions to get in the way of business need to just "suck it up." Right? Wrong! Suck It Up, Buttercup. You might be part of the problem.
This short book covers topics ranging from personality styles (how some personality styles rub people the wrong way) to communication (which almost always goes wrong) and lack of common sense. Chapter 10 is an "Acting Lesson" which challenges you to change (but only for 15 minutes a day).
