When Reginald Ramsey graduated from college with a degree in electronic engineering technology, multiple job offers came in … and he thought he had it made.
As he worked hard, he thought he’d be promoted and earn lots of perks. But his concept of “working hard” did not give him the results he wanted.
He realized that his lack of results wasn’t for lack of trying but could be traced to his failure to understand the white-collar work environment. In this book, he highlights important topics he wish he’d thought about earlier on, including:
• the role of a mentor—and why it’s so important to have a good one;
• why emotional intelligence is so important in the workplace;
• unwritten rules in a corporate setting;
• ways to embrace feedback on the job.
If you were raised in a humble working class home environment, it can be difficult
to excel in a white-collar setting—no matter how well you did in school. Finding your way along this new terrain requires a different mindset.
The journey to change the way you think will be filled with setbacks and disappointments, but by applying what you learn in this book, you’ll find the fast track to success.
