Company Manners: An Insider Tells How to Succeed in the Real World of Corporate Protocol and Power Politics

Lois Wyse, Author McGraw-Hill Companies $16.95 (291p) ISBN 978-0-07-072193-7
From her experience with ruthless corporate practices, Wyse, president of an advertising firm that bears her name and a columnist for Good Housekeeping, sets out to expose the inner workings of executive life and to define the ingredients of success. In this aphoristic and anecdote-rich guide, she discusses ""secrets'' of achieving and retaining power as an entrepreneur or in a big corporation, including the ability to work as a team member without losing one's identity. Although she stresses that a company's interests are paramount, she also notes that it is good business to be loyal to clients and employees and treat them in a considerate manner. She urges chief executives to share with associates their aspirations for the company and for those involved in its operation as a means of fostering a common sense of purpose. 60,000 first printing; 50,000 ad/promo; Fortune Book Club, BOMC and Macmillan's Executive Program alternates; author tour.
