Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Providing clear, practical guidelines for setting goals and translating goals into results, this lively, useful book for the tens of millions of Americans working in complex and unruly organizations of every sort and for students of both public administration and business.

Book News Annotation:

Haass (vice president and director, Foreign Policy Studies program at the Brookings Institution) provides guidelines on how to manage relationships, set goals, and translate them into success. His insights into delicate working relationships will benefit those in government, the corporate world, and the non-profit sector, as well as students of public administration and business. This is a revised edition of Power to Persuade, Houghton Mifflin, 1994. This edition includes anecdotes from the Clinton administration.

Synopsis:

Using a compass as his operating metaphor - your boss is north of you, your staff is south, colleagues are east and so on - Richard Haass provides practical guidelines for setting goals and translating goals into results for those working in complex and unruly organizations.

Synopsis:

How do you figure out what to do in a job? How do you get it done? How should you deal with demanding bosses? How can you get the most out of subordinates? What should you do to get along with difficult colleagues and handle powerful interest groups and the media? Just how can you succeed in a world where persuasion rather than direct command is the rule? Using a compass as his operating metaphor--your boss is north of you, your staff is south, colleagues are east and so on--Richard Haass provides clear, practical guidelines for setting goals and translating goals into results. The result is a lively, useful book for the tens of millions of Americans working in complex and unruly organizations of every sort and for students of both public administration and business. The Bureaucratic Entrepreneur is a new and updated edition of Haass's 1994 book, The Power to Persuade.
