About the Book

"Managers and executives are trying harder than ever to keep up and stay effective, relying on cross-functional coordination, better planning and resource sharing, simplified processes, and speeded-up work ... Overcommitment grows and burnout looms. But even amid the seeming chaos of the matrix organization--where you are constantly being asked to do things by people who aren't your boss, and where you must ask things of others who don't report to you--there is always that special person who seems indispensable, who seems to thrive on complexity, and who is able to stay focused and positive and get the right things done: this is the go-to person. In this ... book, talent guru ... Bruce Tulgan reveals the secrets of the go-to person in our new world of work"--

Book Synopsis

What's the secret to being indispensable—a true go-to person—in today's workplace?

With new technology, constant change and uncertainty, and far-flung virtual teams, getting things done at work is tougher and more complex than ever. We're in the midst of a collaboration revolution, working with everyone, all the time, across silos and platforms. But sometimes it feels like we're stuck in a no-win cycle—dealing with an overwhelming influx of asks, with unclear lines of communication and authority. Overcommitment syndrome looms larger than ever before.

But even amid the seeming chaos, there's always that indispensable go-to person who thrives on their many working relationships with people all over the organization chart. How do they do it? Go-to people consistently make themselves valuable to others, maintain a positive attitude of service, are creative and tenacious, and take personal responsibility for getting the right things done.

In this game-changing yet practical book, talent guru and bestselling author Bruce Tulgan reveals the secrets of the go-to person in our new world of work. Based on an intensive study of people at all levels, in all kinds of organizations, Tulgan shows how go-to people think and behave differently, building up their influence with others—not by trying to do everything for everybody but by doing the right things at the right times for the right reasons, regardless of whether they have the formal authority.

This book will teach you to:

  • Understand the peculiar mathematics of real influence
  • Lead from wherever you are—up, down, sideways, and diagonal
  • Know when to say no or not yet, and how to say yes
  • Keep getting better and better at working together

And much more. The Art of Being Indispensable at Work is the new How to Win Friends and Influence People for an era in which the guardrails of traditional management have been pulled away.
