Don’t Burp in the Boardroom:
Your Guide to Handling Uncommonly Common Workplace Dilemmas
By Rosalinda Oropeza Randall
Years ago, the office was a place where you wore a tie or a dress and didn’t dare refer to your boss by their first name. We all want to conform to the times and make the workplace an enjoyable, more relaxed environment, but how do we know when we’ve crossed the line into bad behavior?
Sassy, funny, blunt, and definitely not sugar coated, Don’t Burp in the Boardroom examines behavior in the workplace, from the warehouse to the top floor. While the outerwear may be different, the dilemmas from cubicle to corner office are the same.
Rosalinda Randall delves into common predicaments like food thieves, break room cliques, social media and electronics, office romances, and how to make a good impression when you’re new on the job. She also delves into the uncommonly common like catching your boss in an unfortunate position and how to avoid that one co-worker who always wants a hug.
In today’s fast-paced, crazy lifestyle we think we don’t have time for civility. We are a more casual society who doesn’t need all of that swanky talk. But Don’t Burp in the Boardroom talks about civility in a modern and realistic way. Rosalinda doesn’t offer a bunch of immovable rules; she offers options!
In the book, Rosalinda shares tips on:
- Preparing for the virtual interviewing
- 62 ways to upgrade your professional presence
- Responding to chivalrous acts
- What your ex-con coworker wants you to know
- How to graciously accept criticism
- Getting along in the cubicle world
