"A good manager in the corporate climate of the post-internet boom has to be shrewd, competitive, observant, and
tough as nails. The paradox is that at the same time he or she is expected to be ultimately ethical, compassionate, likable and respectable.
The paradox is similar to mythology of dragons—in the Western world, they are demonic nemesis of the oldest heroes of literature—Beowulf and St. George. In the Eastern world, they are revered as beautiful, wise protectors.
The apparent paradox is a fantastic illustration of how businesspeople react to the unpredictable and often chaotic forces that steer businesses and careers
toward failure or success.
Looking at the same situation, one person sees danger where another sees opportunity.
The corporate world has always been full of dragons. How you deal with them (and how they deal with YOU)often depends more on your point of view than on the weapons you hold.
This book contains 50 essays about seeing ordinary business situations from an extra-ordinary point of view."
