Have you ever sat in a meeting, observed a manager, or one of your peers, or even a subordinate, and wondered "How is this possible?" How is it possible that work does not stick to this person? How is it possible that every shred of responsibility rolls off, like water rolls off a duck. How can it be, that no matter how hard anyone tries to corner this person, force them to make a decision, make a commitment, accept a responsibility, these efforts are thwarted. How is it that time after time, while everyone else leaves a meeting with long lists of action items, this person, as if by magic, walks away with a clean slate, free of to-dos and commitments.
To the uninitiated it may seem superhuman. Like an Aikido expert at a randori practice, this person can take on a room full of determined opponents, and quickly, gracefully, fluidly neutralize them.
Some of the skills they have can be yours. With the Tao of Boss you can be the corporate Aikidoka, deflecting, redirecting, neutralizing your opponents energies until they are exhausted and thoroughly beaten. You can be the master of work avoidance! The graceful shedder of responsibility! The skillful deflector of decisions! Just let the Tao make your next statement, and watch your career trajectory rise!
Disclaimer: Do not grow overconfident! Tao of Boss is intended for self defense only!
While it gives you a great set of basic techniques you could use to dominate someone untrained in the corporate martial arts, it must be applied wisely, and never used to attack an opponent of equal or greater skill. Just as you would not enter the Ultimate Fighting Championship after taking a self defense class at the YMCA, using Tao of Boss to challenge an expert corporate fighter could be a costly mistake!
Used correctly, however, Tao of Boss will allow you to gain the respect of veteran corporate warriors, and absolutely dominate the undisciplined brawler foolish enough to attack you with nothing more than technical expertise, logic, facts, common sense, or a naive desire to get something done.
