What is the Secret to Surviving in Today’s Organization?
Why is it so hard to rise to the top in the corporate world or even the large non-profit organizations? Talent may be a factor and the numbers competing are a possibility, but is there something else?
James J. Heaphey, who has advised the largest corporations and others on organizational matters, says yes, there is an underlying reason why some make it and most do not, and talent often has nothing to do with it. James Heaphey, an organizational expert, tells why in How to Survive in an Organization.
James Heaphey’s book is about organizational power, how it works, how to deal with it and how to get it and on the lower levels, how to hook into it. It is a reality check that is immediately recognized by those in the organizational scene as a “splash of cold water.”

He has a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley and is a Professor Emeritus, Rockefeller College of Public Policy and Administration, State University of New York.
