The Book–The Compromise Trap: How to Thrive at Work Without Selling Your Soul
Why Read It? Compromises are part of our everyday work lives, but what happens when we start compromising personal values and beliefs?
Author Elizabeth Doty interviewed employees at all levels to learn more about the consequences people face when they enter into devil’s bargains and find themselves trapped in situations they are unwilling to stay in but are also unwilling, for many reasons, to leave.
The book advocates a six-point process that includes connecting to your strength, seeing the whole playing field, defining a “worth-enough” win, forming allies, making positive plays, and keeping your own score.
