Getting Things Done When You Are Not In Charge: How to Succeed from a Support Position.

Geoffrey M. Bellman has never been in charge, but has invested nearly thirty years "getting things done" in organizations, first as a manager and professional in three Fortune 500 companies and then as an external consultant. In Getting Things Done When You Are Not in Charge, he shows readers how to empower themselves, while increasing their work contribution and personal satisfaction. He explains how to secure backing from key players, build working relationships, take risks wisely, and earn the respect of management. Along the way, he gives simple rules for establishing patterns of success, for taking risks, collaborating, negotiating, and setting priorities.

Getting Things Done When Your Are Not In Charge is a practical, easy-to-read guide on how to lead change from the middle of an organization and, in the process, how to discover new meaning in your work.

Bellman delivers an extraordinary number of thoughtful "how-to's" that will make any workplace happier and more productive. He takes the toughest of subjects -- like office politics -- and deals with them in understandable and straightforward ways.
