Linked to the concepts of globalisation is the recognition being given to the importance of the workplace as a site of learning. This book provides a framework which does not have its foundations in just one academic discipline, but rather gives a range of perspectives drawn from psychology, social psychology, sociology and critical theory.
When you work for a big company, you get used to sending stuff off to different departments – sending expenses to the finance department, phoning the IT department for technical assistance, calling on the marketing department for help with events and conferences. However, if you move to starting your own business, you’ll soon realise that you have to wear several different hats during the course of the day.
Working for yourself, the buck falls to you on almost every front. Not only do you have to work on making sales or winning contracts, but you also have to take care of all the back office functions – at least until you’re successful enough to be able to hire employees or to outsource certain functions.
The good thing is that if there’s something you don’t know how to do, you can always find out how. The internet is a great source of information on how to do things. And most processes are relatively simple; they just seem complicated when you have never done them before.
For example, anyone can keep the books for a company; it’s just a question of keeping accurate records. You can do the donkey work in terms of filing receipts, expenses, income etc, and then pay an accountant to check them over and audit them for you.
Similarly, you can organise a money transfer whether it’s domestic or international, as these can be done online. So whether you need to pay invoices on a regular basis or have one off payments to make, you can do this from the comfort of your own desk once your business bank account is online. It’s also a good idea to set up a foreign exchange account for the times that you need to move money internationally.
Whatever function you need for your business, it’s possible to find a way of doing it yourself, and if not, you should buy in assistance on an ad hoc basis rather than taking on an employee. This will be the cheapest option and will save you the necessity of complying with regulation for employees such as sick pay and holiday pay.
Life is about getting what you want, and sales skills can improve your life. Most people resist spelling out what they want, but those who know what they want and know how to ask for it are far more successful in all aspects of life. This book highlights the psychology behind getting people to do what you want.
