GUST … Timothy Johnson’s at it again

Just opened a package in the mail – it’s Timothy Johnson’s new GUST: the “Tale” Wind of Office Politics.

Where does the guy get the time? It seems like just a few months ago that he came out with Race Through the Forest: a Project Management Fable.

Very cool … I’ll be reading it in the next week or so and post some thoughts. Thanks, Tim!

FYI here’s Tim’s blog post announcing the book. And if you’re wondering what GUST stands for, here’s his explanation:

GUST is an acronym to describe a process of approaching office politics:

  • Game – figure out what is being manipulated and the source of friction
  • Understand – determine what is behind the players, the behaviors, and the motivations
  • Strategize – establish an approach that will get you as close to win-win as possible
  • Take Action – get your ducks in a row as you implement your political strategy
