The Collected Issues of Point Lookout

Availability: In stock

The Collected Issues of Point Lookout is a collection of past issues of Point Lookout, my weekly email newsletter of tips, insights and perspectives that help people in dynamic problem-solving organizations find better ways to work with each other. The articles are from 2001 and 2012. The book gives concrete, nuts-and-bolts methods for dealing with real-life situations.


Have you ever found yourself sitting in a meeting, listening for the third time to drivel you just couldn't believe people would actually say out loud, and wondering how much longer this would go on until they finally agreed to what anyone with half a brain knew they'd have to do anyway? And then groaned to yourself when you realized that your next meeting would be more of the same?

Or have you ever had the kind of "forehead-slapping moment" when you suddenly realized why the group didn't go for your last suggestion, and then wondered how you could possibly have been so naïve as to have proposed it in the first place?

The Collected Issues of Point Lookout is a collection of short articles that give tips, insights and new perspectives on life in the modern workplace. It's drawn from the 2001 through 2012 issues of my newsletter, Point Lookout, and it's filled with the insights you need to make sense of it all. It helps you avoid the traps and pitfalls that await you at work, and it guides you into new choices that can make life at work more enjoyable and rewarding.

The Collected Issues of Point Lookout makes a wonderful and unique gift for a friend, a colleague, or a spouse who faces any of the ordinary — and many of the not-so-ordinary — challenges of working today.

It includes all I wish I had purchased this when I started working. If so, it would have saved me a lot of heartburn and helped me to propel my career into higher orbit. It increases your sensitivity, your capacity to see and understand the politics and work life. Buy it, read it, and re-read it. Thanks Rick for bringing out such wisdom.

of the content of Geese Don't Land on Twigs, Why Dogs Wag, Loopy Things We Do, Things We Believe That Maybe Aren't So True, and The Questions Not Asked, but it's more valuable than buying all five for three reasons. First, it contains the articles from 2011 and 2012, which none of the others do. Second, it's completely searchable, so when you search this file, you're searching all five plus the extra years, too. Third, and more important, many articles contain hyperlinks to other articles, and some of those links cross the boundaries of Geese, Dogs, Loopy, Things, and Questions, and 2011-12. So it's one seamless resource that provides endless hours of insight and fresh perspectives.
