Item description for Why Buy In?: The Survival Primer for Free Thinkers in the Stereotypical Business World by T. B. Fisher...

X Gen? Y Gen? Baby Boomer? Why Buy-in? There is not a person in any facet of business that hasn't asked themselves that very question.Quite possibly every day..Or every business hour. As a veteran corporate exec, T.B. Fisher became bemused about the rote behavior of the stereotypical businessperson. Why Buy-In? is a book dedicated to the idea that people can maintain their individual idiosyncrasies while keeping their jobs. This message is particularly constructive for x-gen, the upcoming y-gen or ethnic polarized employees. Formatted to be read one page per week, Why Buy-In? is a lighthearted, self-help, business manual. Additionally, this book lays the foundation for those given the dreaded task of managing employees who have chosen not to buy-in.

Reviews - What do customers think about Why Buy In?: The Survival Primer for Free Thinkers in the Stereotypical Business World?

weLEAD Book Review from the Editor of  Jul 28, 2005
Why Buy In? is a short but deeply reflective book written for those who have consciously chosen not to become another yellow pencil in the modern business hierarchy. T. B. Fisher has written this book to inform and encourage leaders that they can remain true to their own values and individuality without "buying-in" to the command and control corporate environment. Fisher does this in an amusing way that often leaves you to ponder his convictions long after the book is closed.

Why Buy In? is formatted to be read one page per week for an entire 52 week year. Each weekly page offers a few philosophical paragraphs that distill the wisdom of T.B. Fisher from his years of surviving the "international corporate circus". The end of each page offers a weekly personal statement validating positive principles or opportunities for growth. Also buried within the book like jewels to be discovered, are Fisher's own 12 steps to business independence. For example, on Week 34 Fisher cautions the reader not to let strong morals and unwavering ideals grow into inflexibility and the appearance of being a control freak. The concluding weekly personal statement ends by affirming, "My eighth step is to assure myself everyday that my quest to maintain my straight path of ideals doesn't become a narrow path of one-way thinking".

If you consider yourself a free thinker, this is a book you will definitely want to read. It will make you chuckle, and it will make you nod your head and say, "that is right-on". But perhaps the biggest benefit of the book is that it will remind you why you celebrate your individuality and have chosen not to sacrifice your true soul to fit into a dysfunctional corporate world.
