Protect Yourself – and Your Job. A one-of-a-kind corporate survival guide based on the combined wisdom of 102 people with real jobs

Suzen Fromstein has created the ultimate corporate survival guide for any person starting out or in transition. The survival strategies identified in Suits and Ladders: Ten Proven Ways to Keep Your Job Safe (with a few jokes thrown in) are universal and transcend national borders, industries and genders.

These are the same strategies 102 real people with real jobs use to keep their corporate jobs safe. Following their lead gives you a better chance of survival, or at least, gives you a fighting chance at survival. Whether you work in Canada or France, in financial services or for a not-for-profit there are ten things you can do right now to stabilize your cash flow, improve your professional outcomes and keep your job safe.

In her foreword, Barbara Morris-Blake who has interviewed and coached over 10,000 junior-to-senior level people over the past twenty years and whose articles on leadership development and personal effectiveness frequently appear in the media says, “Although there are many credible business books on corporate survival, I have not come across a book quite like Suits and Ladders…(it) is the exit interview and the corporate survival coach you wish you had.”

You will discover:
• Your boss’s career is the only thing that really matters.
• What you learned yesterday may not apply to today.
• What you say and do, can and will be used against you.
• Real people are far more interesting than the voices in your head.

From heightening self-awareness to championing a positive attitude and fuelling your workplace passion, Suzen has thrown enough seeds on the soil to grow a whole new crop of quality, secure and forward thinking professionals. The bonus? This volume is transferable to private life and personal relationships, too!”~ Nina Spencer, International Keynote Speaker and Canadian Best-Selling Author of Getting Passion Out of Your Profession (and 2014 release of A Time to Creep, A Time to Soar: Lessons learned for work and life from climbing Kilimanjaro)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone in business should read this... The way this book was put together had me intrigued. The business books I usually read are of a single person's success and how they got there and how you can supposedly achieve the same. This was different as it was more of an overview of what 102 successful people went through to get to where they are. Instead of being a individual how-to story, it shows the similarities of what worked and what didn't work to get to where they got in life. This set Suits And Ladders apart from the bulk of what is out there. Another thing that I really enjoyed about the book was the way it was written and how each chapter took a different look at digging your heels in. The research that went into the creation of the book was also well documented in a way that makes it easy to follow. When you then add in the humour of the author, it makes for a book that you don't want to put down. It is very rare that a book about business keeps my interest and has me reading the whole thing in a couple of sittings instead of over the course of weeks while reading something more captivating. While the topic could end up very dull, pretentious, and/or preachy, Suits And Ladders finds the perfect balance of easy to read, different points of view, and quite bit of humour making it a fun and enjoyable read. I recommend this book for anyone that is in the business world that wants to get ahead, or at the very least make sure they are safe where they are.
