THE FIRST BOOK THAT SHOWS HOW TO WORK WITH ANYONE WHO CAUSES CHAOS—INCLUDING YOURSELF!

For anyone struggling with too many projects, too little time, and too much paper, organizing guru Harriet Schechter—aka The Miracle Worker—offers innovative methods for managing  all types of workplace chaos.  And she shows you how to handle the real Chaos Creators:

• Bosses who expect you to cover for them

• Co-workers who leave messes for you to clean up

• Assistants who are even more overwhelmed than you are

• Clients who won’t return your phone calls

• And more!
