Abstract:

If an elephant stomps on your head and there is no one around to see it, did it stomp on your head at all? The answer is yes, if that elephant is your boss. Can anything be done about these enormous, gray, and sometimes smelly beasts? The answer is yes, if you know Business Zen. For thousands of years, Zen masters have plumbed the secrets of the universe while wearing comfortable clothing. Now you, too, can learn the wisdom of the ancients and win valuable prizes. It may be easier than you dare to imagine. Don't you already spend a good part of your day sitting and thinking about nothing for hours on end? That's Zen! You're already doing it! The author offers the nicest possible way to manipulate one's executive elephant to achieve enlightenment--and power.
