Ok -- this may sound weird, but i'm trying to find any useful information on spurious/ BS speaking. Information such as why people do it, why its effective, how its generally done. etc. I assume that because its a common tactic in arguments and such ( grandstanding, equivocating, etc) that there must be some sort of resource out there...
If you don't have the skills for BSing maybe you shouldn't have taken that management possition.
As for BSing make sure you learn as many catch-phrases and buzz words for the subject at hand, then forget what they actually mean a guess (horribly) what the mean. Then get 3-15 cronnies and teach them what the words mean. Then start talking to people who actually know what they're talking about and engage in a heated debate that lasts the entire shift. Once done you should hopefully know how to pull things out of your ass.
If that doesn't work find a con artist or ex-con and get them to teach you.
If that doesn't work move to Nigeria and get formal trainning on BSing from a 419 scammer.
A little book: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Bullshit-Harry-G-Frankfurt/dp/0691122946][i]On Bullshit[/i][/url]
A bigger book: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Business-People-Speak-Like-Idiots/dp/0743269098][i]Why Business People Speak Like Idiots[/i][/url]
Both of them are good.
djork: perfect. I have spent most of my morning scouring the internet and amazon for books like these.
Lingerance: im not a amanager, more of a 'know thine enemy' type of situation. i do like the idea of being trained by some random nigerian though. might be a nice change of pace from my office.
