Summary Description

One of the biggest problems in the workplace today is that too many people play the “blame game.”  When things go wrong, they look for a scapegoat, often someone who isn’t really at fault.  And when things go right, they take credit for other people’s ideas and achievements.

In our summary of The Blame Game:  How the Hidden Rules of Credit and Blame Determine Our Success or Failure, organizational psychologist Ben Dattner explains why this problem persists and how you can learn to avoid its pitfalls.

Dattner is an adjunct professor of psychology at New York University and the founder of Dattner Consulting, an organizational development and executive coaching firm that helps leaders, teams, and organizations solve their credit and blame problems. 

This summary will provide several practical approaches that you can use to escape the blame game and prevent it from derailing your career and destroying your organization.
