About the Book

This book provides you with savvy, practical advice for coping with managers and supervisors who are mean, incompetent, unethical, and worse.

Being saddled with a terrible supervisor can turn even the best job into a nightmare. Unfortunately, not every boss is the great symbol of managerial perfection one would hope for. In fact, more people than not consider themselves stuck with a "bad boss." But short of remaining miserable or quitting a job, what can be done about it?

A Survival Guide for Working with Bad Bosses includes powerful strategies for not only working with -- but thriving under -- such bad boss types as:

  • The Great Betrayers -- how to defend yourself against a corporate backstabber
  • The Know-Nothing Bosses -- what to do when a boss is clueless
  • The Bad Communicators -- how to respond when a boss is consistently unclear

Whether a boss is high-strung, incompetent, or a power-mad tyrant, A Survival Guide for Working with Bad Bosses has the solution.
