Don't let a bad boss keep you from being successful!

If you've ever been frustrated by a boss who wouldn't lead, you're not alone. New York Times bestselling leadership author John C. Maxwell knows this because the number one question he gets asked is about how to lead when the boss isn’t a good leader.

In this book, adapted from the million-selling The 360-Degree Leader, Maxwell unveils the keys to successfully navigating the challenges of working for a bad boss. Maxwell teaches how to:

  • position yourself for current and future success,
  • take the high road with a poor leader,
  • avoid common pitfalls,
  • work well with teammates, and
  • develop influence wherever you find yourself.

Practicing the principles taught in this book will result in endless opportunities—for your organization, your career, and your life. You can learn how to lead when your boss can’t (or won’t).
