BOOK DESCRIPTION

Just about everybody has reported to a bad boss or knows someone else who has. Is your company suffering from the distress caused by an abrasive leader, in a way that it negatively impacts overall performance and the well-being of individuals?

Are you or other employees complaining, disengaging, and leaving the company because of the boss? Do you often hear stories of interpersonal aggression that seems impermeable to feedback and warnings?

Life is too short for people to work this way. No one should be stuck in an environment where they constantly question how long they can continue working under a difficult boss.
