Taming the Abrasive Manager

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Have you ever worked for a tyrannical boss? Have you ever worked with someone brilliant in their field but also gifted at demoralizing employees and pissing off peers?

Help is here!

Taming the Abrasive Manager is a quick read and a should be a mandatory read for anyone who works for (or even near) one of those “challenged” managers. Dr. Laura Crawshaw aka The Boss Whisperer shows you in fun, easy to read stories and brilliant instructions based in 25 years of real-world experience taming misguided leaders who terrorized their workplace. ¬†What I enjoyed most about this book is that the author doesn’t stoop to cheap¬†caricatures; she succinctly and precisely nails the core driver of “bad” boss behavior – FEAR BASED TRIGGERS – and shows you how you can help yourself and help a boss see the light.
