Deck The Halls-Good Boss, Bad Boss AudioBook Review & Giveaway 12/12

Good Boss, Bad Boss

How to Be the Best... and Learn from the Worst
If you have a job, chances are you have a boss. Indeed, everybody has a boss, whether it's someone at the supervisory, managerial, or executive level.

And if you're like everybody else, you know that keeping the boss happy with your performance is a major focus of your daily corporate life and career.

Problem is - and as Bob Sutton made clear in his classic THE NO ASSHOLE RULE - too many of us work for bosses who are jerks. And that's the starting point of BOSS. Based upon the thousands of letters, emails, and conversations Sutton has received since the publication of NO ASSHOLE RULE, he now focuses his common sense approach to what it is that delineates the great bosses in our world from the ones who are just good, so-so, or even worse.

Using real-life case studies, psychological research, and a thorough scan of the pertinent literature, Sutton delivers a pinpoint accounting of what the best bosses do. In short, Sutton delivers a blueprint manifesto for anyone who has been elevated into a position of authority, or would like to be.

About the Author~
  Robert I. Sutton is Professor of Management Science and Engineering in the Stanford Engineering School, where he is Co-Director of the Center for Work, Technology, and Organization, an active researcher and cofounder in the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, and a cofounder and active member of the new "," a multi-disciplinary program that teaches and spreads "design thinking." Sutton is also an IDEO Fellow and a Professor of Organizational Behavior, by courtesy, at Stanford Graduate School of Business. 
 My Review~

I definitely recommend "Good boss, Bad boss". As it shows you both sides of the coin so to speak..He also throws humor in so it makes it more interesting.
This book does what so few management and leadership books are able to as it tells you about real stories so you can relate. Anyone who has a boss, or is a boss, will benefit from reading this book.
He comes up a new term "bosshole."
