A Christmas Gift For The Boss in Your Life
I've observed an unpredictable phenomenon. People are slipping our book into their workplaces, letting it lay around, hoping a manager will pick it up. Sandra Schneider, owner of Falls Book Shoppe in Menomonee Falls, Wisc came up with a cute idea. She gift wraps the book and promotes it as a Christmas gift. It's a suggestion that makes sense to me. Or, put another way, how to communicate Getting Scrooged.
It's a sad fact of life, but no matter what kind of business or institution you work in, as an employee you are often subjected to demoralizing--downright dumb--behavior from managers, sometimes on a daily basis. Shortsighted management decisions, thoughtless actions--even rude behavior--are as commonplace as they are unbearable. Furthermore, they are damaging not just on a personal level, but on the organizational level as well. In When Smart People Work for Dumb Bosses, William and Kathleen Lundin bring corporate stupidity out of the closet. Through an extensive collection of personal and refreshingly candid interviews with employees at every level, the authors expose a broad range of inflexible, short-sighted, insensitive, and otherwide "dumb" behaviors on the part of management and survey the damage they can have on the people and the organizations they work for, as well as offer solutions for employees to cope. Using the popular co-dependence model to demonstrate why management stupidity is often condoned and even supported, the Lundins provide valuable therapeutic/psychological strategies and suggestions for understanding and dealing with each type of problem in a way that won't cost readers their self-respect, or their job. Milton Moscowitz, co-author of The 100 Best Companies to Work for in America calls it "an inspirational book."
