9780070391475: When Smart People Work for Dumb Bosses: How to Survive in a Crazy and Dysfunctional Workplace

Through extensive interviews with employees at all levels, William and Kathleen Lundin document typical "dumb" behavior demonstrated by management and survey the damage those behaviors can have on both the people and the organizations they work for. Using the popular "co-dependence" model, they provide therapeutic/psychological strategies and suggestions for combating the problem, showing both employees and management how to avoid the "dumb/smart" trap in order to become part of a healthier, more functional organization.

Product Description:

This text offers strategies for how smart employees can cope with the frustratingly stupid things bosses do and how bosses can avoid falling into the dumb trap.

From the Author:

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.
