Surrounded by bad bosses
Fed up with a bad boss or lazy colleagues? Thomas Erikson, author of the runaway international bestseller “Surrounded by Idiots,” will help you handle them and get things done, the right wayاضافة اعلان

Why is good leadership so rare? Everyone has to manage up to some extent but frankly some bosses are worse than others. If you're being driven crazy by a micro-manager, frequently drown under your boss's unreasonable expectations or struggle with being handed out responsibilities but no authority, international behavioral expert Thomas Erikson is here to help.

Drawing on the simple four-color system that made “Surrounded by Idiots” a global bestseller, Erikson shows how understanding your boss's behavioral tendencies as well as your own will lead to a more harmonious and productive workplace.

He also sets out what characterizes an exemplary leader type and how you can adapt your behavior to model it. Because there are two sides to every coin, Erikson also looks at employees themselves and why some colleagues frequently underachieve and what you can do to change this.
