Managers come in all varieties, and unfortunately you don't get to choose your preference. Too often, we find ourselves working for people who are tough to work for, difficult to "decode," or brilliant but inaccessible.Managing Your Manager is the answer to dealing with a problematic supervisor.

Placing manager "types" into real-world categories--from the Bully, Scientist, and Star to the Geek, Parent, and Con Artist--it provides everything you need to make your work life more satisfying and productive. Managing Your Manager gives you the tools to:

  • Categorize your boss based on telling traits
  • Create a solid working relationship
  • Avoid common pitfalls associated with certain types
  • Become a strong leader based on lessons learned from various bosses

    Managers of all types can provide invaluable learning experiences that can enhance your career. Managing Your Manager empowers you with the knowledge, skills,and savvy for dealing with any type of boss and excelling in your job.
