ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781785043406
. . . and Lazy Employees (or how to deal with idiots at work).
Surrounded by idiots at work? 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 way.
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 behavioural expert Thomas Erikson is here to help.
Drawing on the simple four-colour system that made Surrounded by Idiots a global bestseller, Erikson shows how understanding your boss's behavioural tendencies as well as your own will lead to a more harmonious and productive workplace.
He also sets out what characterises an exemplary leader type and how you can adapt your behaviour 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.
Written with Erikson's signature humour and warmth, Surrounded by Bad Bosses (and Lazy Employees) will help you deal with the most hopeless managers and employees you can imagine - and keep you entertained along the way.

"The author of the bestselling phenomenon Surrounded by Idiots turns his scalpel-sharp gaze to the workplace in this invaluable guide to combating dire bosses and hopeless colleagues." - Waterstones.
"Surrounded by Idiots remains one of the most useful books that I’ve ever read, I thought it was full of insight and tips that I’ve applied and have found incredibly useful."
"Great for reflection. Many great ideas for improving communication."
"I found this to be far more insightful than I honestly thought it would be, both in relation to my own behaviours and those of others, some of the descriptions certainly brought various people to mind s well as a few 'that's exactly it!' moments. As well as that, I did find a few of the hints and tips throughout the book intriguing and I'm certainly going to be reading back through and noting those that I think will help (although I will not be dog-earing the pages!). Granted the 4 main personality groups may be a simplification, one that Erikson fully acknowledges and reminds the reader of throughout, but it is certainly a good starting point for understanding yourself and others in different roles, especially if, like me, you haven't read much around the subject." - Goodreads Reviews.
