If You Dread Coming To Work ...

A Listmania! list by Alexander "I like to share" (Des Moines, IA)
The list author says: "Your work should be a place where you feel inspired, creative, able to focus just on the job to be done. For a lot of people (including myself) it often feels like a battlefield/minefield/dungeon/poorly managed kindergarten. You could be an employee dealing with an inadequate boss, or a manager dealing with an unsupportive team. These books helped me to get a better perspective on the issue."
