Top Customer Reviews
This is a brilliant supporting read to "It's Okay to be the Boss".
From the manifesto of its title to its snappy practical suggestions ("Feed this big ego a big snack"), It's Okay to Manage Your Boss is empowering, reassuring, and on point: Every employee needs and deserves to have priorities and expectations spelled out, and, in the absence of the mythical perfect boss, every employee will sometimes--or very often--have to take the initiative to ensure that they are. Similarly, every employee may sometimes have to help her boss track her progress and reward her accordingly. This is not a bad thing, Tulgan explains; this is the way to become the best employee one can (and, coincidentally, to prepare for greater workplace responsibility).
Through all this modern empowering language shines the rock-solid common sense of our grandparents' generation: Know what you're doing, apply yourself, pay attention to the details, and be polite. In other words, respect the work, yourself, and the people who do it with you.
-Show up on time
-Don't make fun of people
-Get your work done
This may have been written for a different audience. I'll attempt to pick it up again and see if I can find anything useful.
