From the Inside Flap

Do you have a boss who acts like a demanding, stubborn, fickle, distracted, or needy child or engages in bullying tantrums, micro-management, mood swings, or endless whining? We all have to deal with imperfect bosses. Unfortunately, some of us have to deal with bad bosses who—if you aren't careful—can sink your career along with their own.

In Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant (TOT), Lynn Taylor gives you practical, real-world tactics for dealing with childish boss behavior without sacrificing your principles or exacerbating office strife. Wielding truth wrapped in hilarity, Taylor takes you behind the bossy blustering so that you can achieve your goals—and career excellence. Bosses will also benefit from this guide to gain insight on what not to do with their teams. If you are a CEO, you know instinctively that Terrible Office Tyrants (TOTs) wreak havoc in your company, harming the bottom line. A special section will help you stop TOT behavior in its tracks–for a more humanized, productive workplace.

Like you, Taylor knows childish behavior when she sees it. In fact, bad bosses and kids who act out have plenty in common. But tirades, moodiness, and demanding behavior don't have to ruin your workday. In Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant (TOT), Taylor shows you how to build positive relationships with even the most out-of-control boss and thrive in your job. The key to success lies in dealing with a TOT much like a parent deals with a troublesome toddler.

No matter what kind of TOT you face each day, Taylor profiles them all here—from brats to little lost lambs—and shows you how to successfully manage their behavior for the sake of your career and your sanity. Based on extensive interviews and in-depth research, this indispensable guide demonstrates that with the right approach, you can tame your TOT.

Always the perfect gift
