9780399533174: 45 Things You Do That Drive Your Boss Crazy--And How to Avoid Them

A veteran career columnist shows employees how to avoid getting bounced out the door.

In colorful letters from outraged managers as well as mystified employees who can't seem to figure out why they're not getting ahead, career columnist Anita Bruzzese gets an inside view on the types of behavior bosses love and reward- and all the unspoken things, large and small, that they can't stand.

In this engaging and much-needed book, she reveals the most common complaints from bosses about what their employees are doing wrong-from copying the wrong people on e-mail to kicking the soda machine in a moment of rage to blogging about their jobs-and offers advice on how to shape up and work right.

About the Author:

Anita Bruzzese has written the "On the Job" column for the Gannett News Service since 1992. It is read by an estimated eight million readers in print and millions more online.

Review:

Bruzzese's book might seem superfluous to employees who think they are exemplary. But, in workplaces, my observation is that few employees ever reach the exemplary stage. There is always room to improve relationships with co-workers, underlings and bosses. Bruzzese's guide is a smart place to begin. -- Kansas City Star

Odds are that you've learned by now that such things as "treating the workplace like it's the love shack," "earning a reputation as whiner, drama queen or general pain in the neck," or "giving lackluster speeches or presentations"--three of Bruzzese's lessons--are going to keep you from being promoted. Still, it's fun to read about employees who committed those sins and still expected huge raises and promotions. -- CFO.com

Peter Drucker once told me that half the leaders he met did not need to learn what to do -- they needed to learn what to stop doing. This is a wonderful "what to stop doing" guide. Practical, useful, and fun, it provides great coaching for employees at all levels. -- Marshall Goldsmith, author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There

To be super successful, read "45 Things You Do That Drive Your Boss Crazy." You will understand how to do the things that will drive your boss to promote you, give you a raise, have your future earning power expanded, and have a better life and future for yourself and your company by creating massive value for everyone. -- Mark Victor Hansen, cocreator of #1 New York Times bestselling series of Chicken Soup for the Soul

You'll also chuckle at the list of don'ts as you'll probably think about the real life examples from your workplace. However, you'll probably blanch when you realise that you've done some "bad" things as well. But never fear - Bruzzese always gives you numerous tips on how to get over your snafu and emerge with a better image. -- The Malaysia Star
