You deal with them every day: the bullying boss, the underachieving employee, the coworker who insults you and then claims to be "just teasing." Some are even worse: sexual harassers, thieves, and utter incompetents. How can you focus on your job and advance your career while being constantly surrounded by jerks of every description? Start by reading Jerks at Work. In this upbeat, practical guide, you'll discover the time-tested strategies, tactics, and coping mechanisms you need to deal with all of the classic work-jerk types, from screamers and impractical jokers to egomaniacs, complainers, and non-stop talkers. You'll also find state-of-the-art approaches for handling the newest breeds of jerk: the cell-phone slacker, e-mail idiot, and those appallingly imaginative individuals who seem bent on discovering new and outrageous ways to may your work-life a misery. At other times the jerk in question is not an individual at all, but an entire department or organization. The book supplies extremely helpful tips on surviving a dysfunctional corporate culture and, if necessary, separating from it without endangering your future. Drawn from actual emails and letters sent to workplace columnist Dr. Ken Lloyd by bewildered employees and bosses across America, Jerks at Work is the resource you need to take control of your work environment and start looking forward to going there every day.
