What's an employee to do when the boss attacks or demeans or holds the reins too tight or is unscrupulous or unfair?
The very thought of trying to cope with such bosses makes most of us apprehensive. Disconcerted, demoralized, discombobulated - even mildly depressed - we find it difficult to deal with those who buffalo us or weasel their way into our lives. We simply hate - without trying to make sense of a messy situation.
In Coping With Difficult Bosses Robert Bramson is the best friend a worker could have. He shows us how, by understanding the dynamics of the bullies, the schemers, the know-it-alls, we can begin to change our interactions with them and alter our working lives for the better. As a study in personality types alone, it makes for fascinating reading.
Bramson's key is coping. He tells you exactly what you need to do when dealing with managers who have learned how to take advantage of you by bringing difficult behavior into the relationship. Bad managers buttress their own strength and power by demonstrating how weak or out of control you are. Their bullying techniques are effective because they force you to react in specific ways. Coping strategies break the cycle through the use of substitute responses.
The methods and techniques detailed in Coping With Difficult Bosses have worked successfully for thousands of readers at every level, in a variety of different organizations. Bramson's wise, lively, and patiently offered advice will help you to feel more in control of, and less helplessly frustrated by, your work.

From Library Journal:

Bramson, author of Coping with Difficult People ( LJ 5/1/87) and The Fast Track Blues ( LJ 6/15/90), focuses on recognizing, understanding, and dealing with different types of difficult bosses. In short vignettes, he describes an array of management behaviors: bosses who are artful dodgers, bosses who demean, bosses who are always right, and bosses who cling to power. For each boss behavior pattern, Bramson provides strategies for subordinates to handle the situation from a position of analysis and preparation. Each vignette has accompanying step-by-step techniques to use. Recommended for general business collections. See also Stanley Bing's Crazy Bosses , LJ 1/92.--Ed.
