Baby Your Boss
“Having a boss or co-worker who’s a bully not only makes your life miserable, but it can also make you sick. Luckily, I’ve found a new book that might help you cope,” says Sara Altshul of Health.com. She says that new research has found that 10 per cent of nearly 8,000 office workers surveyed in France had been “victimized” by an office bully. Another study of nurses at Boston College found that more than two-thirds of the 303 questioned had experienced “on-the-job public humiliation”. So what’s the solution? Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant: How to Manage Childish Boss Behavior and Thrive in Your Job is a new book by Lynn Taylor. Altshul recommends it for giving advice on “reinforcing good behaviour” in your boss, “learning their triggers” and “making it fun” – all tactics Taylor learned off her two small boys.
