Good Boss, Bad Boss
Posted by Jon Littman on September 26, 2010 in Innovation, Performance, Storytelling

THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE with more good bosses. Bob Sutton, the New York Times Bestselling Author of The No A****le Rule has done more to make the workplace a more humane place than legions of high-priced consultants. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Bob for many years, and he’s one of the few authors writing about business who understands creativity. A Stanford professor, he shuns formulas and has a great gift for finding the insights that matter. He also can be both fearless and funny – all on the same page. Hundreds of thousands of people read Bob’s last book, a huge international bestseller.  Good Boss, Bad Boss focuses more on the positive, filled with poignant stories of the many little sincere gestures and big courageous efforts that make a boss really, really good. Of course, for contrast, the book also has marvelous stories of some really stinking bosses, the kind we all hope and pray will fail. Bob’s book inspired me this week to recount a true life morality tale I call BOSS POOP.

Check out Bob’s wonderful book on Amazon, and my piece posted on his blog and on Psychology Today:
