Good Boss, Bad Boss

How to Be the Best... and Learn from the Worst

By Robert Sutton

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

What great bosses do and how to become one.

Good Boss, Bad Boss was inspired by the thousands of emails, calls and conversations that Robert Sutton received after publishing his bestseller The No Asshole Rule - he found that most of the stories and cries for help he received revolved around one central figure in every workplace: THE BOSS.

Sutton's subsequent research showed that the success of every boss depended heavily on how well (or badly) they managed those they worked with and in Good Boss, Bad Boss he demonstrates this by weaving together the best psychological and management secrets with true stories, to reveal the mindset and moves of the best bosses, and contrasts them with the behaviour of the worst.

If you want to understand how the best bosses think and act so that you can get better at your job or find a better boss to work for, Good Boss, Bad Boss has all the answers.

Slam-Dunk Success

Byron Scott, Charles Norris, Jon Warech
Authors:
Byron Scott, Charles Norris, Jon Warech

Great leadership begins with great understanding. No one knows that better than basketball legend Byron Scott and lifelong business executive Charlie Norris who, respectively, won NBA championships and resurrected multimillion-dollar corporations by being team players no matter their position. Whether it's on the basketball court, in the boardroom, or in everyday life, getting to the heads and hearts of people is paramount to getting the most out of them. In SLAM-DUNK SUCCESS, Scott and Norris share their parallel formulas for victory and prove that, with the right tools, winning can happen anywhere. As a player Scott won three championships with the Los Angeles Lakers, and as coach he twice took the New Jersey Nets to the NBA Finals and won Coach of the Year honors with the New Orleans Hornets. With every team his role changed, but his winning mentality never faltered. As CEO of McKesson Water, Charlie Norris turned a $200 million-dollar company into a company that sold ten years later for $1.1 billion dollars and, as chairman of the board of Freshpet, he helped lead the start-up from early stage testing to become a publicly traded company with a market value of over $350 million. In each job, he led with the same amount of conviction and care.Their book-which grew from their unlikely friendship and realization that two men from completely different backgrounds could have the same leadership ideals-breaks down their keys to motivating others, negotiating deals, and creating prosperity from scratch. Their blueprint includes lessons on listening, turning failure into learning opportunities, and delegating authority with extreme precision.Leadership is a full-time job and Byron Scott and Charlie Norris's story is a guidebook for leaders in all fields and in any position looking to better both their careers and lives. Champions are formed when people make those around them better and this book shows how you can be a winner every day.

Linchpin

Seth Godin
Authors:
Seth Godin

Why are some people easily outsourced, downsized, or freelanced into obscurity, while others have their pick of opportunities? In his most powerful book yet, Seth Godin argues that it's more essential than ever to become indispensable - to become a linchpin. Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations: they invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They love their work and pour their best selves into it and turn each day into a kind of art - and, in today's world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom. Godin shows that the key to being indispensable is overcoming the fears that hold most of us back. If you have you ever found a shortcut that others missed, seen a new way to resolve a conflict, or made a connection with someone others couldn't reach, then you have what it takes to become indispensable. It's time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map.

Beyond the Mat

Julie Rosenberg
Authors:
Julie Rosenberg

Practicing yoga is an extremely popular way to get fit, but its underlying philosophy can offer so much more to calm the mind and discover untapped personal power. In BEYOND THE MAT, business leader, MD, and certified yoga teacher Julie Rosenberg shows you how to bring yoga out of the studio and into your personal and professional life to achieve success and become a more effective leader. She shares how yoga is more than just poses (though those do help with backs tired from hunching in front of the computer all day), with an explanation of the principles, real-life examples, and anecdotes from the author's own professional career. Yoga's philosophical principles extend far beyond the mat, for example:* Yama (yoga's moral precepts) apply to leadership--how we rightsize work in our lives, relate to colleagues, and cultivate compassion for ourselves and others* Dharana (being fully present) helps to manage time effectively, set healthy time limits on your work, and avoid distractions* Pranayama (breath control) mitigates stress and helps you stay calm in difficult situations

Intentional Living

John C. Maxwell
Authors:
John C. Maxwell

We all have a longing to be significant. We want to make a contribution, to be a part of something noble and purposeful. But many people wrongly believe significance is unattainable. They worry that it's too big for them to achieve. That they have to have an amazing idea, be a certain age, have a lot of money, or be powerful or famous to make a real difference.The good news is that none of those things is necessary for you to achieve significance and create a lasting legacy. The only thing you need to achieve significance is to be intentional. And to do that, all you need to do is start. You can't make an impact sitting still and doing nothing. Every major accomplishment that's ever been achieved started with a first step. Sometimes it's hard; other times it's easy, but no matter what, you have to do it if you want to get anywhere in life.In INTENTIONAL LIVING, John Maxwell will help you take that first step, and the ones that follow, on your personal path through a life that matters.

The Rule Breaker's Book of Business

Roger Mavity
Authors:
Roger Mavity

In The Rule Breaker's Book of Business, Roger Mavity provides clear advice and guidance for anybody ambitious about work, yet uncertain of their route to success.The book is devoted to the simple - yet vital - idea that success at work is much more likely to be achieved if we are happy and confident in what we do. But it also believes that fun, and success, at work don't come from slavishly following the rules. On the contrary, it's only by ignoring the conventional wisdom, by breaking a few rules, by daring to use different means, that we have a chance of achieving something remarkable.The short and refreshingly simple chapters are divided into three sections: dealing with money, dealing with the people around you and dealing with yourself. Each chapter identifies a common problem at work and resolves each problem in a clear and approachable way.Chapters include:- Cash is King (and Ace, Queen and Jack) - How to a write a business plan, and a strategy, and is there a difference?- Is there life beyond email?- The art of delegationTo find out more, visit www.rogermavity.com.
