The boss did not come with a user manual – until now! This book allows you to identify, from the start, what sort of boss you may be letting yourself in for. The strategies suggested are practical instructions to improve your communication skills, body language and actions. This book also works for bosses. Happy employees lead to happy customers, and a happy customer is likely to be more valuable than an unhappy one. Are your employees happy?

Synopsis

Is Your Boss Mad? by Jill Walker

Helps you learn how to deal with bosses who are bullies or who let you down. This book also enables you from the interview process, to identify what sort of boss you may be potentially letting yourself in for right from the start. It further suggests ways to bring a little levity to the workplace, without impacting on productivity or focus.

Reviews

?This is much more than an inspired self-help guide for the embattled employee. Jill Walker?s knowledgeable and entertaining book should be required reading for managers everywhere. They say that people work better when they feel good about themselves, so how hard can good management be? Keep this book visible. They?ll know you?re on to them.? Mark Bradley, author, consumer columnist. ?This book could save your life. It?s a surgical handbook for managing your boss better than they manage you.? Guy Browning, Guardian Columnist.


About the Author

Jill Walker found her way into the workforce by accident and at the age of 16 followed her father into the world of Ship Broking, achieving the obscure record of being the youngest woman admitted to the floor of the Baltic Exchange. Now working for a software company, her career has allowed her to travel extensively and gain access to many executives of the US and UK top 500 companies. This has given her an incisive view of the world of business and management, along with the many hardships and disappointments during the past decade, this journey has forged in her a character of knowledge, wit and determination, from which she has drawn to write this, her first book. Jill is now living in East Sussex with her four daughters.
