What kind of asshole problem,
exactly, are you dealing with right now? Stanford University
professor Bob Sutton (author of the national
bestseller, The No Asshole Rule
) returns with a new
book and a tailored game plan to deal with people we’d rather not
have to deal with at all. The Asshole Survival Guide: How
to Deal With People Who Treat You Like Dirt
field-tested, evidenced-based, and sometimes surprising strategies
to handle people who treat us poorly–avoiding them, outwitting
them, disarming them, sending them packing, and developing
protective psychological armor.
Perhaps most valuable, Sutton offers to help us identify and
stifle our own inner jerks. This is an event for anyone looking for
pragmatic strategies to preserving sanity in the workplace or who’s
tired of having good days ruined by mean people.
