GOOD BOSS, BAD BOSS: How to Be the Best . . . and Learn from the Worst
Sutton digs into the nitty-gritty of what the best and worst bosses do, a theme runs throughout Good Boss, Bad Boss - which brings together the diverse lessons and is a hallmark of great bosses: They work doggedly to "stay in tune" with how their followers and superiors, peers, and customers too react to what they say and do. The best bosses are acutely aware that their success depends on having the self-awareness to control their moods and moves, to accurately interpret their impact on others, and to make adjustments on the fly that continuously spark effort, dignity, and pride among their people.
This book is the personal coach that every boss deserves: warm, smart, and freakishly good at translating scientific reserach into practical tips that will help keep you at the top of your game. There are so many great principles and ideas to live up to, backed up by real data - it should be every boss' responsibility to read and understand it. From Sutton's useful steps for getting "in tune" with what it feels like to work for you, to evidence that eliminating the negative is more powerful than accentuating the positive, to the importance of demonstrating confidence with the admission that you're not always right.
Good Boss, Bad Boss teaches the art and the science of practical leadership for the 21 st century. I would consider it a must-read for anyone looking to improve their impact and accelerate their desired outcomes.
While his every word is backed up by significant research, he writes in simple sentences that make enormous sense. Typical in this book, Sutton's little chart in Chapter 3, 'Smart Versus Wise Bosses, ' is worth, all by itself, times the price of admission.
Good Boss, Bad Boss is as good as it gets. But Robert I. Sutton, a professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford and the Stanford Institute of Design where we have overlapped , is an exception. His new book, out now, is his best to date. Good Boss, Bad Boss is food for thought for managers and leaders in organizations large and small.
It is packed with insight, lists of "how to" suggestions, and questions for bosses to ask themselves. Help Centre. Track My Order. My Wishlist Sign In Join.
