Secrets To Managing a Bad Boss -- Recorded Leadership TeleSeminar with special guests Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster

Have you ever said this: Bad_boss

“I love my job, but I hate my boss.”
“My supervisor is half my age with none of my experience.”

“Sure I have responsibility, but none of the authority to carry it out.”

“His first response to any idea that I propose is no.”

Sound familiar? Sooner or later, we all work for someone we can't stand – a constant criticizer, a yeller, a power-hungry jerk, or just someone who's mentally checked out.  But if you can’t afford to quit – and few of us can in this economy – the only option is to deal with it.

Working_for_you_book_cover In their previous bestseller Working With You is Killing Me, Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster helped people deal with troublesome coworkers.  Now they’re taking on toxic bosses in WORKING FOR YOU ISN’T WORKING FOR ME: The Ultimate Guide to Managing Your Boss

After years of advising clients, Crowley (a psychotherapist) and Elster (a business strategist) found that the single greatest determinant of happiness at work is the quality of your relationship with your boss.  When it's bad, you either become insecure or so resentful that you end up looking petty or incompetent.

Crowley and Elster offer a better option – reclaiming control of the relationship so you can be happier at work and move your career forward.

In this live and interactive TeleSeminar you will learn proven techniques for improving "bad boss" situations.  You will learn a practical, powerful four-step program for dealing with a bad boss:

  1. Detect – Identify the exact boss behaviors that drive you crazy.
  2. Detach – Discover concrete actions that will restore your power.
  3. Depersonalize - Learn how to take any annoying boss behavior less personally.
  4. Deal – Devise a plan to get what you need, and move your career forward.
