Overview

Do you find after leaving a meeting with your boss that you are muttering (and/or screeching once safely out of earshot) "What is [insert your boss' name here] thinking?!" At least once a day?

The bad news is that you can't necessarily just quit your job.
The good news is that you aren't alone; at one point or another, everyone wishes that their boss was easier to get along with, more consistent, or just plain nicer.

While commiseration alone won't solve your problems at work, "Help Your Boss Gain 'People Skills' (an employee's survival guide)" just might.

Does your boss yell first and ask questions later? 'People Skills' has tried-and-true methods of holding your own (and a few things you should really avoid doing). Is your boss incapable of seeing the seemingly obvious faults in one of your co-workers? 'People Skills' offers guidance in how to help your boss understand the situation.

You may be surprised by how easy it is to help your boss gain "People Skills" (without them even being aware of it!)

"Help Your Boss Gain 'People Skills' (an employee's survival guide)" is the 5th book in Ruth Haag's "Taming Your Inner Supervisor" series of business management books.

Meet the Author

Ruth Haag was assigned her first supervisory position over 30 years ago, and she quickly began to have problems. Trained as a scientist, she began to analyze what was going wrong, and developed a management system that worked.

Ruth now trains supervisors to identify their shortcomings and tame them, while creating management systems that focus on their employees, rather than themselves.

She is the CEO/CFO of Haag Environmental Company and the author of several books. She is also one of the publishers of the monthly newspaper, A Sandusky Bay Journal.
