Coping With Toxic Managers, Subordinates, and Other Impossible PeopleBook - 2004
Some people are toxic: narcissistic, aggressive, inflexible, unethical, ready to scapegoat, capable of transforming any workplace into an unending nightmare. How do people cope with such individuals, while protecting both career AND sanity? Simplistic, cookie-cutter solutions don't work. In Coping with Nightmare Managers, world-renowned psychiatrist and organizational consultant Roy Lubit shows the reader techniques that will. Drawing on his extensive experience as both a mental health professional and an organizational consultant for PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Lubit offers concrete, proven advice for subordinates, colleagues and superiors alike. Readers learn what's really driving their toxic manager... how to cope with the emotional stress of dealing with them... and how to create a strategy that reflects their individual personality, while drawing on today's powerful new insights into emotional intelligence. The techniques Lubit teaches apply to personal relationships with toxic individuals as well.
