An indispensable guide to dealing with challenging, childish boss behavior and building a great career. Based on extensive interviews and research, Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant™ helps employees understand their managers and how to cope with them when they are difficult and frustrating. It reveals the most common irritating boss behaviors, including childish and bullying antics. Most people simply endure the tirades, mood swings, and incessant questions of their tyrannical bosses, but this book shows readers how to build positive relationships with even the most out-of-control boss, and still thrive in their jobs.

The key to success lies in dealing with a Terrible Office Tyrant (or TOT™) much like a parent deals with a troublesome toddler. From brats to little lost lambs, virtually every kind of boss is covered here. With true stories and time-tested solutions, this is the perfect guide for dealing with managers who slip into their Terrible Twos. These bosses may be distracted, whiny, fickle and moody, bullying and demanding, needy, stubborn, or just plain self-centered. Taylor takes employees behind all the bossy blustering, so that they can achieve their goals, and career excellence.

Bosses will also benefit from this guide to gain insight on what not to do with their team. CEOs know instinctively that Terrible Office Tyrants (TOTs) wreak havoc in their companies, harming the bottom line. A special section helps them mitigate TOT behavior – for a more productive workplace.
