No blueprint exists for dealing with a difficult boss, but sometimes a tried-and-true approach can alleviate the problem. Author Gini Graham Scott provides scenarios that illustrate 34 categories of bad bosses. Useful as these may be, they do not make for a smooth narrative. Scott describes each classification and provides a case study and list of possible solutions - though you might find it scary to read about so many incompetent people. Your own bad boss may be enough. Even if you are highly motivated to diagnose your boss's particular pathology, you will need to take some time to determine exactly where your personal nemesis resides in Scott's rogue's gallery of mismanagement. Then, she'll help you devise a strategy. getAbstract.com found the book more descriptive than prescriptive or analytical, but it affirms that you are not alone in your struggle, and it offers guidelines that may help you decide what to do. Here's hoping that the job market remains strong so - if need be - you can escape intact, with this guidebook in your hand.
