From a review by Helen Weston:
(‘Staying sane in business’) sheds new light on the factors contributing to our psychological well-being and personal effectiveness at work, drawing on insights from the dual disciplines of psychology and psychotherapy.
… the authors take the most relevant ideas from both .. and distil them into tips, tools and techniques for … achieving … sanity in the world of work.
The first part of the book unpacks the contributing factors to psychological well-being at work…
Part two is an extensive collection of practical resources: things to do, watch, listen to and read.
From the book:
Really toxic bosses and colleagues
…Our top three risky characters, and ones that we are quite sure you’d be better off not working for or with, are the psychopath, the narcissist and the hubristic leader… All of these personality classifications are, of course, at the extreme. The problem is, they are over-represented in senior management circles. People who get to the top in organisations are by definition abnormal because most people don’t.
