Contents Notes
What workplace assholes do and why you know so many -- The damage done: why every workplace needs the rule -- How to implement the rule, enforce it, and keep it alive -- How to stop your "inner jerk" from getting out -- When assholes reign: tips for surviving nasty people and workplaces -- The virtues of assholes -- The no asshole rule as a way of life. Dr. Robert Sutton spent years studying a phenomenon that almost everyone has experienced and/or participated in, while on the job: that breed of coworker specifically tasked with making work more difficult for everyone around them. Here he shows listeners effective ways to identify and combat these bullies, creeps, and despots while making a place of business more conducive for actual work.
