As I will mention later, this book is not fiction. It’s about real-life behaviors by bosses and supervisors. None of it is made up. Some of the behaviors described to me were so outrageous that it just seemed they were designed to inspire contempt. So I went with that assumption and wrote with that perspective.
The 7 Secrets to Making Your People Loathe You…
Are you as tired as I am of trying to get the people you manage to regard you with warmth and respect? After all, where’s the proof that workers who like their bosses and managers are more productive? It seems to me that army drill sergeants are the perfect model for getting people to perform…and everyone they command pretty much despises them. Could it be that this is a better management style? If you suspect that workers are more productive when they detest you, you’re in luck! I can tell you exactly how to make that happen.
The great thing is you don’t have to break any laws to make people loathe you. The people who are the best at this know exactly where that line is, and know just how close they can get without going over. All it takes is planning and practice!
