What kind of asshole problem, exactly, are you dealing with right now? Stanford University professor Bob Sutton (author of the national bestseller, The No Asshole Rule) returns with a new book and a tailored game plan to deal with people we’d rather not have to deal with at all. The Asshole Survival Guide: How to Deal With People Who Treat You Like Dirt provides field-tested, evidenced-based, and sometimes surprising strategies to handle people who treat us poorly–avoiding them, outwitting them, disarming them, sending them packing, and developing protective psychological armor.
Perhaps most valuable, Sutton offers to help us identify and stifle our own inner jerks. This is an event for anyone looking for pragmatic strategies to preserving sanity in the workplace or who’s tired of having good days ruined by mean people.
