As Dr. Sutton digs into the nitty-gritty of what the best (and worst) bosses do, a theme runs throughout Good Boss, Bad Boss – which brings together the diverse lessons and is a hallmark of great bosses: They work doggedly to “stay in tune” with how their followers (and superiors, peers, and customers too) react to what they say and do. The best bosses are acutely aware that their success depends on having the self-awareness to control their moods and moves, to accurately interpret their impact on others, and to make adjustments on the fly that continuously spark effort, dignity, and pride among their people.

I thought the author’s book, The No Asshole Rule, was one of the best business books I have ever read and continue to recommend it to friends. This new book, Good Boss, Bad Boss should be given to all graduating college students since they will one day be the boss. This is such an easy to read book that is full of wisdom and makes excellent points about how a good boss can make or break a company. If you own the company, you want all of your employees to read this and create a dialogue about management.
