IN THIS SUMMARY

At some point, many employees ask themselves “How can I deal with my boss?” Usually they are frustrated with someone they view as a bad boss, or they want to help a good boss perform better. This question is asked more frequently in times of stress when organizations are continually pushing for better results, reducing head count, and trying new initiatives. In Managing Your Manager, Gonzague Dufour suggests that employees can learn how to deal with their managers once they understand what drives them. He categorizes managers into six types, and clarifies the traits that characterize them. He also defines a few subtypes. Dufour offers advice to employees on how to work with each type, and notes actions employees should not take depending on the specific managerial type. Importantly, he describes strategies they can deploy to manage their managers.
